The European Cup from 2011
Play in the top tournaments in Europe in 2013,
and score points towards a share of the prize fund.
The new style European Cup (ECup) started its 2011-2012 season after
the European Go Congress in Bordeaux in August 2011.
A tournament in the ECup pays into the ECup fund for the points to be awarded
and then gives the points to the European players ending in the top places.
The money paid is held by the EGF and all goes to the prize fund paid at the end of the season.
There are five levels of tournament with different fees and points.
Tournament organisers: Please propose to the EGF your tournaments to join the ECup
and get the extra advertising and prestige that being in the ECup offers.
A country may have up to three ECup tournaments per year.
The EGF executive or the officer in charge will attempt to have the ECup balanced
geographically and financially and spread over the calendar.
There may be restrictions as to the notice period allowed for a certain event or its rating classification,
but the earlier you get your event on the calendar the better!
The prize fund is distributed to the players with most points at the end of the season.
Note: Only European nationals (including Israel) can win European Cup prizes.
The prize fund will be distributed among the top place-getters.
The winner's prize is 2011-2012 was 1500 euro out of a total 0f 7000 euro.
