World Snooker has today announced Dafabet as the new title sponsor of the English Open, the first of the 2017-18 season Home Nations series.

The Dafabet English Open will run from October 16 to 22 at the Barnsley Metrodome, with a stellar lineup of the world’s top 16 players set to take part.

World Snooker Chairman Barry, Hearn, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Dafabet on board for this highly prestigious world ranking event. Dafabet have shown tremendous support for snooker having sponsored a range of events including the Masters.

“The tournament will be televised live to many millions of people on Eurosport and Quest, bringing outstanding exposure for Dafabet’s brand.

“I’m pleased to see such a strong field heading to Barnsley, the standard is higher than ever and I’m fascinated to see how the week unfolds. The last man standing will be a quarter of the way towards the £1 million bonus.

“I hope to see packed crowds enjoying the chance to see the world’s very best cueists showing their skills.”

John Cruces, Dafabet Head of Sports Marketing and Sponsorship, added: “We’re very happy to be title sponsors for another tournament in the World Snooker calendar to complement our long standing Masters partnership.

“Year on year the following of the sport grows worldwide, which helps put our brand in front of millions of sports fans across the globe. We wish all the players the best of luck and wait to see if someone can do the clean sweep of the Home Nation events and win the million pound bonus.”
