AIDEF - GO-MAKKAH partnership

8 ° International Francophone Chess Tournaments

The announcement had already been published, but now it's official, the 8th International Francophone Chess Tournaments will take place well in Tunisia, on the island of Djerba, from December 26, 2020 to January 4, 2021.

AIDEF President Patrick Van Hoolandt and Vice-President Mohamed Zouaoui went to Paris in mid-March to organize, at the Maison de la Tunisie, in the presence of Tahar Battikh its director and member of the bureau of the Tunisian Chess Federation, a preparatory work meeting for the organization of the next Francophonie 2020 championships.

The next day they went to Ivry-sur-Seine where they were welcomed by the CEO of the tour operator GO-Makkah, Mr. Chokri Saidi, at the headquarters of his company.

The working session was very cordial and constructive and finally led to the signing of a collaboration agreement between AIDEF and GO-Makkah for the organization of the 8th RIDEF.

The organizer will be Mr. Chokri Saidi, the tournament director Mr. Mohamed Zouaoui and the main international referee Dominique Dervieux. Participants will be accommodated and play competitions at the Djerba Aqua Resort 4 * hotel. The total price is 15,000 euros. The participation fees have been reduced to 30 euros for the classic tournament and to 10 euros for the blitz.

All the information and conditions of participation will soon be available via a website specific to the 8 ° RIDEF and under development.

The files containing all the details will be published on social networks and invitations sent to all AIDEF members in early April.

The spirit of conviviality appreciated by the regulars, the welcome reserved for the participants, the tourist visits, the ancillary activities as well as the dinner and the New Year's Eve festivities will make this tournament an unforgettable event.

We expect more of you this year!
