The 2020 German Masters will run from January 29 to February 2.

Kyren Wilson won the title for the first time in 2019, beating David Gilbert 9-7 in the final.

The world ranking event is staged at the iconic Tempodrom in the centre of Berlin. Snooker’s popularity in Germany has grown massively since the sport was first televised by Eurosport in 2003, and this tournament has been described as the ‘Woodstock of Snooker’ – drawing fans from all over the country to see the best players in the world. The 2,500 seater venue is described by many players as the best on the circuit, and generates an incredible atmosphere. All of snooker’s top players love competing for this title, with former winners including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Ding Junhui, Mark Williams and Mark Selby. In 2017, Anthony Hamilton won his first ranking title by beating Ali Carter in the final.  Mark Williams won the title in 2018, beating Graeme Dott 9-1 in the final.
