  1. Task Force for the Reform of the FIDE Statutes

    TF2019

    In February 2019 the newly established Task Force for the Reform of the FIDE Statutes started its operations. The main activities of this ambitious working group are related to a deep analysis of relevant FIDE documents, the team brainstorming, discussion and agreement on a new logical restructuring and clear terminology. During the whole process a regular communication with FIDE responsible people is a vital condition for preparing new FIDE Statutes to be approved by the respective FIDE General Assembly by the end of 2019. The main objective of the Task Force efforts is to recommend new FIDE Statutes to serve as a formal base for FIDE as a modern, lean, transparent and efficient sport organisation.

    First meeting of the Task Force was held in Lausanne on 16-17 February 2019. During an intensive and creative discussion the members agreed on main pillars of the future FIDE Statutes, more clear and logical structure and suggestions leading to a modern and flexible management in line of a good and professional governance that should be one of first important signals to future potential sponsors and partners of a chess community. By the next meeting that was agreed to happen at the beginning of April again in Lausanne, the members agreed to come with a very first draft of the FIDE Statutes including with more detailed suggestions especially in the areas of Financial and Tournament Regulations. Of course relevant and not only financial and tournament stakeholders will be consulted during the work of the Task Force plus it was agreed to suggest to the Constitutional Commission to have a common plenary meeting at some reasonable point in order to finalise a good product.

    Two places are reserved for the players who finish 1st and 2nd in the 2019 FIDE Grand Prix Series. If either one of these players also qualifies via Clauses A, B, or C, and/or is GM Carlsen, the reserved place(s) is (are) awarded to the next non-qualifying player in the final ranking.
