New Logo and Prize Fund Increase for the Euro Tour in 2022

With the EPBF’s Euro Tour series entering its 31st year, it is the longest running 9-ball pool tour in the world. Having already paid out several millions in prize money over the years, the Euro Tour has increased the prize fund for 2022 from 228,000 Euro to 270,000 over the six tour stops. The winners at each event will now trouser €6,000 as their reward while beaten semi-finalists will pick up a cool €3,000 euros.

EPBF President Gre Leenders said, “With the launch of the Live TV Project, the step to increasing the prize money is a logical one. We try to increase the value of the Euro Tour every year and it says enough that the Euro Tour is entering its 31st year.

“The cooperation with Matchroom Multi Sport will also give the EuroTour an extra boost so that the prestige of the Euro Tour will increase even more.”

Player entries for the first-ever UK Open Pool Championship have sold out in under an hour with 256 spots quickly snapped up ahead of the inaugural tournament from May 17-22.

Sign up for the Waiting List here

A prize fund of $200,000 will be on offer as 256 players battle it out to become the inaugural winner of the UK Open Pool Championship with the Major Event contributing towards the newly announced Matchroom Nineball World Rankings.

World No.1 Albin Ouschan will go into the tournament as a red-hot favourite with the likes of World No.3 David Alcaide, World No.4 Shane Van Boening, and World Cup of Pool winner Joshua Filler set to feature in what promises to be a special week of action.

Matchroom Multi Sport Managing Director Emily Frazer said: "We cannot wait to see all 256 players at the inaugural U.K. Open later this year. It is fantastic to see such a big appetite for a brand-new event that we will be bringing. We have seen lots of different players from around the world signing up including snooker players on the World Snooker Tour. With $200,000 on the line, it could really be career-changing for some of the entrants. We’re excited to see the action unfold and will be able to give information on spectator tickets soon"

Excerpt from www.DerbyCityClassic.com

Although evidence dates the game of billiards back to the fifteenth century, the first billiards tournament wasn't put on record until 1878. Billiards seems to have been on an increasingly fast and growing track ever since but no tournament in recent history had been as popular as the twelve year competition held through 1972 at Johnson City, Illinois. Get billiard enthusiasts reminiscing about great players, great tourneys, great games, great memories, and they yearn for those two weeks at Johnson City that drew the world's best players competing in all the games.

General conversation, a desire to return to tradition, and rapid word of mouth resulted in advanced commitment from players to the first Derby City Classic. The success of the tournament, the glowing accolades from players, and their determination to return to The Derby City Classic, proves that not only was it a sorely missed and legendary tradition immediately re-established with the Derby City Classic, but new traditions and legends were born.

Fedor Gorst

Gorst Repeats as Arcadia Arizona Open Champion

Reporter: Predator Group Press Release
Photographer: Predator Group Press Release

Last July, Fedor Gorst helped to kick off the first-ever Arcadia Arizona Open, the first of four events in the newly-created U.S. Pro Billiard Series, by posting an undefeated record and taking down eventual U.S. Pool champion Carlo Biado in the finals.

Six months later, the Arizona Open was back – kicking off the first of six tournaments being held in the United States by equipment manufacturer Predator Group and CueSports International in 2022 – and so was Gorst. The 21-year-old delivered a similar result as he did last summer, as he battled his way back from the one-loss side of the bracket to defend his title, holding off a fierce battle by Filipino Roland Garcia in straight sets, 4-3. 4-2.

With the victory, Gorst earned $25,000 and automatic entry into the 2023 World 10-Ball Championships in Las Vegas.

After his opening break shot of the championship match resulted in an effective spread of the balls, the young man from Moscow appeared positioned to draw first blood but missed a routine 7 ball in the corner pocket. He would tie the match at a game each when his opponent failed to pocket a ball on the break in the next game, then tacked on another rack when Garcia missed the 1 ball on a jump shot. The Filipino would claim two of the next three games thanks victorious safety exchanges and appeared to be in position to steal the first set but struggled with cue ball positioning down the stretch and missed the 8 ball, allowing Gorst to steal the set, 4-3.

Matchroom is delighted to present the 2022 Nineball schedule sanctioned by the World Pool-Billiard Association with for the first time ever the inclusion of tournaments promoted by some of the most established and professional event organisers in Diamond Billiards, Pat Fleming, the EuroTour, and more.

Seeding for tournaments in 2022 will be based off the Matchroom Nineball World Rankings as decided by the Rankings Committee who will continue to monitor the status throughout 2022 to ensure they fairly reflect performance.

The 2023 rankings will take shape from the first tournament on the 2022 schedule with Diamond Billiards’ Derby City Classic, Nineball event in Kentucky, USA on January 26. After the conclusion of the Nineball tournament, the 2023 rankings will start to take shape and be available to see at www.matchroompool.com

Matchroom’s first tournament of the season will be the newly named Premier League Pool from February 13, to February 20 at the Morningside Arena in Leicester. Premier League Pool will be a non-ranking event where 16 players will compete in a league format with a prize fund of $100,000 with a guaranteed payout for last place of $2,500 and the winner taking home $20,000. It will see the top 12 players on the Matchroom Nineball World Rankings plus four wild cards invited.

The EuroTour will have five events on the schedule starting with the Lasko Open (February 26-28) in Lasko, Slovenia.

The first Blue Ribbon (an event with over $300,000 in prize money) tournament of the season follows with the World Pool Championship from April 5-9 with World No.1 Albin Ouschan out to defend his title in a fierce field of 128.

After the World Pool Championship, the EuroTour visits Treviso for the first of two Treviso Open tournaments from April 29 to May 2.

Alexander Kazakis will head to Gibraltar for the World Pool Masters (May 5-8) as the defending champion with the top 20 players on the Matchroom Nineball Pool World Rankings, along with four wildcards invited. Tight pockets, an elite field, and a bruising single-elimination format means only a player at the very top of their game can walk away with the World Pool Masters title.

The first-ever UK Open Pool (May 17-22) will follow with a bumper field of 256 out to claim the inaugural crown and a slice of the $200,000 prize pot. With an entry fee of only $250, it offers the perfect opportunity for a breakout star to make their mark and stake their claim on the Nineball World Rankings. Entries will open for the UK Open on Friday, January 14 at 2 pm UK time.

  Matchroom Launch Global Nineball Ranking System For Pool
Posted by admin
on Tuesday, January 11 2022 @ 10:03:11 UTC  (312 reads)


Matchroom is thrilled to announce the inauguration of the Nineball World Rankings
. The rankings will become the cornerstone of the game globally to recognise Nineball as the primary discipline of pool, sanctioned by the World Pool-Billiard Association. The establishment of the Nineball World Rankings propels Matchroom’s further commitment to the growth of pool globally.

The Matchroom Nineball World Rankings will promote clear, fair, and concise rules to develop the professional aspect of the sport across the world and will:

• Promote pool as a major professional sport
• Create a clear structure throughout the game
• Form qualification for all Matchroom promoted events
• Feature Nineball events outside of Matchroom events, including established and professional event organisers of Diamond Billiards, Pat Fleming, the EuroTour, and more
• Be open to all ambitious players worldwide whilst establishing a fair platform for women in the sport
• Produce fair seeding from rankings throughout all scheduled events

Matchroom’s recent expansion into Open fielded Nineball events is with the aim to increase participation numbers on the professional side of the sport and across the world, with further additions to the roster: US Open, UK Open, and the European Open. Field sizes of 256 players, guaranteed prize money, and now a seeding structure, as well as ranking points earnt, strengthens Matchroom’s commitment to the sport of Pool.

Matchroom President Barry Hearn said: “We are going to make Pool a major global sport and together we’re going to show what can be achieved and what dreams can be created for the players all around the world already playing this wonderful game.”

“For the first time, you have a major global company looking after players and making sure the opportunities are second to none. Get involved either as player or fan. We need everyone to pull in the same direction and under Matchroom’s leadership Nineball Pool will shock the world over the next few years.”

“The game needs to make that quantum leap into the big time and Matchroom are ready to take it there in 2022. This is going to be electric.”

From January 2022, the Matchroom Nineball World Rankings will:

• Feature the primary rankings list of an initial Top 32 ranked players with a top-up of a further 8 players, this list will be used throughout the 2022 events for qualification and seeding to the Matchroom Nineball schedule of events
• Feature the secondary rankings list of live actual ranking points of prize money earnt that will come into effect December 2022 as well as contribute towards the Mosconi Cup 2022 team qualification
• Feature 8 Matchroom promoted events
• Have a Rankings Committee who together initiated the official Top 32 of players and will continue to monitor the status of the primary rankings throughout 2022 to ensure they fairly reflect performance

Matchroom Multi Sport Managing Director Emily Frazer explained: "Finally players have a clear and transparent entry system to the biggest staged events in the world. With the support of the WPA, the Nineball world rankings is the perfect opportunity to bring together the whole pool community. It is time we create structure and organisation in this sport.”

“This announcement of structure is exactly what the sport of pool has needed to push forwards and commercialise. Now there will be a clear structure on our website, that will be detailing our schedule of events, how you qualify, how you earn ranking points, and when the cut-off is. Tournament seedings is a key part of the Nineball world Rankings; an advantage and benefit to the players tis to be ranked in events on order of merit.”

GO Customs 9 Ball Series - Grand Finals

Report by: Can Ibrahim

Christmas is coming, the Solihull team’s getting fat, this can only mean one thing… the Grand Finals are BACK!

Yes it’s that time of the year again and 27 runners assembled to see who would be declared the overall Go-Customs 9-Ball Series champion.

The initial first round games kicked off and the straight knock-out format of the finals day meant there was no time for any settling in.

Stewart Colclough, Apostolis Harmas, Gary Bullocke, Shane Conroy and Spencer Oliver were in strong form right out of the gate - all recording 8-0 whitewashes and helping to quickly cut the field in half.
