Snooker Masters moved

The 2021 Snooker Masters will be moved to Milton Keynes instead of London due to COVID-19 regulations. The World Snooker Tour confirmed yesterday that the prestigious invitation event, which starts on Sunday, has been moved from London to Milton Keynes, about 80 kilometers northwest of the British capital. “The WST had planned to host the event at Alexandra Palace in London, its home since 2011. But given the current COVID-19 restrictions, the decision has been taken to stage the Masters in a ‘bubble’ environment, behind closed doors, at Arena MK in Milton Keynes,” read a statement released by the organizers. The event, involving the top 16 players in the world, will run to January 17, with seven-time Masters champion Ronnie O’Sullivan facing China’s top player Ding Junhui in the first round. Chinese hopeful Yan Bingtao was drawn to play against Australian ace Neil Robertson while world No. 1 Judd Trump will face David Gilbert in his opening match.
