Championship League Snooker 2018 live scores and tournament schedule

Snooker's exclusive internet-streamed event returns at the start of 2018 with some of the world's top players descending on Coventry, and you can keep in touch with all the latest results, fixtures and tables here.

Staged by Matchroom Multi-Sport, the invitational event will be played behind closed doors at the Ricoh Arena for the second time following its switch from Crondon Park Golf Club in Essex last year.

There is a lucrative prize fund on offer of between £100-£300 per frame won and a further £10,000 to the winner, as well as a place in the Champion of Champions event later in the year.

Seven groups of seven players will produce seven winners, who will then face off in one further group to determine the winner of the 2018 Championship League.

In each group, every player will play each other once over the best of five frames, following which the top four players will contest in the play offs – Semi-Finals and Final – over the same distance.

Players will be awarded one point for each match won, then most frames won and the least frames lost in the league series will determine their position in the league table. Dead frames will not be played in either the league or knockout stages.

The play-off winner will progress to the Winners’ Group of Championship League Snooker, while the players coming sixth and seventh in the group will be relegated and will not feature in any further group matches.

Therefore, after the group has played its total of 24 matches (21 league matches plus the semi-finals and final) three players will leave and be replaced by a further three players for the next group.

Among the notable names in action include defending champion John Higgins, world number one Mark Selby, Neil Robertson, Shaun Murphy and three-time winner Judd Trump, while Mark King and Anthony Hamilton return to the event and there is a first appearance for Chinese prodigy Zhou Yuelong.
