The UK Championship, sponsored by Betway, is one of snooker’s most historic and prestigious tournaments.

It is considered the second biggest ranking event, after the World Championship, and those two tournaments make up snooker’s Triple Crown along with the Masters.

The UK Championship was first staged in 1977 and has been won by virtually all of snooker’s great names.

Since 2011 it has been staged at the York Barbican, and attracts huge crowds throughout. In 2016, Mark Selby won the title for the second time by beating Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final.
