Ding Liren gets official invitation to take part in FIDE World Championship match 2023

Grandmaster Ding Liren received this weekend the official invitation to take part in the FIDE World Championship match 2023, after the current World Champion Magnus Carlsen formally confirmed, in writing, that he gives up his right to take part in the match and defend his title. 

FIDE is currently negotiating with two potential hosting cities for the World Championship 2022. Once one of these proposals is approved, and the location, prize fund, and exact dates are fixed, Ian Nepomniachtchi and Ding Liren will receive the contract for the match.
