The Mitropacup started yesterday on the arrival day with a “Welcome Dinner” in the evening and the captains meeting. Kurt Jungwirth mentioned the history of the Mitropacup that was invented from Austrian Chess Federation. The first Mitropacup was held 1975 in Innsbruck, Tirol. This year the Mitropacup came back to Tirol. The 34th Event is held in Mayrhofen/Zillertal. We show you some impressions fromt the arrival day in our photogalery.

Today was the deadline for the registration of the team compositions. All the federations have send their registrations in time and the chief arbiter Manfred Mussnig has published already the teams on Chess-Results. Notice that France could not nominate a team in the women section. Austria will replace them with a second team.
