Maplin Electronics UK Championship: Qualifying tickets now available

As snooker’s second biggest event gets ever-closer, tickets for the qualifying matches are now available to purchase…

This year all of the qualifiers are to be held at the English Institute for Sport in Sheffield, a very nice venue as I discovered yesterday when I visited for the Premier League.

To get your tickets and view all of the details, please visit the Sheffield Arena website by clicking here.

Remember that as this is the UK Championship, the matches are the best of 17 frames and so will be spread over two sessions of eight and then a possible nine frames.

Also note that tickets are priced at £5 for a combined ticket allowing you to see both the morning and afternoon sessions, while if you want to attend in the evening, that would cost another £5.
