Premier League Snooker back for 25th season


Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment Sports Olympic Games

With an exciting new format in place for the 2011 Premier League Snooker, Matchroom Sport can announce the eleven venues and fixtures for this year’s event. The competition gets underway on Thursday 18th August at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness, and visits venues old and new through September, October and November.

The Premier League Snooker is Matchroom Sport's flagship cue sports event and is now entering its 25th season. Televised live by Sky Sports in the UK, it is also syndicated globally ton a world-wide audience.

World Champion John Higgins and People’s Champion Jimmy White get proceedings underway with the winner playing either Neil Robertson or Matthew Stevens in the evening’s final match.

The following evening sees the debut of defending champion Ronnie O’Sullivan as he takes on Shaun Murphy. The winner then faces either mark Williams or White.

With ten players in the Premier League, each player competes on four nights only. With three matches per evening – two semi-finals followed by the final – each match is the best of five frames with no dead frames played.

In the event of a match reaching two frames each, the decider will be played to the rules of the hugely successful ‘Shoot-Out’ tournament, which means a maximum of ten minutes, a 20 second shot-clock for the first five minutes and then 15 seconds for the remaining five.

Points will be awarded for frames won; therefore the maximum number of points a player can gain are six in one evening and 24 over the whole qualifying section of the Premier League. By contrast, the minimum number of points a player can win is zero.
