The format

The 2024 World Snooker Championship draw features the top 16 players in the world rankings and an additional 16 players who came through a qualifying tournament.

The first round, the best of 19 frames, is the only one during the venue stages where the matches will take place over only two sessions.

The format increases to the best of 25 frames during the second round and quarter-finals, played across three sessions.

Four sessions are then on the World Snooker Championship schedule for the semi-finals and the final, which have a distance of 33 and 35 frames respectively.

World Snooker Championship prize money

Like in 2023, the player who emerges from the 2024 World Snooker Championship draw with the trophy in his hands will also pocket a cheque worth £500,000.

The overall prize money is much greater than the majority of other tournaments on the World Snooker Tour calendar, highlighting the prestige attached with playing at the Crucible.

Winner: £500,000
Runner-up: £200,000
Semi-finalists: £100,000
Quarter-finalists: £50,000
Last 16: £30,000
Last 32: £20,000
147 break: £40,000
Highest break: £15,000

While there is a standalone prize worth £40,000 for making a 147 break at the Crucible Theatre, there is also the separate Triple Crown maximum break bonus.

This season, any player who compiles two 147 breaks during the Triple Crown events – comprising the UK Championship, the Masters, and the World Championship – will collect a £147,000 jackpot.

Mark Allen and Ding Junhui are in line to challenge for that bonus having already compiled maximum breaks at this year’s Masters.

Previous world champions

A quarter of the field in the 2024 World Snooker Championship draw understands what it takes to go all the way at the Crucible Theatre.

Luca Brecel is the defending champion after romping to glory in sensational fashion 12 months ago.

As a first-time winner, the Belgian Bullet will attempt to break the Curse of the Crucible but has endured a testing season as the world champion.

World number one Ronnie O’Sullivan will try for the second time to claim a record eighth title of the modern era.

Mark Selby and John Higgins have won the crown on four occasions each, with Mark Williams a three-time winner.

Shaun Murphy, Stuart Bingham, and Judd Trump have all triumphed in Sheffield once in the past.

A further four players have contested World Championship finals only to fall one hurdle short of glory – Ali Carter, Barry Hawkins, Ding Junhui, and Kyren Wilson.
