The China Championship is a professional snooker tournament held in Guangzhou, China which became a major ranking event in 2017.
Established as an invitational tournament in the 2016/17 season, the 16-man competition carries the biggest prize pool of any event ever held outside the UK, with the winner pocketing £150,000.
Each main tour professional is required to win one qualifying match in Preston in order to reach the 64-man main event.
John Higgins defeated Stuart Bingham to claim the inaugural title in 2016 before Belgium’s Luca Brecel claimed his first major ranking title courtesy of his triumph over Shaun Murphy in the 2017 final.
