Press release by FIDE

Dear Member Federations and chess organizers: 

The 2022 World Chess Olympiad in Minsk (Belarus), as well as a number of side events, are at risk after the current organizers failed to comply with their obligations. At the moment, FIDE is expecting the current Organizing Committee to confirm their final position regarding their organizational and financial duties. 

Unless the Minsk organizers meet their obligations in the upcoming days, FIDE will be forced to change the hosting country for the 2022 World Chess Olympiad and related events. In that eventuality, FIDE would launch a call for bids on September 7 for the right to host the following events:
