ESPN3 To Broadcast partypoker Mosconi Cup In USA
Matchroom Multi Sport can today announce the 2017 partypoker Mosconi Cup will be shown live in its entirety in the USA on ESPN3, ESPN’s multi-screen sports network.
Starting at 2pm EST on Monday 4th December, the partypoker Mosconi Cup is the annual Europe v USA 9-ball pool face-off, taking place at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, with Team America looking for their first win in eight years.
The ultimate champions will be the team that reaches 11 points first and play runs from Monday 4th concluding in an exciting climax on the afternoon of Thursday 7th December.
In addition, ESPN Latin America will bring exclusive coverage of the partypoker Mosconi Cup to South America.
Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn said, “We’re excited that once again, ESPN has given sports fans across America the chance to see what is without a shadow of a doubt pool’s greatest show.
“This year’s partypoker Mosconi Cup should be a close-run thing and anyone who thinks the USA will be brushed aside should think again. Europe has had it all their own way for a long time now but I think they’ll be in for a mammoth battle against an American side under the captaincy of Johan Ruijsink.
“The partypoker Mosconi Cup is pool at its very best and with so much at stake, it is a not-to-be-missed sports event,” he added.
