USCF News: USCF Fees for FIDE Change Print E-mail
October 29, 2009
The USCF affiliate charges for the FIDE rating of events will be raised effective March 1, 2010 for Swisses and Jan 1, 2010 for round robins.  The new fee for Swisses shall be $2 per FIDE ratable performance, with a minimum fee of $60 per section. The new fee for round robins or matches shall be, in dollars, an amount similar to the fee charged in Euros by FIDE to USCF.  The exact amount will be determined by the Executive Director after consideration of the likely value of the Euro. This fee may be reviewed quarterly, with changes taking effect three months after that review.
