USCF is seeking bids for the 2007 US Championship and 2007 US Women's Championship. These events have been combined in recent years and sponsored and conducted by America's Foundation for Chess (AF4C), but by mutual agreement between that organization and USCF, AF4C will not run them this year.

Bidders may either propose the combined format used by AF4C (Championship and Women's Championship combined), or offer to sponsor either event separately. In recent years the total prize fund of the combined Championships has been about $250,000, of which the Women's Championship obtained about $40,000.

Those interested in bidding should contact Executive Director Bill Hall at (931) 787-1234 or [email protected]. There is no bidding deadline, as USCF reserves the right to accept a bid at any time.
