  whiteshark: "We expect a bidding process"

"It seems FIDE is trying to fix a mistake by making another mistake."

"I wonder what Mr Ilyumzhinov means by "official". We sent letters, and we spoke to them. Just before Magnus and I went to New York, I was actually in Athens [at the FIDE office – CV] with my lawyer and there I talked to FIDE representatives, for example Georgios Makropoulos and Israel Gelfer. We made it very clear that we are not happy with the procedure. We were very surprised when FIDE made an agreement with Chennai right after the Candidates' Tournament. Of course they have not received a bid other than Chennai yet, because there hasn't been a bidding process! There should be."

-Espen Agdestein

May-03-13  sovesveis: Seems like there are actually bids without FIDE starting the process.

This article in the norwegian newspaper VG claims that Paris are bidding for hosting the match. The prize money alone in the bid is app. 2,5 mill euros with an additionally of 850k euros. The newspaper says that this is a total of 1,2 mill euros more than what Chennai are paying in the preliminary agreement.
