Turkish Chess Federation withdraws request for arbitration at CAS

Turkish Chess Federation withdraws request for arbitration at CAS

The newsletter of the European Chess Union informs that legal representatives of the Turkish Chess Federation have notified the ECU's legal representatives that their clients withdrew the request for arbitration at the CAS. Consequently, the hearing scheduled for January 15th, 2013 was cancelled.

This appeal was related to the bidding procedure for competitions in 2014/5. Therefore, the decisions of the ECU Board have been confirmed as valid. In accordance with these decisions, Reykjavik will host the European Team Championship 2015, while the European Club Cup 2014 will be awarded to either Bilbao (Spain) or Plovdiv (Bulgaria).
