Champion of Champions Draw and Schedule

The Champion of Champions returns for a fifth time next week with ITV making its first appearance as a host broadcaster this season.

The lucrative invitational event, open predominantly to only winners from the previous twelve months, is back in Coventry with another impressive line-up.

All but one of the 16 places have been determined, with former champion Neil Robertson waiting on standby to see whether he can make the cut or not.

That is because a victory for either Mark Allen, Martin Gould, or Yan Bingtao in the International Championship this weekend will result in Robertson missing out at the Ricoh Arena for the first time.

As in previous years, the last 16 will be broken up into four mini sections with one semi-finalist determined on each of the opening four days.

A full preview will be provided on SnookerHQ before the action gets under way on Monday but first, you can take a look at the confirmed line-up and running order for next week below.
