All players for the first weekend must be
registered with the 4NCL by close of play on
Thursday 13 October 2022.
The 4NCL rules set out the information required
for each player. Players named on the initial
registration list must either be registered with
FIDE prior to the list being submitted or

Entry fees are as follows:
Division 1, Division 2: £400

Entry fees entitle teams to nominate up to 16

Division 4) in total will be subject to the
usual registration fee.
Registration fees and wildcard fees are as set
out in the rules.

fees for the 2023-2024 season).
