MATCHROOM LAUNCHES INDEPENDENT MEDIA PRODUCTION ARM

Matchroom is delighted to announce the launch of Matchroom Media, a new independent media production arm under the Matchroom brand.

Utilising over 40 years of experience in producing and globally distributing live sporting events – this new division will be home to production of live events, original documentaries and shoulder programming for all broadcast platforms.

Despite the challenges faced in 2020, Matchroom produced over 800 hours of live original programming and expects that to grow beyond 1,200 hours in 2021. With a 12-sport calendar, expected to include the undisputed Heavyweight World Championship with Anthony Joshua, boxing’s Pound for Pound star Canelo Alvarez, the Professional Darts Corporation, World Snooker and Matchroom Multi Sport schedule – the ability to create engaging content is more important than ever.

The latest innovation came in the form of Matchroom.Live, an in-house OTT platform taking advantage of over 13,000 hours of archive footage, whilst also giving a platform for fans around the world to watch Matchroom events live.

Matchroom Media will be headed up by current Director of Programming Katie Hearn who has been at the forefront of Matchroom’s TV expansion since 2004. Katie began at Sky Sports in 1996 and became one of the first women to work on the Premiership and International Football production team. Hearn worked as an Associate Producer on Premier League, FA Cup, England International Matches, Pay Per View Football and European Cup football.

Katie Hearn said: "Matchroom has positioned itself at the forefront of creating and delivering original and unique programming to sporting audiences around the world. We’re excited to expand to produce not only more live sport, but engaging new content to support these events and the sportsmen and women that drive them. From outside broadcasts, live streams and shoulder programming, we’re committed to bring global audiences epic sporting moments and the inspiring stories that are behind them."

Group Managing Director Eddie Hearn commented: “Content has never been more powerful and as we continue our global expansion, in house production of our own live events will help us align the narrative from idea to execution. We plan to assemble the best production team and sharpest talent for our live broadcasts and bring you compelling content and storylines around our 12 sports. We have unique access that will allow us to grow the hype and narrative through powerful shoulder programming and keep the fans and viewers constantly engaged.”

ABOUT MATCHROOM

Matchroom has grown into one of the world’s largest suppliers of sports programming over the past four decades. Leaders in its field with a diverse portfolio of twelve sports: Boxing, Darts, Snooker, 9-Ball Pool, Golf, Fishing, Basketball, Netball, Ping Pong, Gymnastics, Ten Pin Bowling and Poker.

Celtic Manor Resort To Host Snooker's BetVictor Welsh Open

The Celtic Manor Resort will stage snooker’s BetVictor Welsh Open for the first time next month, behind closed doors.

The world ranking event will run from February 15 to 21, with 128 of the world’s best players battling for the Ray Reardon Trophy.

Televised by BBC Wales, Eurosport, CCTV5 and various other broadcasters, the tournament has a global television audience of hundreds of millions.

Shaun Murphy will be defending the title against a field packed with snooker’s top stars. The draw and format will be announced in due course.

Since June 2020, WST has staged the majority of tournaments at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, where strict Covid-19 regulations can be followed. The only exception was the World Championship which was staged in Sheffield.

WST has full confidence that the same rigorous Covid-19 regulations can be followed at Celtic Manor, which successfully staged the Celtic Classic and ISPS HANDA Wales Open tournaments on golf’s European Tour behind closed doors with Covid-secure protocols in August 2020.

Also the host venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup, the resort near Newport in South Wales will now stage a professional snooker event for the first time.

WST Chairman Barry Hearn OBE said: “We are delighted to be staging this huge tournament at Celtic Manor for the first time. This event has such a rich history in Wales, and along with our partners at BBC Wales and Eurosport, we were determined to keep it there.

“In order to stage events of this magnitude we need to ensure that the venue has the right facilities and is big enough to welcome 128 players plus everyone who works on the event while observing social distancing, hygiene, isolation and all of the other Covid-19 regulations which are essential on our events.

“We have no doubt that Celtic Manor ticks all of these boxes, it is a fantastic venue and the players will love it. Unfortunately fans can’t come to watch but it will be seven days of tremendous entertainment for television viewers across the globe.”

Celtic Manor Resort Chief Executive Ian Edwards said: “We are very excited to host a professional snooker tournament for the first time. It is a shame that fans will not be able to attend, especially as South Wales is such a hotbed for snooker, but we all recognise the public health priorities at this time and we will draw on our experience over the past 12 months to provide the safest possible environment for the players and officials.”

The BetVictor Welsh Open is the fifth event in the BetVictor European Series, with the leader of the Order of Merit after six events to bank a £150,000 bonus. Mark Selby is currently the front runner, but just two of the six events have been played so far.

It is also the fourth and final Home Nations event of the season, following the English Open, Northern Ireland Open and Scottish Open.

CAZOO LAUNCHES PARTNERSHIP WITH WORLD SNOOKER TOUR
Sponsorship of new Cazoo Series to cover 3 major tournaments

Cazoo, the UK’s leading online car retailer, which makes ordering a car as simple and seamless as buying any other product online today, announces that it has signed a multi-year deal with the World Snooker Tour (WST) as the main sponsor of the Players Championship, Tour Championship and World Grand Prix.

This trio of prestigious events on the snooker calendar will be known as the Cazoo Series and will see prominent Cazoo branding on the main set, players’ waistcoats and interview and media conference backdrops and will have extensive live coverage on ITV and a range of broadcasters across the globe.

The Cazoo Players Championship will take place from February 22 to 28, contested by the leading 16 players on the one-year ranking list, followed by the Cazoo Tour Championship which will run from March 22 to 28, featuring an elite field of the world’s top eight.

During the 2021/22 season, the Cazoo Series will start with the Cazoo World Grand Prix, scheduled for early December.

This latest deal with WST adds snooker to Cazoo’s impressive portfolio of major sports sponsorships announced over the past year which includes principal sponsorship of the Rugby League World Cup, The Hundred cricket tournament as well as Premier League football teams Everton and Aston Villa.

Cazoo owns and fully reconditions all its cars before offering them on its website. Cazoo has thousands of cars available at any time for either delivery or collection in as little as 72 hours. Every Cazoo car comes with a full 7-day money back guarantee and a comprehensive 90-day warranty.

Cazoo is pioneering the shift to online car buying in the UK and, since its launch just over one year ago, has already delivered over 15,000 cars to consumers across the UK who have embraced the selection, transparency and convenience of buying high quality used cars entirely online.

Alex Chesterman OBE, Founder & CEO of Cazoo said, “We are delighted to partner with Barry and his team at the World Snooker Tour to launch the Cazoo Series. This partnership will help to further grow our audience as we continue to build Cazoo into a household brand and we look forward to engaging with and delivering the best car buying experience to snooker fans across the UK.”

Barry Hearn OBE, Chairman of WST said: “We are excited to welcome Cazoo to the snooker family and are looking forward to introducing our significant global audience to the Cazoo brand. The events in the Cazoo Series are some of the highest quality tournaments on the calendar because they bring together the cream of the crop and only the players in form earn a place in the draw.”

PREDATOR JOIN FORCES WITH MATCHROOM TO TITLE SPONSOR CHAMPIONSHIP LEAGUE POOL

Matchroom Multi Sport and Predator are excited to announce an extension of their current long-term partnership that will see Predator title-sponsor the brand-new Championship League Pool this March 22-29.

Building on a relationship which is entering its 20th year, Matchroom and Predator will deliver the first major pool event of 2021 as 19 players compete over eight action-packed days in Milton Keynes, England.

Predator Championship League Pool has a prize fund of $85,950 and will stream two tables of action live around the world, with 12 matches played on each table daily.

Every day features a seven-player group, with each player facing every other player once in a race-to-5. At the end of the group the top four will advance to the play-offs, playing a semi-final and then final, also played as race-to-5. Play-off champions will advance to the big-money Winners’ Group on March 29, which will provide the showpiece conclusion of Predator Championship League Pool.

Players who finished bottom of each group are eliminated from the event, while the remaining five players in each group will continue to the next day’s play, where two new players enter the tournament.

Emily Frazer, Managing Director of Matchroom Multi Sport, said: “There is a great deal of excitement within the Matchroom camp right now with our biggest ever year of pool scheduled, despite the current climate. The launch of our new event, Championship League Pool has been warmly welcomed by our partners at Predator who share our determination and vision of further expanding the sport.

“The unique format of Predator Championship League Pool has refreshingly allowed both us and Predator to think outside the box and push new boundaries on creativity and advertisement. I am confident that between both teams involved, innovative ideas can be produced delivering a further exciting product for fans across the world who are yearning for live professional pool right now; and what better event than Predator Championship League Pool - giving everyone access to 24 matches, 20 hours a day for eight days solid.

“It is one thing to introduce a new event, it is another to have such a determined partner to share the journey with us!”

Karim Belhaj, CEO of Predator Group also shares his enthusiasm for the event: “Our purpose is to innovate and inspire more players to play the game we love. With the new Championship League Pool format that the Matchroom team came up with, we see an exciting event that matches our vision. We’re really thrilled to expand our partnership with Matchroom and kickstart the 2021 professional season with the Predator CLP.”

The first players taking part in Predator Championship League Pool will be announced later this week. For all the latest news and announcements follow Matchroom Pool on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.

PRESS RELEASE

EPBF ends suspension of Croatian Billiard Association HBS by December 1st, 2020


The Board of the European Pocket Billiard Federation has decided to end the suspension of the Croatian Billiard Association HBS as per December 31st, 2020.

The HBS was suspended during 2020 since one of their members who is currently suspended by WADA for four years for failing to conduct an antidoping test was playing several events which were at least in parts organised and/or sanctioned by HBS. The HBS did nothing in order to stop this athlete from participating in such events. After several attempts by the Board of the EPBF to stop this conduct, the EPBF saw no other choice but to suspend the HBS by June 17th, 2020.

The HBS appealed against that decision and the Court of Arbitration (CoA) of the EPBF was asked to deal with the matter. After hearing all parties involved, the EPBF CoA decided that the Board’s decision would stand and rejected the appeal.

Since the Board of the HBS was open to understand their misconduct, the Board of the EPBF now decided to end the suspension by the end of last year. That means, that members of HBS are from now on free to participate in events organised by the EPBF.
