Betfair supports Snooker Shoot-Out

Betting exchange and online casino operator is to serve as the title sponsor for quick-fire one-frame tournament series set for Blackpool in January.

Monday 30th July 2012

Betting exchange and online casino operator Betfair has signed a deal with the World Snooker that will see it serve as the title sponsor for the Snooker Shoot-Out tournament in January. First introduced last year, the Betfair Snooker Shoot-Out, sees 64 players compete in a series of quick-fire one-frame games. The next edition, which will feature a 32,000 top prize, is scheduled to take place from January 25 to 27 at the Tower Circus Arena in Blackpool. “We are thrilled to be working with Betfair, the world's biggest international online sportsbetting company, on the most exhilarating event on the snooker calendar,” said Barry Hearn, Chairman for World Snooker. “This tournament is all about thrilling and fast-moving snooker action. It’s great fun for the players and for the fans who come along and when the arena is packed out it generates such a buzz. The Betfair Snooker Shoot-Out has become one of the most widely anticipated events of the season so everyone should get their seats booked straight away.” Last year’s tournament was won by English professional Barry Hawkins while January’s edition is set to be screened live on Sky Sports. “We're proud to sponsor such a unique event, one which is like no other,” said Matt Robinson, International Director for Betfair. “The Betfair Snooker Shoot-Out has revolutionised the game and I'm confident our customers will take to its fast-paced nature. The tournament is a welcome addition to our growing list of sponsorship properties.”
