    (Doesn't say how much they're putting in it!)

    FIDE has also announced, and called for bids for, a new WC qualifier to be called the "FIDE Grand Swiss":

    I don't believe details have been confirmed yet. I should have notes as to what options were on the table at the meeting last year, but haven't found them yet.

    It's pretty safe to assume the Commonwealth Champs will always be on. India will run it if nobody else can. How much notice of the details is possible is another matter.

    Once I get an invitation I will always post it on this forum in the Overseas Tournaments section.

    Some interesting news on the FIDE website - Grand Swiss has a venue (Isle of Man) and dates, some details of sort of partnership with FIFA to add chess to football academies, and another push to have chess at the Olympics, Paris 2024 this time, which would mark the centenary of FIDE being founded in France.
