The subscription ticket costs more than the average monthly wage

There will be no free entry for spectators of the Carlsen - Anand match in Sochi: the single ticket will cost 3500 Russian rubles (about 65, according to the current rate of exchange). The subscription ticket (for the whole duration) will cost ten times more, although it's unclear whether it's more beneficial or not because the match can be shorter than 12 games, as happened in Chennai.

This is very unusual for Russia where events like this one are normally free-of-charge for spectators. Meanwhile, the average salary in Sochi is about 30000 rubles (around 550) per month, according to different sources. This can make one suppose that the audience will consist of special guests rather than of ordinary chess fans.

The World Championship match will take place in Sochi from November 8th to November 27th, 2014.
