ECU President Silvio Danailov participated in the 82nd FIDE Congress

ECU President Silvio Danailov took part in the 82nd FIDE Congress, which was held on October 15-22, 2011 in the town of Krakow, Poland.

On the Congress, Mr. Danailov gave full report about all the activities and tournaments done by the European Chess Union. He had meeting with the Presidents of the continental federations and many representatives of different national federations and had constructive conversations about the chess development in Europe and the other parts of the world.

Mr. Silvio Danailov contributed to the work and decisions of the 82nd FIDE Congress with different ideas and suggestions.

His main thesis was that the proposals of the FIDE Events Commission concerning the topics “Regulations on Registration & Licensing of players” and “Proposal to charge rating fees directly to organizers” would cause a significant decrease of in the number of chess competitions or their transformation into unofficial ones – with unrated status. Proposed by the Events Commission direct communication between FIDE and tournament organizers seriously harms the FIDE and ECU Statutes, according to which partners of both chess organizations in each country are the national chess federations. Mr. Danailov also claimed that a huge number of organizers do not have knowledge enough to fulfill communication standard with FIDE, regarding the rating of tournaments. According to Mr. Danailov the annual payment of licenses would instantly decrease the number of active chess players ready to participate in the competitions.
