10 September 2016

The Commission for World Championships and Olympiads does not approve the proposal of RCF to allow the commercial matches for the World Championship title. The RCF is invited to come up with the opinion of the majority of the top players, and if they will support this proposal, it is going to be discussed on the FIDE Congress next year.

We'd like to thank all those 1200+ chess people who signed ACP petition - your opinion was heard and played an important role in the discussions.

ACP - together we are stronger!
