BetVictor, one of Europe’s leading online gaming companies, is sponsoring the iconic World Snooker Shoot Out event for the first time.
Running from February 21-24 at the Watford Colosseum, the BetVictor Shoot Out features a fast and furious format. All matches are a single frame played over a maximum of ten minutes, with a shot clock of 15 seconds for the first five minutes and ten seconds for the last five.
The world ranking event, which will be televised by Eurosport and Quest, will see 128 players battling for the trophy, with non-strop drama creating a tremendous atmosphere for fans. Last season, Michael Georgiou won the title beating Graeme Dott in the final.
BetVictor has been backing the sport in recent years, having sponsored the Welsh Open from 2013 for four consecutive years, and three of the Home Nations tournaments this season.
BetVictor has already sponsored the English Open, Northern Ireland Open and Scottish Open this season
World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: “We have built a tremendous partnership with BetVictor in recent years as they have sponsored a wide range of tournaments. And we’re delighted to join forces with them on the Shoot Out for the first time. It is one of the most keenly anticipated events of the season due to its distinctive and exciting format. This appeals to new fans and helps us reach out to a different audience.
“The BetVictor Shoot Out is the final event before the cut off for the Players Championship so it comes at a crucial time of the season. I expect to see a strong field packed with many of the world’s top stars. For the fans in the arena and the millions watching on broadcasters including Eurosport and Quest it will be four days of thrilling action.
“We look forward to working with our colleagues at BetVictor and continuing to build a long-term partnership.”
Director of Sportsbook at BetVictor Matt Scarrott commented: “Snooker’s global relevance is rapidly growing, and as big supporters of the sport we’re thrilled to be working with World Snooker once again.”
