Following on from 17 days of World Championship drama at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, a selection of snooker’s great and the good will all be under one roof once again for a special event in London.
Featuring the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, Jimmy White and Steve Davis, British Eurosport will screen live action from the Snooker Legends Cup event at the Civic Hall in Bedworth on the weekend of May 11-12.
The format of the competition pits four players from England and Northern Ireland against four players from the rest of the world.
Representing England and NI will be multiple major winner Ronnie ‘The Rocket’ O’Sullivan, along with three snooker legends out of the top drawer, six-time world champion Steve Davis OBE, trick-shot specialist Dennis Taylor and Jimmy ‘The Whirlwind’ White.
The rest of the world team will feature some of the best players in the history of the game.
Seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry will be joined by snooker-turned-pool player, Tony Drago, current world number two Neil Robertson and former world number one, Cliff Thorburn.
There will be four sessions over the weekend hosted by John Virgo, all featuring action from singles and doubles matches in which each player will compete at least once a day.
Two of those sessions will be broadcast live on British Eurosport – the evening sessions on both Saturday and Sunday.
In the Eurosport commentary box, David Hendon will be joined by former world champion Joe Johnson.
