On Friday November 20, 2009, the Vice President of the Chess Federation of Armenia, GM Smbat Lputian together with Geoffrey Borg, President of Global Chess and Commercial Director of FIDE, signed the contract for Armenia to host a leg in the current cycle of the FIDE Women’s Grand Prix. The event will be held in the scenic town of Jermuk, Armenia from June 23 – July 5, 2010. This is the same locale which successfully hosted the 5th Men’s Grand Prix event in the summer of 2009. Incidentally, IMs Elina Danielian and Lilit Mkrtchian represent Armenia in the Grand Prix.

The signing of the contract took place at the brand new headquarters of the Chess Academy of Armenia, a spacious, newly renovated building in the center of Yerevan. The Academy is perfectly outfitted to host all kinds of chess events: it is home to over a dozen classrooms, several administrative offices, one small and one large auditorium (the large auditorium can seat 200 chess games simultaneously), a kitchen and cafeteria, and about two dozen rooms for lodging, each comfortably and tastefully furnished. The already active Armenian federation is all the more ready to host events with this added infrastructure now built and in use, and we look forward to even more events being held in the chess-loving country of Armenia.
