Non-ENG PLAYERS Players who belong to a FIDE nation other than ENG (e.g. SCO or USA) don’t need to belong to the ECF but it will cost them more to play. HOWEVER you do need to quote a FIN (FIDE Identification Number) with your entry. Non-English players will have to obtain a FIN from their national federation or ask me, and I will do it for you. English players – I will register you with FIDE directly.
