New York it is

After quite a delay, Agon has confirmed that the 2016 World Championship Match will be held in New York, from the 11th to the 30th of November. The venue will be the South Street Seaport, which is a tourist area in lower Manhattan. The match will consist of 12 games, following the now common format of 2 games, rest day, 2 games etc, with rest days between the last two games. At this stage the match sponsors have yet to be announced but it seems that the Carlsen and Karjakin camps are happy with the arrangements.
