The UK Championship, sponsored by Betway, is one of snooker’s most historic and prestigious tournaments. The 2020 event will run from November 23 to December 6. The first round will be in Milton Keynes from November 23 to 26, followed by the last 64 onwards at the York Barbican from November 28 to December 6.

Tickets are available now and fans must book fast because certain sessions are already sold out – for details click here

The decision as to whether an audience will be allowed at the Barbican has not yet been made. WST will inform ticketholders as soon as plans have been finalised.

It is considered the second biggest ranking event, after the World Championship, and those two tournaments make up snooker’s Triple Crown along with the Masters.

The UK Championship was first staged in 1977 and has been won by virtually all of snooker’s great names.

Since 2011 it has been staged at the York Barbican, and attracts huge crowds throughout. In 2019, Ding Junhui won the title for the third time by beating Stephen Maguire 10-6 in the final.
