Commented Matchroom Sport’s Barry Hearn, ‘Following on from the sell-out success of the Mosconi Cup in the UK last December, the Masters gives UK pool fans a golden chance  to see some of the biggest names in the game from around the world.

‘We will be building a compact 500 seat arena within the Metrodome and with spectators right on top of the play, I hope British and European pool fans will come out to see some of the great names of pool.

‘There will be four UK players competing including local stars Darren Appleton and Chris Melling and I’m sure they will be well supported throughout. We’ve kept the tickets affordable and we’re looking forward to sell-out crowds in October.’
