2013 PartyPoker.net Mosconi Cup : Mirage named as venue

The MIRAGE HOTEL & CASINO, the first of the ‘super resorts’ on the Las Vegas Strip, will play host to the 20th annual PartyPoker.net Mosconi Cup which takes place from Monday 2nd to Thursday 5th December.

Following on from five stagings at the MGM Grand, the Mosconi Cup now moves just up the road to the Mirage, where promoters Matchroom Sport will be installing their 600 seat arena to produce the most intimidating atmosphere in pool.

Commented Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn, “We are very excited to have the Mirage as our hosts for what will be a very special edition of the Mosconi Cup. Las Vegas has been our home and away venue for the past decade and we’re delighted to be staying in the city of lights this year.

“I’ve no doubt that we will have sold-out crowds throughout the four days of the event and we will be doing everything within our power to make this the biggest Mosconi Cup of them all. Stand by for some major announcements!”

The PartyPoker.net Mosconi Cup is the annual Europe v USA 9 ball pool challenge played out between two sides representing the very best in pool talent from both sides of the pond.

With victories in the past three Mosconi Cups under their belt, the Europeans will surely start as favourites but in front of a home crowd and playing in an intense atmosphere, the Americans will have every chance.

Information on how to purchase tickets to pool’s number one event will be made available shortly.

The 2013 PARTYPOKER.NET Mosconi Cup is sponsored by PartyPoker.net, the world's leading online poker school. Cloth is supplied by Iwan Simonis and the Official Balls are Super Aramith.
