Message from the desk of Dr Simon Lawson, Chair of the FICS International Sporting Federation Commission.
All required detail for upcoming games will be posted once we have received it and worked out the logistics. Our primary concern is the health and safety of any team that we do send to these games. At this stage, there is very little detail available. Time is of the essence. If FICS feels that our team’s health and safety will be at all jeopardised, we will decline the invite to provide services. The likelihood is that we will have to look at a largely European based team for the CSIT games, due to COVID protocols and travel restrictions. We would need to comply with international travel requirements, then the local requirements/protocols and finally the event requirements/protocols.
As you can see, there are a large number of matters that need clarification on before we can even begin to advertise the event. As soon as we have more information, we will keep you all posted. Thank you for your interest in this event. We are really hoping that this event happens and are sharing in your excitement at this point. Please watch this space for updates!
