Immediately after the completion of a game both players have to take part in post game press conferences, of not more than 20 minutes duration. The players must be present at all official functions during the match including official receptions, the opening ceremony and the closing ceremony. All of this will be broadcast live to the worldwide audience of chess fans.

It is interesting to note that the FIDE regulations require the players to to wear suits during the playing session. Players are allowed to wear branding of their personal sponsors only if these are not in conflict with the FWCM sponsors.

Indeed, chess is becoming a media sport and it is great that the forthcoming World Chess match is going to be a showcase of not just great chess, but two handsome and stylish sports icons of our times. We cannot wait enough! -- Rajat Khanna
