Services

Tournaments

  • We offer ICCF rated events with norms available at low cost. Also innovative events like the Class Championships (not offered at any other ICCF zone), and strong zonal championships.

Payment facilities

  • Players may pay tournament fees in our store using Paypal, debit, or credit cards. These transactions are handled securely following industry standards. We are flexible, if you make a payment in error simply contact us for a refund.

Free events

  • Using the ICCF free-events system, we offer a total of 20 free entries to ICCF events per year. These entries cannot be used when registering to our WZ events, only tournaments primarily organized by ICCF.

For Federations

  • Our Financial system offers unlimited credit to good standing federations, balances are due on March 15 each year for expenses incurred the previous year.
  • Entries collected directly from players will generate a small refund to federations.
  • If your federation would like to join the World Zone, please review the procedure here.
