The qualifying round has already taken place and there will be a fantastic field of the world’s top stars heading to Germany for the final stages.
Ronnie O’Sullivan and John Higgins will both be in Fürth
World Champion Mark Selby, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump and Neil Robertson all had their first round matches held over so they will be among the line-up in Fürth. And many more top names came through the qualifying round including John Higgins, Shaun Murphy, Kyren Wilson and Jack Lisowski.
The popular Stadthalle venue, in the beautiful city of Fürth, close to Nuremberg, has welcomed thousands of snooker fans over the years and hosted the Paul Hunter Classic from 2007 to 2019, when Barry Hawkins won the final edition of the tournament.
The European Masters will form part of the eight-event BetVictor Snooker Series, from which the player earning the most prize money will snap up a huge £150,000 bonus.
Last year saw World Champion Mark Selby lift the trophy aloft after beating Martin Gould 9-8 in a thrilling final. More of the same is expected in 2022, when the finest players on the planet head to Fürth.
All matches in Fürth up to and including the quarter-finals will be played over the best of nine frames, with best of 11 frame semi-finals and a best of 17 frame final.
