Women's World Chess Championship Match Location Announced

I just saw this at The Week in Chess website - but there may be a problem? Here is the pertinent part of the press release regarding the Women's Championship Match location between GM Hou Yifan of China and GM Koneru Humpy of India. Here is the link to The Week in Chess so you can read the particulars:

FIDE is further pleased to announce that the Women's World Chess Championship Match between Women World Champion Hou Yifan from China and the Challenger Humpy Koneru from India, will be held in Tirana, Albania in November 2011 for a prize fund of 200,000 euros.

One Note: The Men's Championship has a prize fund of $2.55 million USD compared to the Women's Championship prize fund of $200K Euros. Is it just me, or does this really, really suck?
