FIDE extends the deadline for bids to organize the FIDE Women’s Grand Prix 2019-2020.

FIDE received a number of requests from the organizers interested to hold the Women’s Grand Prix 2019-2020 events. Some of them asked FIDE to extend the deadline for the formal bids in order to find additional sponsors and receive government support. Considering the best conditions for the participants as its priority, FIDE has decided to extend the deadline for the bids until February 26, 2019.

The final decision on the venues will be taken at the meeting of the FIDE Presidential Board Meeting on March 5-6, 2019.
