Russian grandmaster Ian Nepomniachtchi and Norwegian 16th world champion Magnus Carlsen have confirmed their participation in the World Cup, which will take place in Baku from July 30 to August 24, 2023, according to the official website of the International Chess Federation (FIDE).

It was previously reported that both grandmasters will play in the new Global Chess League (GCL) team tournament in Dubai, which will take place from June 21 to July 2.

Earlier, Russian chess player Sergey Karyakin received an invitation to the tournament, but said he refuses to participate because he does not want to play without the Russian flag and anthem.

The Norwegian chess player leads the FIDE ranking, while Nepomniachtchi ranks fourth.
