Nine events in the World Snooker Tour are being sponsored by gamblng company, BetVictor, for the 2022/23 season.
Described as a ‘dedicated supporter of snooker for many years’, the firm has also highlighted that the leading money winner across the BetVictor Series is set to earn a £150,000 bonus.
The BetVictor-sponsored tournaments will include the four BetVictor Home Nations Series events, the BetVictor World Mixed Doubles and four others.
WST Chairman, Steve Dawson, said: “BetVictor has been a fantastic and welcome part of the snooker family for many years and we are thrilled to continue our partnership with them.
“In the coming season they will sponsor a wide range of events with a variety of formats. Every tournament will feature the very best players in the world at a time when the entertainment delivered by our sport is stronger than ever.
“The BetVictor bonus has provided a fascinating extra element to our tour over the past three years. From the first event, players are striving to top the leaderboard and put themselves in line for the £150,000. To have 11 players in the race over the final three days of the series last season gave us a thrilling conclusion and we hope for a similar story next time.
“Snooker continues to grow in terms of our worldwide television and digital audience, with new and younger fans discovering the enthralling nature of the sport every year. BetVictor have joined us on that journey, bringing their brand to hundreds of millions of followers. They are a great team to work with and we look forward to developing our relationship for many years to come.”
