Stellar Field For New English Open
Snooker’s new English Open takes place in Manchester next month, featuring 128 players including ALL of the sport’s top 16 stars.
The world ranking tournament runs from October 10 to 16 at Event City and it’s the first of the new Home Nations series.
Ronnie O’Sullivan will be among the star names competing for the title and he will be playing his opening match on Tuesday October 11th. Tickets for that day are still available but selling fast.
And alongside the Rocket, the very best green baize kings on the planet have also entered the tournament, including World Champion Mark Selby, potting ace Judd Trump, legend John Higgins, Neil Robertson, Shaun Murphy and crowd favourite Jimmy White.
The English Open will be followed by events in Belfast, Glasgow and Cardiff in the Home Nations series, all televised by Eurosport. Any player winning all four events would bank a massive £1 million bonus.
A spokesman for World Snooker said: “We’re delighted that all of the top players have committed to the English Open as it’s a new event and we were keen to see the strongest field possible. It’s going to be a week of the highest quality snooker in Manchester.
“There will be eight tables in the venue for the early rounds so it’s an incredible chance for fans to see a multitude of the top stars for the price of a single ticket. Seats are going fast though so supporters must get them booked or risk missing out.”
All-day tickets start at just £20 and there’s also a special student offer with tickets priced at just £7.50. For details CLICK HERE
