Welsh Open Snooker

26 Feb - 4 Mar 2018

The Welsh Open, one of the highlights of the snooker calendar, returns to Cardiff from February 26 to March 4 2018.

The Welsh Open has a rich history as one of snooker’s longest running tournaments, a ranking event every year since 1992. Ronnie O’Sullivan and John Higgins share the record for most titles, with four apiece, while last season Stuart Bingham lifted the trophy for the first time after beating Judd Trump 9-8 in a thrilling final.

Once again this time there will be 128 players battling for the prestigious title. The tournament forms part of the Home Nations series along with the English Open, Northern Ireland Open and Scottish Open.

Fans are strongly urged to get tickets booked fast to make sure of their seats and the chance to see their heroes live. Tickets start at just £8 plus fees – incredible value to see the sport’s top stars!
