Snooker’s top stars will be back at the Waterfront Hall in November for the 19.com Northern Ireland Open.
The world ranking event has been staged in Belfast for the past three years. The 2018 tournament finished with an epic final between two of snooker’s great names as Judd Trump beat Ronnie O’Sullivan 9-7 to win the Alex Higgins Trophy for the first time.
This year’s 19.com Northern Ireland Open will run from November 11 - 17 November. It is the second of the 2019-20 Home Nations series, and whoever wins the English Open in October will head to Belfast to chase the £1 million bonus on offer for winning all four events.
The event starts with 128 players in a flat draw, all needing to win seven matches to take the £70,000 top prize.

World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: “Since we introduced the Home Nations series in 2016, these four events have provided so many moments of great drama and incredible matches.
"From a fans perspective the wonderful thing about these tournaments is the chance to see 128 players in action all at the same venue, with a multitude of top stars to watch for the price of a single ticket."
Barry Hearn, World Snooker Chairman
“At every event we see amazing stories and new faces showing their ability on the big stage, while the big guns like Judd Trump, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Neil Robertson and John Higgins are regular winners of the trophies.
“Anyone who loves the thrill of watching live sport featuring players at the very peak of their powers should get their tickets booked quickly and look forward to the Home Nations series. These events are growing and we have exciting plans to develop the fan experience at the venues this season.”
