MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. The next World Chess Championship will be held in an Asian country, President of the World Chess Federation (FIDE) Kirsan Ilyumzhinov told TASS 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 organizing committees that want to host the match in 2018 were in New York today," Ilyumzhinov said.
