The event will be known as the Snooker Shoot-Out and will run from January 27 to 29 at the iconic Circus Arena, at The Blackpool Tower, in the north-west seaside town.

The Snooker Shoot-Out is a one-frame knockout tournament with frames lasting a maximum of ten minutes and a reducing shot-clock to ensure fast moving action. The world’s top 64 players, including Mark Selby, Judd Trump, Stephen Hendry, Ding Junhui and Masters Champion Neil Robertson will be battling for the £32,000 top prize.

World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: “We are delighted that has come on board for what will be a fantastic three days of unabashed snooker fun!

“Last year’s event was a tremendous success and tickets have been flying out the door! It will be great for those watching on Sky and I can’t wait to see Blackpool Tower Circus packed to the rafters with frenzied fans!

“Let the Party begin!”
