Romania hosted a professional snooker tournament for the first time when the new European Masters world ranking event took place in Bucharest in 2016, promoted by McCann/Thiess.

Judd Trump won an incredible final, coming from 8-6 down to beat Ronnie O’Sullivan 9-8 at the superb Circul Globus venue.

World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: “We are thrilled to bring snooker into another new territory and once again expanding snooker’s global footprint. The new European Masters is a tremendous addition to the calendar.”
