The Championship League Snooker returns to its traditional format and it all starts on January, 4, 2021. You will find all the information you need about the tournament by following this link to the “Tournament Page”.
This is the list of players involved in the tournament: John Higgins, Stuart Bingham, Mark Williams, Thepchaiya Un-Nooh, Gary Wilson, Zhou Yuelong, Graeme Dott, Kyren Wilson, David Gilbert, Scott Donaldson, Mark Selby, Neil Robertson, Barry Hawkins, Judd Trump, Yan Bingtao, Jack Lisowski, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Joe Perry, Ali Carter, Matthew Selt, Kurt Maflin, Michael Holt.
There are still three unallocated spots, one in Group 6, two in Group 7.
Ronnie will enter the tournament in Group 5, along with Joe Perry and Ali Cater. That group, and the next, are played just before the 2021 Welsh Open. I’m fairly certain that Ronnie will use the opportunity to get good practice ahead of the 2021 Welsh Open and the 2021 Players Championship that immediately follows. The Players Championship is for the top 16 in the one-year list. Ronnie is currently a comfortable fifth in that list. With only the 2021 German Masters, the 2021 Shoot Out and the 2021 Welsh Open counting towards rankings for the Players Championship, he can’t miss out.
