The Portugal Chess Federation website published an official announcement which states the 3rd stage of the FIDE Grand Prix which had to take place from April 17th to May 1st won't be held in Lisbon: "Unfortunately, for the reasons that did not depend on the Portuguese Chess Federation and the Portuguese Government, the organization of the event will change the location, with the approval of FIDE.”

Chessdom specifies: "AGON failed to secure the sponsorship and FIDE is looking into alternatives and will clarify officially the situation about the Grand Prix in the following few days.

FIDE is expected to maintain the calendar and hold the event as planned from 17th April to 1st May. An agreement with the host from Switzerland should be announced soon."
