The Singapore Chess Federation (Abbreviation: SCF) is the principal authority over all chess events in Singapore, and was founded in 1949. Its promotion of the game has caused participation in its youth and interschool events, among others, to jump from 517 in 1999 to over 1300 in 2016. As a result, Singapore has one of the highest number of chess players in schools per capita in Asia. The Federation is affiliated to the world governing body, FIDE, and is part of the ASEAN Chess Confederation and the Asian Chess Federation.[1]

The current President is Christopher Lim whose tenure runs 2019-2021.
