What is a FOA Title?

You can obtain the FOA Title recognized by FIDE by playing FOA-rated games on FIDE Online Arena. This online title will appear in your profile card on the FIDE website.

Unlike over-the-board titles, the FOA titles do not differentiate by sex and apply to both women and men equally. The online titles are automatic: once the player reaches a certain rating and is able to maintain it for a required number of games, they are eligible for the online title.

To find out more about the eligibility requirements please check this page.
