128 of the world’s best snooker players will descend upon the Welsh capital from 10th-16th February to compete in the 2020 ManbetX Welsh Open. Now entering its 28th year, this is snooker’s longest running world ranking event, other than the World and UK Championships.
The ManbetX Welsh Open is also the last of the 2019-20 Home Nations series, with snooker’s top stars battling for prestigious titles. Last year’s weeklong championship saw ‘The Thunder from Down Under’ Neil Robertson beat Stuart Bingham 9-7 in a thrilling final match, claiming the £70,000 winner’s cheque. The championship has also been won by other snooker greats including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Selby, John Higgins and Wales’ very own Mark Williams.
Players will once again be battling for the coveted Ray Reardon Trophy in what is sure to be a nail-biting championship. Organisers have urged fans to buy tickets early as they are expected to sell out fast. Tickets range from £12.50 for an evening ticket to £177.50 for an Event Pass, which entitles you to entry to every session of the tournament.
Please visit the Motorpoint Arena website for more information and to purchase your tickets.
