World Cup of Pool returning to London

AFTER A HIATUS in 2016, the World Cup of Pool returns to London as the iconic York Hall once again plays host to the prestigious pairs event from 13th to 18th June. The East London venue has a storied pool history having staged the Mosconi Cup on eight occasions as well as the World Cup in 2013 and 2015.

This will be the 11th running of the World Cup of Pool and features 32 two-player teams from around the world battling it out for a $250,000 prize fund. The defending champions are Chinese Taipei – Ko Pin Yi and Chang Yu Lung – who took the title in a thrilling battle against England B in September 2015.

The event will be a gathering of some of the greatest players in the world, and there are a host of genuine contenders for the coveted title, including two sides from the host nation.

Commencing on Tuesday 13th and culminating in the final on the evening of Sunday 18th, the event will be played to a single elimination format over six days with two sessions a day. There are 31 matches in total.

Tickets will be on sale shortly at www.matchroompool.com and will be priced at £10.00 per evening session (Tuesday to Sunday) and £8.00 per weekend afternoon session. Tuesday to Friday afternoons are free. A season ticket covering all sessions is priced at £60.00.
