MOSCOW, May 23 /TASS/. The International Chess Federation (FIDE) considers the NYC Mayor’s Office and Trump Tower to be the most likely venues for a match for the world chess title between Norwegian Magnus Carlsen and Russian chess player Sergey Karyakin, FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov told TASS.
"At present, we are looking for a venue. We have a list of possible places, including the NYC Mayor’s Office. We have sent a letter to billionaire Donald Trump with a request to allow holding the match in Trump Tower.
Ilyumzhinov said it would not be a problem for him to visit the United States.
A match for the world chess crown is to take place in New York on September 9-30 this year.
