In response to the numerous questions from potential organizers of the WCCM, FIDE would like to state the following:

1. The WCCM regulations are currently being developed. They allow to hold the match in multiple cities if this promotes chess and does not present excessive logistical problems for the WCCM participants.

2. The recommended WCCM prize fund will be at least 2 million Euros.

3. The winning bid will be selected on a competitive basis according to a transparent procedure that will involve a reliable auditing company.
