Betway renewed its sponsorship of UK Championship snooker tournament

UK bookmaker Betway extended his title sponsorship of the UK snooker Championship for three years.

Betway began sponsoring the tournament in 2015, when he took on the role of sponsorship from rival Dafabet. The British Championship is considered the second largest rating event of snooker after the World Cup and is part of the “Triple Crown”.

The Betway UK Championship is one of the major in the world snooker tour, with a rich history dating back to 1977. Staged at the York Barbican, the event starts with 128 players all chasing the £170,000 to prize.

This year the tournament will last until December 10, and Mark Selby will try to defend the title. The world snooker stars Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump, John Higgins, Shaun Murphy and Neil Robertson will come to the tournament.
