Betfair to Sponsor Snooker’s 2013 Masters

November 8, 2012

Betfair have been announced as the new sponsors of the Masters, one of the iconic events on the World Snooker Tour, which will take place at Alexandra Palace early next year.

Snooker’s most prestigious invitation event will again feature 16 players and sees Neil Robertson defend the title he won in 2012 by beating Shaun Murphy 10-6.

World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: “It’s a great pleasure to welcome on board Betfair for our biggest and best invitation event.

“We are already working with them on a range of tournaments so we know what a professional team they are and how much they value the outstanding global exposure they get from snooker.

“The Masters is such a wonderful event, with only the elite players invited to compete for the famous trophy. It’s going to be an incredible eight days on the baize at Ally Pally and we look forward to joining Betfair to enjoy the show.”
