Jason Francis was on Facebook live yesterday to disclose some important news. For those who don’t have acces to facebook, here is his announcement.
There are a lot of “news” in there: pro-ams. junior competitions with a handicap system, seniors tour news, Ronnie’s shop, and a return of the Legends events.
What Jason does to promote snooker is fantastic. Unfortunately because of circumstances out of his control (Covid and Brexit) , it will once again mainly benefit UK based players. As a mainland Europe snooker fan, I write this last sentence not as a criticism to Jason, far from it, but with some sadness.
The part specific to Ronnie stuff is the last one in the video. He will play in three “Legends events” alongside Reanne Evans, Stephen Hendry, Ken Doherty and Jimmy White.
Some dates clash with main tour events: the shoot-out and the Gibraltar Open.
There are also other announcements, detailed in the comments section, and again, for those who can’t acces Facebook, here are screenshots:
Regarding the Seniors Tour news, you will find more details here.
It’s a one hour long video but well worth the listen from start to finish.
