For the attention of Rafael Amoedo
President Brazilian Bridge Federation

Dear Rafael

New Eligibility Regulations and Bona Fide Residence Criteria have been agreed by the WBF at recent meetings and are attached herewith.

Please also be aware of the regulations with regard to Eligibility to participate in the Bermuda Bowl and Venice Cup since only NBOs participating in the World Bridge Games with at least one pair will be eligible to qualify for these events.

Please go to http://www.worldbridge.org/rules-regulations/eligibility-regulations/ to check this regulation in detail. You will also find the regulations regarding the age criteria for the Senior and Youth events on that page.

I would also like to take the opportunity of reminding you to check the Anti-Doping Regulations at: http://www.worldbridge.org/rules-regulations/anti-doping-regulations/ - please make sure that players participating in the 2020 World Bridge Games are fully aware of these and of the latest Prohibited List from WADA which came into force on 1st January 2020 (https://www.wada-ama.org/en/resources/science-medicine/prohibited-list-documents).
