A total of thirty-two (32) overseas International Umpires will be invited.  Hospitality in a double room sharing with another umpire starts from lunch on 6th October through to breakfast on 14th October.  The nominees, or their Associations, are responsible for all related international travel costs to Astana, Kazakhstan and insurance costs.  Each Umpire will receive an honorarium in accordance with ATTU guidelines.
