The following events have been approved by the Malaysian Chess Federation Tournament Committee chaired by MCF Vice President I – Dr Zaidan Zulkipli. A few events have already concluded but, a few more are being planned from next week onwards until early June 2021.
MCF expects the number of events organized will gradually increase by mid May once the Raya celebration concludes. While many organizers might shy away from organizing “Over-The-Board” and/or National Level events during the month of Ramadhan and Syawal, organizing online events – which does not require any travelling or moving about, may still continue during the daytime since it does not interfere with Muslims Ramadhan praying rituals which is usually held at night.
MCF would like to remind organizers who wishes to organize National Level events, or organizers who seeks support letter from MCF to apply for Ministry of Education (MOE) curriculum points accreditation events, to submit their application at least 6 weeks before their event is scheduled. MCF will take approximately 1 week to approve an event while MOE will require a 1 month lead to approve such an application.
