World Snooker has agreed a five-year contract extension with the BBC to broadcast the World Championship, the UK Championship and the Masters.

The deal, which includes television and online coverage, will now run until the end of the 2023-24 season.

World Snooker chairman, Barry Hearn, said: “So many great moments in the history of our sport are synonymous with the coverage they have received on the BBC.

“The Triple Crown tournaments have a history which can’t be replicated and bring something extra special to snooker fans and those watching on the BBC alike.”

Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport, added: “The new deal means that these events will continue to be televised free-to-air for many years to come, which is fantastic news for the many millions of fans around the UK.”
