Continued Recruitment of Supporting Membership and Change

Last May, we established the “Supporting Membership” program and have been recruiting members throughout the year. We have now decided to reduce the membership fee to 50,000 yen per year. We welcome applications from those who can support the operation of the federation financially. If you are interested in becoming a supporting member, please contact us at

Supporting Member System:

  • 50,000 yen/year. Multiple subscriptions are also accepted.
  • We accept applications not only as an individual but also as a group.
  • You can choose from the following items as the use of your support membership fee.
    (Priority will be given to the item(s) you specify, but we do not necessarily promise that the entire amount will be used for the specified purpose(s).)

    1. General operation of the Japan Chess Federation
    2. Training and strengthening of youth players
    3. Operational support for local clubs
    4. Dispatch of players and teams to overseas tournaments
    5. Chess popularization activities
  • The names of supporting members will be posted on the federation’s website (the number of units will not be posted, and if you wish to remain anonymous, your name will not be posted either).
  • We will report on the management of the federation about twice a year.
