The European Team Championship will be held from November 7 to 18 in Warsaw, where the Israel will, apparently, be represented by younger players.

The Israel Chess Federation does not have the financial ability to send the team in the main composition. The familiar "core" of the team will have the possibility to go to the tournament only if a private sponsor will be found. This was stated by the newly elected of the federation Moshe Slav in his report at a meeting.

Let us recall that the Israeli team is headed by Boris Gelfand, who has recently won the Tal Memorial.
