Become a member of the Federation

Why become a member ?

By becoming a member, you get access to all the services provided by the Federation (getting news from the Federation, getting a ranking, possibility to play Go tournaments, teaching courses, etc.) and moreover you contribute also to the development of Go (material, advertising, organisation of activities...).

How become a member ?

You simply become a member of the Federation if you're also a member of an affiliated Belgian Go club.
You need to pay the membership fee of the Federation + the membership fees of the local club (if any) and get registered.
Please ask your club president.

Membership fee amount

The go club asks for a membership fee, of which a part is your membership fee for the Belgian Go Federation, the other part being a specific fee for the club (varying from one club to another, between 0€ to 10€, usually around 5 €).
Each year, the amount of the membership fee is decided at the Annual General Meeting.

Since 2018, the membership fee of the BGF is 20 EUR
10 EUR under 18 years old

It is possible to become a member of the Federation while not being a member of a Belgian go club. Then you have to pay the membership fee (20 € for 2020 - 10 € if > 18 years old) + a small Federal fee (10 €) onto the BGF account IBAN : BE24-7755-9621-2238 BIC (SWIFT code): GKCCBEBB.
