Llandudno welcomes World Snookers Players Championship

Snooker’s elite stars will return to Venue Cymru in Llandudno this March for the Players Championship.

Venue Cymru has hosted the World Grand Prix for the last two seasons and will now stage the Players Championship for the first time.

The world ranking tournament runs from March 6th to 12th and will feature 16 of the best players on the planet.

Tickets are on sale now and start at just £15 representing fantastic value to see live sport at the highest level.

The tournament will feature 16 players from a unique ranking list which runs from the start of the current season until the Gibraltar Open, which finishes on March 5th.

The top 16 on that list will be eligible to compete for the massive £125,000 top prize in Llandudno.

Neil Robertson, Shaun Murphy, Stuart Bingham and John Higgins are currently among the star names inside that top 16. Mark Allen won the Players Championship last season by beating Ricky Walden in the final.

The event will receive extensive free-to-air television coverage from ITV4.

A spokesman for World Snooker said: “We are delighted to be bringing the Players Championship to Venue Cymru in Llandudno for the first time. Having held the World Grand Prix there we are fully aware of the fantastic atmosphere that the fans generate inside the arena and what a superb location it is. Based on our previous sales we strongly urge supporters to get their tickets booked now.

“Over the next six months, players will be battling for every pound to try to gain one of those 16 spots in Llandudno. It promises to be an extremely strong field and it will be a week of the highest quality and most exciting action on the green baize.”
