The Malaysian Chess Championship is scheduled from 16th March to 20th March 2016 at Dewan University College Sabah Foundation, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

(I) Born in the state, (II) Residing in the state, (III) Working / Studying in the state

Upon fulfilling the criteria listed above and agree to represent the state, the player will sign the Player's Registration Form which means the Player can only represent on the agreed state for the Calendar Year. This means the player cannot represent other state in MCF national-level rated events e.g. Merdeka Team Championship, Inter-State Team Championship, MSSM and etc in the same Calendar Year. This is a MCF requirement since 2013 to avoid other state from buying players by offering more incentives or prevent players from state-hopping.
