Robin Park Arena and Sports Centre in Wigan will once again host many of snooker’s top names in December, with FREE entry for fans.
The qualifying rounds of the German Masters world ranking event will run from December 17 to 20, followed by the World Seniors Championship qualifiers on December 21 and 22.
The same events were staged in Wigan last season, with the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, Jimmy White, Judd Trump and Mark Selby in action.
Once again World Snooker will be offering free access to the arena for fans.
A spokesman for World Snooker said: “We are delighted to bring the qualifying rounds of two tournaments back to Robin Park in Wigan. It’s a fantastic opportunity for fans in the area to see top class sporting action for free.
“We saw a good level of support last year and we hope to see even more people coming to the venue this time to see the world’s best players live.”
The draw and format for both events will be announced soon.
