World Chess Championship

South Street Seaport
Pier 17, Fulton and Front Streets
Manhattan, NY 10038


Twelve rounds and nearly three weeks of wall-to-wall chess action come to South Street Seaport. An expected audience of 1 billion will watch online, but you can see Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin compete to capture the king—and a million-dollar purse—right before your eyes. This marks the first time in more than 20 years the globe’s biggest chess competition has come to New York City.
