Confirmation of participation – Players qualified to the World Championship ’21 by the EDC List


To all the EDC National Federation (by e-mail)

To the Draughts Players qualified by the EDC List(by EDC official website)

Dear President,

Dear Draughts Players qualified by the EDC List to the World Championship 2021,


as already communicated on 9th April, the EDC Board decided that the European Qualification Tournament will not be disputed and the “Provisional EDC Qualification list for WC21 -Active Players 50 games”  (also called EDC list for WC21) published and transmitted on 7th February will be used to select the European players of the next World Championship in Tallinn .

In addition, as you can read in the short report of FMJD Council, published on 16th April (point 2), the FMJD Board asked to continental federations to specify the list of participants by May 1st , with final list on May 10th.


All that said and to avoid unpleasant issues, the EDC asks to indicate the willingness, of players selected by the EDC list for WC21, to participate in the WC21, or to report any waiver to EDC.


Then, all those who are qualified by the “EDC list for WC21” will have to pay (directly or by their Federation) in advance 100 € as pre-inscription fee for the WC 2021, to FMJD/EDC bank account:


Beneficiary: FMJD


BIC (Swift code): ABNANL2A

IBAN account no: NL21ABNA0561905177

(Notice that this is separate FMJD account for EDC)


The payment of the fee must be done before May 2nd and must be notified to EDC Board ( by e-mail.


If the WC will be played:  EDC will transfer the inscription to FMJD. In case of not participation of a player there will not be any refund of the fee to the player/Federation.


If the WC21 will not be played: EDC will refund 100% of the pre-inscription to every player/Federation;


If a player does not pay the pre-inscription to EDC before May 2nd (no exceptions) it will be considered by EDC as a refuse to play the World Championship. From May 3rd he/she will be replaced with another player from the EDC reserve list, applying the same rules till May 9th.


Best regards.
