The ROKiT World Seniors Snooker Championship is coming to the Crucible as part of a new partnership with Sheffield City Council to give the city a second major snooker event each year.
Legends such as Stephen Hendry and Jimmy White join a field of 20 players from 16 countries who will battle it out over four days to see who lifts the World Seniors Championship trophy.
For the first time within their four-day stay, a session will be dedicated to showcase the talents of the World Women’s Snooker (WWS) Tour and the World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) Tour.
The event takes place Thu 15- Sun 18 August.
Tickets will go on sale Thu 18 April.
