MCF Chess League Suspended

MCF Coronavirus advice update 15.03.2020



While Council’s advice issued last week regarding the coronavirus crisis was both sound and sensible, things have been moving very fast and it is already clear that new guidance is required.



The ECF has now recommended that all evening leagues suspend their activities. In response to this, as well as to numerous concerns expressed to the Council of the MCF, and in line with action taken this weekend by other local leagues, it has been decided to suspend the Manchester league for at least the next five weeks, with immediate effect.



It is possible that clubs with matches already arranged for this week might agree to go ahead with them; this will be at their own risk of course, and in such a case the guidance offered by the MCF last week remains relevant.



The next MCF Council meeting is scheduled for Monday 8th June 2020, but the situation will be monitored on a week-by-week basis and clubs will be kept informed of developments.



Best wishes to all.



John Walton (President)
