Back in London after a four-year hiatus, poolâ€™s high-octane version of golfâ€™s Ryder Cup pits two five-man teams in an intense battle over four days of play. Now entering its 23rd year, the Mosconi Cup is poolâ€™s biggest tournament, and the most drama-packed event in the billiards calendar.
Europe v USA is always a sporting battle like no other and the Mosconi Cup delivers on every level as top pro pool shooters from Europe and America fight it out over four days of intense action to determine the destination of the most prestigious trophy in world billiards.
Who will rise to the occasion on poolâ€™s biggest stage, and who will crumble under the pressure? Who will be roared to glory by the passionate crowd, and who will wilt under the intimidation? Can USA regain that was theirs for so long? Or will Europe retain their vice-like grip on the famous trophy?
Commented Barry Hearn, Matchroom Sport Chairman: â€œWith the increasing success of the Mosconi Cup weâ€™ve taken poolâ€™s biggest event to Londonâ€™s most iconic venue.
â€œLast time in the UK at Blackpool, we sold out in ten days and last December in Vegas, the 1000 seat arena was bursting at the seams.
â€œThe Ally Pally will have up to 1,800 seats and hopefully we will be sold out and have the biggest, most atmospheric Mosconi ever!â€
Broadcast around the world, the Mosconi Cup transcends pool as one of sportâ€™s must-see events. Last year in Las Vegas, Europe retained the trophy against an impressive and energetic young American side that showed much promise but ultimately came up short.
The worldâ€™s best players, a passionate crowd and the most famous trophy in pool are just some of the ingredients which make the Mosconi Cup simply unmissable.
