The Sports Commission was Established in 1997, by General Assembly. The Sports Commission within RIF is responsible for publishing renju tournaments played all over the world. Tournaments are published in three periods during the year, January - May 15, May 16 - August and September - December. Publishing is done at least one month before the period starts.
Tournaments that will be calculated on the official RIF rating list are marked with "(Rated)". These tournaments are played with the official RIF renju rules and the time limit is at least 30 minutes per player. For more information contact the Sports Commission.
