Ladbrokes Mobile to Sponsor Wembley Masters

Exciting news today as World Snooker have confirmed that this season’s Wembley Masters will be sponsored by major gambling firm Ladbrokes. The sponsor will be paying a six figure fee and the tournament known as the Ladbrokes Mobile Masters.

Having watched a fair amount of darts in the past I am familiar with Ladbrokes as a sponsor of a major tournament through their association with the World Championship and there is no reason to believe that their involvement with snooker will be anything other than a positive for the sport.
