HIARCS Chess Software is proud to sponsor the ICCF.

International Correspondence Chess Federation

ICCF is the International Correspondence Chess Federation. ICCF was founded in 1951 as a new appearance of the ICCA (International Correspondence Chess Association), which was founded in 1945, as successor of the IFSB (Internationaler Fernschachbund), founded in 1928.

Finally in 1928 the first international league (IFSB) was founded. Aljechin, Keres and Euwe have been well-known enthusiastic correspondence chess players during some periods of their chess career.

ICCF, the present successor of the IFSB, is a federation of national member organizations. At this moment there are world-wide over 58 national member federations.

ICCF organizes all kind of tournaments: individual and team championships, title norm tournaments and promotion tournaments (from Open Class until Master Class). Both in postal and in webserver versions.

Almost the same kind of tournaments also exists within the 4 zones into which ICCF is divided: Europe, Latin America, North America/Pacific and Africa/Asia. 

The ICCF is the place to be to play correspondence chess at all levels of play from amateur to World Championship level.

Many of our HIARCS Chess Explorer customers are members of the ICCF and use HIARCS Chess Software and Opening Books to prepare.
