Tickets are on sale for snooker’s most important invitation tournament and fans are strongly urged to book fast, following record sales last season. The 2017 event will run from January 15-22.
The prestigious tournament brings together the top 16 players in the world rankings to battle for a famous trophy which has been contested every year since 1975.
The BBC-televised event was won last time by crowd favourite Ronnie O’Sullivan, who thrashed Barry Hawkins 10-1 in the final to win the title for the sixth time, equalling the record set by Stephen Hendry.
Shaun Murphy, Neil Robertson, Ding Junhui and Mark Selby have also won the tournament in recent years.
World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: “The Dafabet Masters is a unique and special event because it’s an elite field of the very best players. Every match is a clash of the sport’s titans.
“It’s one table in the arena from the start and that makes for a sensational atmosphere. The tournament has found a home at Alexandra Palace since we moved there in 2011, it is a venue much loved by fans and players alike, and that was proven last season when we saw record crowds and ticket sales.
“Anyone who wants to see the best players on the planet playing on the big stage must book tickets early or risk missing out.”
