The 2024/25 snooker season calendar

With the 2023/24 season over, fans might be wondering what’s on the agenda for the upcoming 2024/25 snooker season calendar.

The recent campaign on the main tour concluded on Monday with Kyren Wilson capturing a maiden world title.

The 32 year-old secured an 18-14 triumph over Jak Jones in the final at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield to etch his name onto the trophy for the first time.

It brought the curtain down on another busy term on the World Snooker Tour, but there isn’t too long to wait until the schedule for the 2024/25 snooker season gets under way.

The World Snooker Tour has released its provisional dates for the new campaign, with many popular events returning and some new events to look forward to.

Q School competitions in England and Thailand towards the end of this month will determine the remaining spots to be filled on the professional circuit.

Beyond that, the 2024/25 snooker season will officially launch in mid-June with the ranking event version of Championship League Snooker.

As has become customary in recent years, the drawn-out event will last for about four weeks, with the season’s first champion to be crowned in early-July.

It seems likely that the Shanghai Masters will continue to represent the first trip to China, but the long-running event could move to a new unconfirmed spot in July.

In August, the inaugural Xi’an Grand Prix will take place while the first Saudi Masters will also commence at the very end of the month.

Open to all competitors on the circuit as the country’s maiden ranking event, it will boast a total prize fund of more than £2 million.

The remainder of 2024 has a similar look to last year, with many of the same tournaments returning again.

That includes events like the UK Championship, the Champion of Champions, three of the four Home Nations series tournaments, and the Snooker Shoot Out.

Although there are still a few gaps on the calendar during the second half of the season, a lot of important dates have been pencilled in for that period too.

The Masters will, of course, take place early in January, with the German Masters back at the Tempodrom at the end of the month.

Other popular events like the Welsh Open, the Players Championship, and the Tour Championship will be back.

Meanwhile, the 2025 World Snooker Championship is scheduled for April 19th to May 5th.
