The National Chess Federation of the Philippines (NCFP) announced changes in the format of the Victory Central Mall National Open Grouping Chess Championships which will be held from July 2 to July 8 at the 4th floor of the Victory Central Mall in Caloocan City.
Instead of having three categories, Group A and B have been merged into an Open category with no rating requirements. (The official website of the NCFP did not provide enough details about the composition of teams.)
As a result, the prizes were combined as follows:
NCFP office: 381-7224
NCFP Executive & Events Director Willie Abalos: 0929-226620, 0929-390644, 0905-3269576
