From all.sport: "GAISF welcomed publication of the launch plan for its .sport Community initiative by the Internet governance body ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). Following completion of its review, publication of the plan on the ICANN website constitutes formal recognition of acceptance, and sets in motion a timetable of events.
As part of the pre-launch program, a select group of Ambassador websites will go live during Summer 2018, becoming among the first ever at .sport. A consolidated launch period will run from September 4 to November 6, 2018 and, following a quiet period, General Availability will begin on January 8, 2019. Premium pricing applies during the consolidated launch period. Standard pricing will apply starting with General Availability.
The .sport extension is by and for the community. As a community extension .sport has made membership in the community an eligibility requirement for registering a .sport domain. During the consolidated launch period, these include: federations, sport organizations and governing bodies; clubs and teams; cities and public authorities; athletes and practitioners; sport organizers, event sponsors, sport brands and corporate partners; sport media; and sport facilities."
