Before you complete the form, please note the following points:


If you don't have a credit/debit card it's possible to use somebody else's card or PayPal account to pay the entrance fee. In other words, the name entered here is the player name in the Congress, and not the name of the payer.
The following cards are accepted:
  • Visa / Delta / Electron
  • Mastercard / Eurocard
  • Maestro
  • American Express.


Entry fees are set out here.

This is a registered ECF Game Fee event. Players who are current ECF Members at Silver, Gold or Platinum level on the date of the congress will have £9 deducted from their entry fee.

Bronze ECF members should note that their membership will be upgraded to Silver by the ECF following processing of the congress results for grading. Some delay is inevitable, and in the meantime the surcharged entry fee will apply in any future congresses. Upgrading prior to the congress, either online using this link or via the ECF office, is recommended.

Multiple Entries

If you want to make multiple entries, please pay for each entry as a separate PayPal transaction.
