A complete team should have 6 main players and 6 reserves consisting of Women players and Junior players in the first ever combined Team Online Olympiad. Once the team composition is completed as required by FIDE, MCF will submit the names of the players regardless if we are able to complete the maximum 12 players requirement or less as long as FIDE team format requirements are met.
MCF looks forward to receiving more applications from many Malaysians who are keen to be part of our National Team in this inaugural championship.
