The Russian Superfinal of the 69th Championship for men and 66th Championship for women will take place in October 2016 in Novosibirsk.
The Russian Chess Federation and Timchenko Foundation have maintained an open call of interest from 26th February to 25th March to accept applications from regional chess federations and local museums.
The commission has received three proposals – from Tula State Museum of Weapons, Novosibirsk State Museum of Local History and Art Museum of Novokuznetsk. Novosibirsk was chosen as the host of the Superfinal.
The Russian Championship Superfinal 2016 will be the sixth event organized within the project “Chess in Museums.” It all started with a 2012 World Championship Match between Viswanathan Anand and Boris Gelfand in Tretyakov Gallery, which was a huge success opening the doors for similar activities.
