Sofia may host next world chess championship

Date: 29.10.2005

Bulgaria may be the next host of the world chess championship, it appeared upon the arrival of the President of the International Chess Federation Kirsan Ilyumzhinov in Sofia.

I am glad to be in the smartest country in the world, Ilyumzhinov said in Sofia. In his words it is still not clear where the next championship will be, but Ilyumzhinov said that it is very possible that Bulgaria's capital may be the next host city.

Over last years Bulgaria conquered three chess tops. Vesselin Topalov won the prestigious title on October 14. Last year Bulgarian Antoaneta Stefanova became the World Chess Queen.
