World Backgammon Federation

The EUBGF board has the decided to extend the federation to all countries. This means that all nations in the world can become member of the federation. It also means that the federation will change name to World Backgammon Federation.

This have a number of implications and we will describe the process for this change in the following weeks. The federation will contact national federations and let them know that they can become member and help us promoting Backgammon as a mind sport and work at a common set of rules and make sure that we have the right processes and committees to maintain these. We will post more details on this process and expect it to be finalized be the end of 2018 with new statutes.

Requirements to become full or associate member will be described in details on our FB page and home page shortly. One of the main requirement is that you as a national federation accept to follow our common rules of tournament backgammon and contribute to maintain these following a standardized process. The rules are already translated to several languages.

This also means that all nations can participate in the team Championship in Gibraltar 10th-15th July 2018 if they are member of the World Backgammon Federation.

The Team Championship will become "World Team Championship" and the winning team will win the title "World Team Champions 2018". In 2018 the best European team will get the title European Team Champions.

In the individual event (triple elimination to 11 points) the winning person get the title WBGF individual champion. In 2018 the best European player will get the title European Champion.

All titles are defined by the World Backgammon Federation.
