Next World Chess Championship to be held in Asia: FIDE president

IANS  |  Moscow 

The next world championship will be held in an Asian country, the World Chess Federation (FIDE) President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov said on Thursday.

"There are two candidates, but I cannot name them. (The next host) will be announced at FIDE's presidential council next spring. However, representatives of organising committees that want to host the match in 2018 were in New York today," Ilyumzhinov said, reports Tass.

Norway's Magnus Carlsen retained his world chess championship crown for the third time, defeating Russia's Sergey Karjakin in the tie-break 3-1 (total score 9-7) on Wednesday in New York.

Their overall score after 12 games played was tied at 6-6 and both grandmasters played a series of tie-break games to determine the new world champion.
