Chess Association Malawi, in partnership with world chess governing body FIDE, will host a three-day FIDE Arbiters’ Seminars this month.
The intensive three-day Seminar, designed to train Arbiters’ Seminar is a certification and promotional course required by all National Arbiters to attain an international recognization title FIDE Arbiter and subsequently an International Arbiter title.
Like a referee in football or umpire in baseball, an Arbiter plays a key role in chess. And their role is to preside over a match and make sure both players following all the rules of the game.
The Arbiters Seminar will happen concurrently with the 2021 Africa Individual Chess Championship scheduled from the 17th to 28th of May in Lilongwe. IA/IO Messaoudi, Bechir from Tunisia, and Malawian IA Mkumbwa will be the lectures.
The languages of the Seminar will be English and a translation offered in French. Those interested are expected to pay USD 50 and the Seminar kicks off from the 20th to 23rd of May.
