The World Chess Championship 2008 (WCC 2008) will take place in the second half of the year 2008 (most probably in September-October). The World Chess Championship 2008 will be a match, not a tournament.

This match should take place in the 3rd quarter of 2008. The Updated List of Qualifiers for the World Cup 2007 is available at FIDE site, dated 9/30/2007.
