TAFCA ONLINE LEAGUE 2020 (New)
Well here we go with a new chapter in TAFCA history as they start holding chess competitions “ONLINE”!
Dundee Chess Club as an affiliated TAFCA Club, will be supporting this new venture. We have 4 teams so far if you have not entered an wish to do so please (Contact Jim Anderson )
The COVID-19 pandemic was a disaster for the world and for OTB chess matches, but every cloud it seems has a silver lining as TAFCA pushed it`self to find other avenues to play matches on!
The “TAFCA League Online” will be run the same way as the OTB TAFCA League, but with a few minor changes to accommodate the fact we are playing online.
All the information you need including the rules, how to play online, and any other relevant information etc can be found on the TAFCA Website Here, under TAFCA Online! You can also download how to play Tafca league matches online on lichess Here
This is a trial run to iron out any possible problems before the start of the 2020/21 season. In the short term we might have to play the 2020/21 season online (hopefully not), but in the long term this might be a permanent “TAFCA SUMMER LEAGUE” run between June to Sept for those that like to play all year round!
We are looking for your support, but be quick as the deadline for teams is the 15th June 2020!
