Malta Cup to return?

According to the most recent post on Snooker Scene blog the Malta Cup is set to return as a ranking event later this season which is fantastic news, bringing the amount of tournaments on the tour to nine.

It was disappointing to see the event downgraded to an invitational event last year as I understand that it was one of the most enjoyable to attend as a fan in previous years, as well as the fact that the amount of ranking tournaments in existence was low enough as it was.

With this development and the recently announced Bahrain tournament however, it does indeed appear that the hard work behind the scenes is paying off and a strong calendar is beginning to take shape at last.

Hopefully there won’t be any date clashes between the event and the second season of the Championship League which is due to run early next year…
