The biannual Snooker World Cup returns at the Wuxi City Sports Park Stadium in China this week, and you can follow all the latest fixtures, results and tables here.

The 16th edition of the unique invitational features 24 nations competing in an initial round-robin format in an attempt to progress to the knockout phase and challenge for the $200,000 title.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Wuxi will host the tournament every two years for the next decade. 

China A are the defending champions after Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo defeated Judd Trump and Barry Hawkins of England in the 2017 final.

This year's tournament, which runs from June 24-30, will feature a star-studded field, which includes the Scottish pairing of John Higgins and Stephen Maguire and England's Kyren Wilson and Jack Lisowski.

Thepchaiya Un-Nooh and Noppon Saengkham form a dangerous Thailand team, while Mark Allen and Jordan Brown link up for Northern Ireland and veteran duo Ken Doherty and Fergal O'Brien feature for Republic of Ireland.

Group Stage matches are to be contested over the best of five frames: two singles, a doubles frame, and two reverse singles. 

The top two teams from each group advance to the Knockout Stages, the order being determined by total frames won. 

If there is a tie in either of the first two places the following rules determine the positions: if two teams are equal, the winner of the match between the two teams will be ranked higher. If three or more teams are tied, a sudden-death blue ball shoot-out will be played. 

During the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals, and final, the format is best of seven: two singles, a doubles frame, two reverse singles, another doubles frame, and a winner-take-all singles if necessary.
