The SCF website regularly updates its events calendar with upcoming FIDE rated tournaments. You can find the calendar in the “Events” Section. To register for a FIDE rated tournament, you must first have a FIDE ID.

You may apply for a FIDE ID through the Singapore Chess Federation if you are a Singaporean or a Permanent Resident of Singapore. A one-time admin fee will be charged for registration of new FIDE IDs. Please find the instructions and application form here

Ordinary Members, first and foremost, are allowed to vote at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Issues voted upon and discussed in the AGM include SCF Council elections and SCF annual reports. If you would like to have your voice heard in the running of the SCF, becoming an ordinary SCF Member is a good way to do so.

Additionally, Members receive several perks, including a free subscription to the Singapore Chess Magazine, and lower prices for SCF events than the general public.

Please refer to the “Memberships” Section for more information
