At the current FIDE Presidential Board meeting in Chengdu, Berlin has been accepted to host the world rapid and blitz championships. The tournament will run from 9 to 15 October, according to the FIDE website.

It is already clear that the dates clash with several other events. In particular, there is an overlap with Millionaire Chess, for which Hikaru Nakamura and Wesley So have both signed up, and also with Chess Train (the traditional chess event on board a train) and the Bundesliga.

We would remind you that the reigning world champion in rapid and blitz, as well as classical chess, is Magnus Carlsen.
