MPN Presents World Snooker Championship 2018

Update: 8 May 2018, Tuesday
Mark Williams is our new champion this year! Having won his last title 15 years ago, the 42 year old Welsh played a well deserved victory in one of the greatest finals of all-time. Williams also last promised before the finals that he’ll do the winning interview in the nude if he wins. Being the man of his words, he just did. Well, can’t say I’m surprised as to be fair this is his 3rd title win which begs a less than conventional celebration!

 
The 2018 Betfred World Snooker Championship begins from 21 April to 7 May in Sheffield, England at 1000GMT. This year also marks the 40th anniversary the championship has been played in the renowned Crucible Theatre.
 
Qualifying rounds are starting on 11 to 18 April at the English Institute of Sports also in Sheffield and will be contested by 128 unseeded players. The best 16 unseeded players will then advance to the main draw to go up against the seeded 16 players.
 
Live coverage will be available through BBC and Eurosport (UK), and Facebook Live (Americas and Asia). Here are the match coverage breakdown for the different countries:
