    It is a Francophone tournament, but the IAs on duty do speak English, and speaking French is not a requirement to enter the tournament. The sole requirement being that your FIDE Country code appears on this list https://aidef.fide.com/spip.php?article27 .

    The Civil Aviation Minister of Morocco has forbidden all landings in his country until at least December 31st 2021. This has forced the postponement of this tournament to July 1st 2022 (Arrival) to July 10th (Departure) with rounds from July 2nd to July 9th.
