The EUROTOUR goes live in 2022

1st November 2021

2022 SEES THE Eurotour going out live to a global TV audience with all six events scheduled for distribution. Broadcasting the semi-finals and finals from each event will provide major coverage from a tour that is starting its 31st year.

The Eurotour finals will now be played on a Monday instead of the previous Saturdays, to keep the programming away from congested weekend sports schedules.

David Morris, president of EPBF’s commercial arm IBPF commented, “The Eurotour deserves to be on TV and available to a wider audience.

“It’s something that has been in the pipeline, but now it’s a reality.

We found that when playing the final at the weekend, we were competing with almost every major sport for airtime, so moving our finals to a Monday made perfect sense.

“We’re also working with Luke Riches, formerly of Matchroom Sport who will be joining us on the TV project. With the events now in place and the best broadcasters of Billiards in Kozoom Multimedia on board, Luke brings vast experience and knowledge to an already established set-up and we very much look forward to working with him,” said David Morris.

Luke Riches said, “It is very exciting to see the Eurotour make the move into live TV broadcast. The tour is packed with the greatest players in the world and the opportunity for them to showcase their considerable talents on a new platform can only be good for the game.

“There’s a great team in place at the EPBF, working tirelessly to make this a success, and it is a tremendous honour for me to be joining them to work on this project.”

The Eurotour was established in 1992 and has been the flagship of the EPBF since the very first day. Paying out more that €6 million in prize money, it has become the most successful 9-ball tour in the world, boasting some of the best players on the planet.

Entering its 31st year, the EPBF President Gre Leenders said “The tour started with TV productions back in 1992 and we have made many live and postproduced events in recent years but it is excellent to now have a steady stream of live events available to millions. Moving the days and using the weekends for the early rounds will also help some athletes to attend without too much time away in the week days”

Plans are already underway for the first event in February 2022 and all information as to where it will be broadcast, we’ll be publishing in due course.

For more information and scheduled dates, check out the EPBF website or contact the EPBF press office at press@epbf.com

Cazoo To Donate To Jessie May Throughout World Snooker Tour

Cazoo pledge up to £25,000

Cazoo, the UK’s leading online car retailer, which makes buying and selling a car as simple and seamless as ordering any other product online, has announced that it will donate £100 to charity for every century break made during a range of events during the 2021/22 World Snooker Tour, starting with the Cazoo UK Championship.

The ‘Cazoo Century’ initiative could raise up to £25,000 for WST’s charity Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home, a Bristol-based charity providing nursing care at home for children and young people with life limiting conditions who are not expected to live beyond the age of 19.

The donations will start at the Cazoo UK Championship in York, one of the sport’s elite Triple Crown events, which starts on Tuesday this week and runs until December 5th.

The £100 per century pledge will continue at the Cazoo World Grand Prix in December, the Cazoo Masters in January, the Cazoo Players Championship in February and the Cazoo Tour Championship which starts in March.

The ‘Cazoo Century’ initiative was launched last season when Cazoo sponsored two snooker events, raising £5,300 for Jessie May which was donated in March this year.

Cazoo, who earlier this year signed a multi-year deal with WST as the main sponsor of these prestigious snooker events, also run similar goal related charitable initiatives through their Premier League football team sponsorships of Everton and Aston Villa.

Cazoo owns and fully reconditions its cars before offering them online for either home delivery or collection in as little as 72 hours. And it also buys cars directly from consumers, offering a guaranteed price with the option of either home pickup or drop-off at one of its locations with same day funds transfer.

Cazoo is one of Europe’s fastest growing businesses, pioneering the shift to online car buying and selling and has sold over 40,000 cars online since its launch in the UK less than 2 years ago as consumers have embraced the selection, value, transparency and convenience of buying used cars entirely online.

Alex Chesterman OBE, Founder & CEO of Cazoo said, “We are absolutely delighted by the chance to support Jessie May and the incredible work they do for children and their families. We will be watching the century tally closely, starting at this week’s Cazoo UK Championship, and we would love to hit the target of £25,000.”

Chris Roys, CEO of Jessie May said: “This is such an amazing pledge from Cazoo once again, and we send our whole-hearted thanks to the team for their generosity. Cazoo deliver cars to the homes of their customers, and this donation will help us to continue delivering specialist palliative care straight to the homes of the children and families we support. We’ll be cheering for Centuries over the coming months – good luck everyone!”

Cazoo donated £5,300 to Jessie May across two snooker events last season.

Thursday 25th November

Dynamic Billiard Euro Tour TREVISO OPEN

Presented by BHR Treviso Hotel & 5M Games


WITH 181 PLAYERS gathered at the BHR Treviso Hotel in Northern Italy,
the final stop on the 2021 Euro Tour schedule got underway today
(Thursday). Due to the disastrous effects of Covid, this is the fourth
tournament on the tour since this same event in February 2020. That
said, a full calendar is in place of 2022.

All eyes this week have been on the current Euro Tour No.1, Spain’s
Francisco Sanchez Ruiz who is going for his third consecutive ET title,
and, should he be successful, he would be the first man to achieve that
feat since Oliver Ortmann won four back-to-back championships way back
in 1994.

The Spaniard completed just one match today; a comfortable 9-3 win over
Christos Papageorgiou of Greece to set up a round two match against
Italy’s Alessandro Giordani tomorrow. All the big guns are intact in
what is a stellar field when play recommences at 9.00 on Friday morning.

Meanwhile, the third and final event of 2021 gets underway on Saturday
on the Predator Ladies Euro Tour and some of the competitors have been
readying themselves by playing in the men’s event.

There are seven rounds of matches here on Friday as the field play down
to the last 16 which plays to a conclusion on Saturday 27th November.

All the matches can be viewed live at www.kozoom.com

Results, live scoring and draw are available at www.epbf.com

Finland to host the 2023 Dynamic Billard European Championships.

The 2023 Dynamic Billard European Championships will be held in the
southern Finnish city of Tampere. At the recent European Championships
held in Turkey, the Finnish Billiard Federation’s President, Mr Joni
Ahola, was on hand to sign the contract to stage the 2023 Dynamic
Billard European Championships for Men, Women, Wheelchair and the Under
23’s. The event will take place at the Tampere Exhibition and Sports
Centre in May 2023.

Finland’s Federation President Joni Ahola said “I'm so excited that
Finland got another chance to organise the European Championship after
Covid-19 forced us to cancel the event in 2020. 2023 is very special for
us because the Finnish Billiard Federation turns 50 years old in May of
that year. So, the timing for this European Championship is perfect and
I'm confident we are going to have a great event in Tampere together
with the EPBF."

EPBF President Gre Leenders said “After the 2020 cancellation, I am
delighted that we have managed to come to an agreement with the Finnish
Billiard Federation regarding the EPBF flagship event - the European
Championships Men, Women, Under 23s & Wheelchair Athletes.

“The fact that the Finnish Billiard Federation is also celebrating its
50th anniversary in 2023 makes it even more special. The city of Tampere
is well known in the sports world for its many diverse events and the
top sport climate it offers.

“It is a great prospect for our athletes to be guests in this "sports
city". I would like to thank the Finnish Billiard Federation for their
trust in the EPBF and wish them all the best in their preparations for
the event.”

Finland are no strangers to organising European Championships. Having
already staged all categories over the years, the European Championships
are again visiting the city of Tampere where IBPF President David Morris
used to reside.

Commented Morris, “Yes, I lived there for some time and it’s where I
made some good friends. It’s great to be back as we’ve had some
memorable events there in the past. The city of Tampere has always
supported sports in every form and it is fantastic to involve them again
with the Federation and our sport.”

The event takes place in May 2023 at the Tampere Exhibition and Sports
Centre, hosted by the Finnish Billiard Federation (SBIL) and supported
by the city of Tampere.

Official Tables are from Dynamic Billard, the Official Cloth from Iwan
Simonis, the Official Balls by Aramith, and the Official Slate supplied
by Rasson.

Dress Well, Play Well: WST Partners With McCann Bespoke

WST is delighted to announce a new partnership with McCann Bespoke, one of London’s leading tailors.

The partnership’s first aim is to restyle referees. Tailored dinner and lounge suits, with consideration to style and function, have been crafted for the three referees at this week’s Cazoo Masters – Rob Spencer, Desislava Bozhilova and Jan Verhaas – and will be worn from Thursday’s quarter-finals onwards.

Other leading referees at upcoming events will be wearing McCann Bespoke.

The partnership will expand beyond styling the referees. McCann Bespoke are also working with players to provide them with style consultation and ultimately garments that will improve their appearance and performance.

Recognised as one of London’s leading and fastest growing tailors, McCann Bespoke has a strong affiliation with sport and has a wide range of supporters including cricketers Joe Root, Jos Butler and Sir Ian Botham, rugby players Elliot Daly and Henry Slade and official partnerships with football clubs such Leicester City, Queens Park Rangers and Celtic.

CEO and Founder Neil McCann, who established the company in 2002 has a lifelong passion for snooker and is thrilled to be involved with the sport for the first time.

He said: “As a massive sports fan, it’s an incredible opportunity to restyle the only sport where formal clothing is so integral and features so prominently. It brings together two of my passions in life: men’s tailoring and sport.

“Every player is a brand, and that can be enhanced by the way they dress. We want to help them to maximise their potential and the overall image of snooker – while keeping comfort and freedom as top priorities.

“The suit, bow tie and waistcoat are widely associated with snooker, but we also want to help players create outfits for tournaments which have a different dress code, as well as help them with their clothing off the table.

“There is a perception that bespoke clothing is very expensive, but in fact we are on a mission to democratise tailoring and make it accessible and affordable for everyone, and our pricing reflects that.”

WST Chairman Steve Dawson said: “We are excited to be working with a clothing partner as prestigious as McCann Bespoke for the first time. The contemporary and elegant new referee suits look outstanding and this will help us to build ideas on future dress codes. For the players, clothing is a way of expressing their individuality.

“At our biggest tournaments such as the World Championship, the smart attire of players is important as it reflects the heritage and reputation of those events. Throughout the world, the elegant appearance of our players is one of our sport’s great assets – and it is something that young players aspire to. But at other tournaments such as the Home Nations Series and the Shoot Out there is scope for alternative dress codes. We look forward to working with McCann Bespoke and the players and listening to their views as we evolve and look to the future.”

World number two Judd Trump said: “For a player, having your outfit perfectly fitted helps you feel as smart as possible when you are out there competing. And it’s important to feel comfortable, in order to play well.”

Ken Doherty said: “When you put your bow tie and waistcoat on it makes you feel proud to play snooker. If you feel smart then it helps your performance.”

Fellow former World Champion Shaun Murphy added: “We hold high standards and that’s something that I’m proud of. Having clothes made to measure is vitally important for a player.”

Matchroom Nineball is delighted to announce the addition of the Kremlin Cup to the Nineball World Rankings alongside two events from the USA’s National Billiards League (NBL), globally expanding the Nineball schedule.

SCHEDULE: https://matchroompool.com/world-rankings/

The Kremlin Cup is one of the most prestigious tournaments on the calendar and is set to switch from 10-ball to 9-ball, following the Matchroom Nineball World Rankings announcement and will be showcased this year in Moscow, Russia August 23-28. It will see 198 players competing for a guaranteed prize fund of $50,000 with the tournament open to all and an entry fee of only $150 for over 18 and $100 for under 18.

The Cup is known as one of the biggest on the WPA calendar with players travelling from all over the world to Russia to compete with previous winners including World No.2 David Alcaide, current World Pool Masters Champion Alexander Kazakis and two-time Mosconi Cup winner Tyler Styer of the USA.

The National Billiards League, also set to make the switch from 10-ball to 9-ball, is ever growing in the USA with two tournaments joining the schedule as Ranking Events rewarding placement on the Nineball World Rankings.

NBL will host two Sandcastle 9-Ball Open tournaments that will contribute towards the Nineball World Rankings offering an opportunity for players stateside to make their mark on the rankings as well as offer the opportunity to grow themselves.

Matchroom Multi Sport Managing Director Emily Frazer said: “It is overwhelming and motivating to have such a high stature tournament in the Kremlin Cup to first off make the switch in discipline to Nineball and join our global rankings. The decision shows a huge commitment to both the sport and our plans for Nineball over the coming years and I hope it motivates others to also see the benefit. The Kremlin Cup has received approximately 100 players in the past but can accommodate up to 200, and we hope with this announcement, we can work together with the organisers and push the field to sell out just like our Open events.”

“We are glad to announce that the Kremlin Cup will be included in the prestigious Matchroom Nineball World Rankings. It is a great honor for us to be on the list of the best international tournaments. We look forward to the arrival of the best athletes from all over the world to Moscow with great impatience.” – Evgeny Ivanov, President of Moscow Union of Billiard Sports, the organiser of a Kremlin Cup.

“The NBL coming on board is a fantastic opportunity for players stateside to make their presence known in the game on the Nineball World Rankings and the opportunity to qualify for the 2022 Mosconi Cup at Bally’s Las Vegas, November 30-3 December. We would like to thank Ed Liddawi at the NBL for their support in the rankings.”

“I’ve always stood for cross-promotion of the sport in the American billiards industry as well as creating a clearer structure for American players in the US for qualification into the Mosconi Cup and I’m excited to see many of us working together to provide multiple opportunities for the players to earn World Rankings in their own backyard,” said Frazer.

“As the NBL focuses on 8 & 10-Ball events for American residents only, I’m proud to announce the inaugural 2022 Sandcastle 9-Ball Open commencing June 3-5 which is open to players from all around the World. There will also be a Sandcastle US Open 9-Ball warm-up event October 6-8 just days before the US Open and only 90 minutes away from Atlantic City to offer even more events to the players and help save them travel expenses between venues,” said Ed Liddawi, NBL Founder & CEO.

It is a fantastic venue and right in the centre of a traditional snooker heartland as so many great players have come from Essex over the years, including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Ali Carter, Stuart Bingham and many more.
