The word "interest" has 3 options: International, National and local, depending by the audience of the chess event. If the players that can participate in at least one of the sections of your event are from a foreign country, then your event is "international". In case the players that can join the event are restricted to players of a given federation/country, then the event is "national". The event is "local" if the participation is limited to players belonging to a limited area of a given federation/country (club, province, region,...). Please make sure to assign the correct "interest" flag to your event because the misuse may cause the user to be banned.
