The WST Classic gets underway on Thursday in Leicester, with snooker’s biggest names descending on the Morningside Arena for the brand new, hastily arranged tournament.

The new event has come about due to the Turkish Masters being cancelled because of financing issues, with the WST Classic rustles up on short notice.

Fans will only be at the venue on the final day and it unusually runs from Thursday to Wednesday, so it is a unique competition, but certainly better than nothing, which was a possibility when the Turkish Masters was scrapped for this season.

128 players will play down to eight from Thursday to Tuesday, with the quarter-finals onwards in front of spectators on Wednesday 22 March.

How to watch the WST Classic

The new event is being shown on Matchroom.Live and it will cost £4.99 to sign up to the service for the seven-day tournament. There will be commentary on the main table from Dave Hendon and Dominic Dale, with players popping in to chat with them over the competition.
