November 11, 2016 at South Street Seaport, Manhattan, NYC in New York.


The World Chess Championship Match 2016, held from 11 to 30 November, will be contested by 25 year old reigning champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway and his challenger, 26 year old Sergey Karjakin of Russia — and this is the first time that two players who have come of age in the computer era are fighting for the title and represent a generational shift in chess.

The contest consists of 12 games, with every move avidly followed and analyzed by a global audience of hundreds of millions of chess fans. To win, a player must reach a score of 6.5 points. After 12 rounds, if the score is even, there will be tie-breaks.

This is going to be a trully cultural event with famous grandmasters and celebrity guests and will happen at the Seaport District, New York City’s popular neighborhood which is located on the East River in Lower Manhattan with unparalleled views of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Travel+Leisure recently named the Seaport the 22nd most visited tourist attraction in the world. Adjacent to the Financial District, the Seaport is only minutes-walk from Wall Street.

The Match arena is being built within the historic Fulton Market building, and will feature a dedicated Spectator and VIP Lounges with panoramic view of the Brooklyn Bridge, retail space, café, TV studios and much more.
