Where to Watch the 2020 Masters

The first major tournament of the year is about to begin at the Alexandra Palace so just where can you watch the 2020 Masters in London?

Judd Trump is the reigning champion and will attempt to become just the third player in the tournament’s history to defend the crown after a maiden victory the year before.

In the prestigious invitational that has been running since 1975, only Stephen Hendry and Paul Hunter have managed the feat in the past.



Cliff Thorburn and Ronnie O’Sullivan were the other two players to record repeat successes, albeit not after their first triumphs.

While Thorburn’s heyday came in the 1980s, making it not so surprising that the Canadian isn’t in the field this year, record seven-time champion O’Sullivan’s decision against participating this year came as a pretty big surprise to fans around the world.

Yet, those intending to watch the 2020 Masters will still have plenty of other marquee names to get behind over the coming eight days.

Trump faces 2015 winner Shaun Murphy in the last 16 and, in fact, there are eight former champions in the draw in all.

Mark Williams, John Higgins, Mark Selby, Ding Junhui, Neil Robertson, and Mark Allen are the others to understand what it takes to get the job done here.

Barry Hawkins, Joe Perry, and Kyren Wilson have suffered defeats at the final hurdle while Stuart Bingham, Stephen Maguire, Ali Carter, David Gilbert, and Jack Lisowski are the others who will be looking to taste glory for the first time in their careers.

There’s a whopping £250,000 top prize and the coveted Paul Hunter Trophy on offer to boot – named in honour of the Leeds legend who memorably bagged a hat-trick of Masters titles.

The Masters is snooker’s second longest running professional tournament, one third of the Triple Crown, and boasts one of the calendar’s most exciting atmospheres at the Ally Pally.

It is every player’s ambition to play and win in this event, so it will be fascinating to watch the 2020 Masters unfold.

Live coverage for viewers in Ireland and the UK will be made available on the BBC and Eurosport.
