Matchroom's Spring Summer Line Up

Posted by HLD 23 FEBRUARY 2021

The New Matchroom Schedule Hosts an Incredible Sporting Line Up

New dates have now been released for the World Pool Masters and World Pool Championship in May, followed by the 2021 World Cup of Pool taking place in England this June, bringing the live sporting action back into our world.

The professional season will get underway with the brand-new Predator Championship League Pool from March 22-29 and a blockbuster spring schedule will conclude with the return of the World Cup of Pool in early June.

The world's top 128 players will go head to head for the return of the World Pool Championship in the Matchroom Stable at Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes from Monday, May 10th until Friday, May 14th. With full global TV coverage and an increased money prize, this will not be one to miss.

The World Pool Masters will be live from Gibraltar the following week, starting on Saturday, May 22nd, and concluding on Tuesday, May 25th. Matchroom Pool's World Ranking will resume with the World Pool Masters and after a lockdown of competition in 2020 this year's rankings could be anyone's game.

 

What is the difference between World Pool Championship and World Pool Masters?

Whilst both competitions are major 9-ball pool events, there are some keys differences.

The World Pool Championship is held by Matchroom Multi Sport in Partnership with the WPA, open to men and women from all over the world, with 128 players set for 2021. This makes it one of the biggest and most diverse events in pool, plus the prize money is seriously worth playing for.

The World Pool Masters brings together 24 of the finest pool players from around the world to go against each other in knock-out rounds for a $100,000 prize fund.

 

 

Emily Frazer, Managing Director of Matchroom Multi Sport, said: "Despite the ever-changing climate which we are all facing, it is vital that we give as many of the top players from across the globe the opportunity to participate in our televised, top-tier events like the World Pool Championship and World Pool Masters, both of which will count towards the Matchroom Pool World Rankings this year. In delaying these events by one month, we are giving every opportunity to players to participate in these events.

"We are making a significant push on the Matchroom Pool World Rankings which we hope will evolve even more so that come 2022 we can look to increase the number of spots set aside to the highest-ranked male and female players, giving players an equal chance to earn a position in the rankings and places in Matchroom events."

"We are keen to keep players fully up to date on the Matchroom schedule of events so that they can train and prepare properly, especially during these difficult times where live professional tournaments have unfortunately come to a halt."

"We appreciate date changes are not ideal and fans are excited for the return of live professional pool, however, the safety of players, staff, and all those involved in our events is paramount to us and it is important to take each day as it comes and deliver as best we can, while always keeping faith and hope in welcoming live fans back to our arenas should we be able to!"
