European Cup

    Keywords: Tournament

The [ext] European Cup was a grand prix style competition organised by the European Go Federation. It was composed of a series of tournaments organised in EGF member countries. Tournaments paid a fee to be part of the tour. Depending on the amount they paid, the tournament would offer different numbers of points to competitors. The player who accumulated the highest number of points over the course of the tour was declared the winner of the European Cup. From 2011, only European Nationals could score points.

The points are distributed according to the tournament wallchart, so if 3 players are split on tiebreak by Nigiri, then so were the European Cup points.


The European Cup ran from 2004 to 2007 whereupon, it then merged together with the Pandanet Tour to become one event. Then in 2011, it returned to its original format. In 2013 it was cancelled, due to the introduction of the CEGO grand prix.
