Staged in Las Vegas, the tournament commences on Sunday 17th December and concludes on Friday 22nd December.
It is an open invitation. Therefore not all nominations may be accepted.
Furthermore only nominations submitted by bona fide national associations will be considered; preference will be given to Blue Badge and Blue Badge in Progress Umpires.
Full hospitality will be provided in a twin room from dinner on Saturday 16th December to breakfast on Monday 23rd December.
All invited umpires must organize their own transport to Las Vegas as well as travel and medical insurance. In addition, all invited umpires are responsible for early arrival and late departure.
Should a nominated umpire require a visa, kindly send relevant details when submitting the nomination (full name as in passport, date of birth, place of birth, passport number, expiry date of passport). All costs relating to visa applications are at the responsibility of the applicant; the issuance of a visa is entirely at the discretion of the relevant embassy or consulate.
