The 2023/24 snooker season commences with the Championship League, and a live stream is available for all matches.
The first ranking event of the new campaign, which runs from June 26 to July 21, sees 128 players compete across three stages at the Morningside Arena in Leicester.
All players are divided into 32 groups of four. The 32 players that top the group tables qualify for the group winners’ stage, consisting of eight groups of four players.
The eight winners from the group winners’ stage then qualify for the two final groups. The overall winner takes the £33,000 title and a place in this year’s Champion of Champions.
There are a host of big names competing including Ronnie O’Sullivan, three-time champion Judd Trump and two-time winner Kyren Wilson.
The latter two are among several former champions in the draw, the others being Stuart Bingham, David Gilbert, Joe Perry, Marco Fu, Matthew Stevens, Martin Gould and Scott Donaldson.
Luca Brecel is the reigning champion but opted not to defend his title, while the likes of Mark Selby, John Higgins and Mark Allen are also absent from the competition.
The groups are contested over a round-robin format, with all matches played as best of four frames, with three points awarded for a win and one point for a draw.
Group positions are determined by points scored, frame difference and then head-to-head results between players who were tied. Places that are still tied are then determined by the highest break made in the group.
All matches are available to watch live online in the UK and various other regions worldwide.
