Welcome to the official website of IBCA
FIDE (Federation Internationale Des Echecs) is the apex body for chess amongst the sighted. Similarly the International Braille Chess Association (IBCA) is the apex body of chess for the blind and is in turn affiliated to FIDE. The main purpose of IBCA is to promote chess for the visually challenged across the globe. Now, it has grown to such an extent that it has over 71 member countries from all continents, starting from Europe to more recent South Africa, Latin America and Asia.
