The English Institute Of Sport Sheffield will stage the qualifying rounds of snooker's Betfred World Championship in April 2018.
The qualifying event will run from 11 to 18 April with all players ranked outside the world's top 16 in action. There will be 128 players in all, each needing to win three matches to earn a coveted spot at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
A spokesman for World Snooker said: "The Betfred World Championship qualifying event is a very exciting time for snooker fans, even before the main tournament starts at the Crucible. Between now and the China Open in April 2018, all pro players will be determined to secure a top 16 spot, because those outside that bracket face the tough task of winning three matches to make it to the Crucible. In recent years we've seen an array of talent competing in the qualifiers, including Jimmy White, Mark Williams, Ken Doherty, Stephen Maguire, Luca Brecel, Ding Junhui and women's World Champions Reanne Evans and Ng On Yee. It's an incredible chance for fans to see many leading stars on multiple tables, especially for fans who missed out on tickets for the Crucible, which sold out in two days back in May 2017"
