BetVictor European Masters Set For Fürth

Selby 2020 European MastersMark Selby beat Martin Gould 9-8 in last season’s final.

This season’s BetVictor European Masters will take place at the Stadthalle in Fürth from 22nd to 27th February 2022.

The popular German venue has welcomed thousands of snooker fans over the years and hosted the Paul Hunter Classic from 2007 to 2019, when Barry Hawkins won the final edition of the tournament.

The European Masters will form part of the eight-event BetVictor Snooker Series, from which the player earning the most prize money will snap up a huge £150,000 bonus.

Last year saw World Champion Mark Selby lift the trophy aloft after beating Martin Gould 9-8 in a thrilling final. More of the same is expected in 2022, when the finest players on the planet head to Fürth.

All matches in Fürth up to and including the quarter-finals will be played over the best of nine frames, with best of 11 frame semi-finals and a best of 17 frame final.

There are some good news in there.

First the the Stadhalle in Fürth will be used again. It’s an unconventional venue but one that allows viewers to be quite cloe to the tables and allows to follow the action on several tables.

Next it’s the old “classic” best of 9 format, a reasonable match “length”.
