The opening ceremony of the 3rd stage of the FIDE Grand Prix 2014/15 series has taken place in the center of the Georgian capital, near the Freedom square. FIDE CEO Geoffrey Borg, who is responsible for the whole series, thanked the Georgian Chess Federation and its President Giorgi Giorgadze for their stepping in last November to host the event. This stage had initially been scheduled to take place in Tehran, but then it was cancelled and the organisers had to search for another location.

For the drawing of lots, the players were collecting sport shirts with numbers printed on the back of each.

Teimour Radjabov got the only 'non-football' number.

Mamedyarov got number 10. The legendary David Kipiani used to play in a football shirt with this number.

The first round will begin tomorrow, on February 15th, at 11:00 GMT.
