ISU Letter Recieved by Federations

ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2011
Ladies and Gentlemen,
We refer to our Statement released today advising that the 2011 ISU World Figure Skating Championships cannot be held in Japan.
Some Figure Skating Members have spontaneously informed us that they would be available to host this Championships if not held in Japan. Some other Members may now also be interested and available to host this Event.
Attached please find the Questionnaire for applications for ISU Championships that we ask the interested Members to submit to the ISU Secretariat by e-mail or fax latest by Tuesday evening (Swiss time), March 22, 2011.
Some details might not yet be available so we ask you to complete the questionnaire with all information available at this time. If necessary, it can then subsequently be completed as soon as possible.
However, when returning the questionnaire we kindly ask you to confirm in your cover note that you would be able to comply with the following key conditions:
1. Available dates during April/May starting, if possible, with the week of April 18, 2011 onwards
2. Availability of an ice rink/arena with a minimum spectators capacity of 8000 seats.  The arena must be available from the Thursday early morning through Sunday late evening of the following week.
3. Availability of a practice rink from Friday early morning through Friday late evening of the following week.
4. Availability of about 700 hotel rooms.
5. A TV production for the entire Event and availability of the signal free of charge to the ISU and its TV right holders.
Depending on the applications received, the ISU will be in touch with the Members concerned for all necessary follow-up questions and clarifications and the ISU Council is expected to take a decision a few days after March 22, 2011.
We thank you for your cooperation.
With kind regards
Fredi Schmid 
ISU Director General
