A spokesman for World Snooker said: “The average person spends 15 minutes a day on YouTube so we want at least some of that time to be spent watching snooker! YouTube has over 800 million visitors per month and four billion video views per day so we see this as a fantastic opportunity to develop the popularity of snooker worldwide and bring the sport to people who might not have seen it before.
“Our official page will include some fantastic content featuring the best players in the world. Videos will be posted every day during the Betfair World Championship so we’re urging fans to keep visiting the site and add to their enjoyment of the tournament.”
