.club is a proposed new gTLD in ICANN's new gTLD program. The public applicant, .CLUB Domains LLC, filed their application on the first possible day, January, 12, 2012.[1]

The .club domain appears to be a unrestricted gTLD intended for use by the many professional and amateur clubs found around the world. It remains unknown whether there are other entities applying to run a possible .club TLD.

.CLUB Domains LLC has publicly stated that they have secured funding for their application and the potential auction that may ensue, and also that they have no intention of negotiating with any other company applying for .club but intend to win the auction. Apparently, they have already been approached by other .club applicants and have decided the best way to secure the domain is in open auction.[2]
