As previously reported, Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov have agreed to play a rapid/blitz match in Valencia, Spain from 21-24 September. There is now an English language website for the event here.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of their first battle for the world chess championship crown.

It has now emerged that the two greats are hoping to arrange a series of matches in various cities around the world.

There are reports that Paris will be hosting another rapid/blitz match between the legendary pair from 11-13 December, and there may also be others in Moscow and New York (the cities that hosted their original matches).

The matches will raise money for the charity UNICEF.
