WST will stage a tournament at the Telford International Centre for the first time in 14 years in 2024 with the Players Championship, and tickets are ON SALE NOW.

The event will run from February 19th to 25th in 2024, featuring the top 16 players from the 2023/24 season one-year ranking list.


Tickets start at just £25, and fans have the option of an Event Pass to see every session of the seven-day tournament for just £270.

The last event hosted in Telford was the UK Championship, which ran from 2007 until 2010 in the town. In the last of those finals, John Higgins scored a dramatic 10-9 victory over Mark Williams.

Now the Players Championship goes to the Shropshire venue for the first time. A spokesman for WST said: “We are thrilled to be heading back to the Telford International Centre as it proved an excellent venue for the fans and players when we staged events there in the past. We hope to see the arena packed out as fans have the opportunity to see the world’s best and this will be a tournament of the highest quality.

“From the start of the 2023/24 season, players will be battling to climb the one-year ranking list, and only the best 16 will qualify for the Players Championship, so it will be an outstanding field.”

Shaun Murphy won the title in 2023, beating Ali Carter 10-4 in the final in Wolverhampton. All matches are best of 11 frames, up until the final on Sunday February 25th which is best of 19. The event will be televised live by ITV, as well as a range of broadcasters worldwide.
