Mosconi Cup Ticket Stampede Continues

A few left with 11 days to go!

FOLLOWING A STAMPEDE for tickets over the past few weeks, Matchroom Sport can announce that 83% of all tickets to the four days of the 2010 Mosconi Cup have now gone.

Apart from Thursday evening, where there are just 15 tickets left, all downstairs reserved seats for all sessions of the Mosconi Cup have now sold out.

In addition, Saturday evening is totally sold out in all areas and Saturday afternoon has just a few left upstairs.

However, there are still tickets available for all other sessions in the upstairs balcony area, and in the bear pit-like set up at the York Hall, it is arguably one of the most atmospheric views in world pool.

A total of 2,526 tickets have been purchased by pool fans from across Britain, Europe and America as pocket billiard's most exciting event makes its eagerly anticipated return to the York Hall, Bethnal Green, East London, dubbed by many as the spiritual home of the Mosconi Cup.

Taking place from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th, there are six sessions in total – Thursday and Friday evenings and then afternoon and evening sessions on the Saturday and Sunday.

Commented Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn, “The interest in this event is absolutely incredible and ever since we announced the York Hall as the venue for Mosconi Cup XVII, the phones have never stopped ringing.

“Not having staged the Mosconi in the UK for eight years now, it is exciting to realise that the event has really come of age.

“Fans are spending their hard earned cash to travel to the tournament from all over the UK and Europe and there is even a fair-sized travelling army heading across from the USA.

“The two sides are hyped up for this one and ready to give it their all and it promises to be a Mosconi Cup unlike any other.

“The tickets are flying out the door and I expect a complete sell out by December 9th, and with it, one of the greatest sporting atmospheres of 2010.”

All tickets for the 2010 Mosconi Cup are available exclusively from
