Matchroom's new Championship League event will be screened live on in the internet on at least three betting websites.

Bet365, Betfair and William Hill have all signed up to show the new competition, which starts next Monday.

Other betting partners are expected to be announced shortly.

The Championship League, played at Crondon Park, Essex features seven groups, each containing seven players.

The winner of group one goes into a final winner's group while the bottom two players are relegated. The remaining four players go into group two where they are joined by three new players.

The process is repeated until the seven players are found for the winner's group. The eventual winner of this earns a place in the lucrative Premier League next season.

The first group features former world champions Ken Doherty and Mark Williams, as well as Joe Perry, Ali Carter, Ryan Day, Matthew Stevens and Barry Hawkins.

Nigel Bond, Anthony Hamilton and Joe Swail will join group two while Shaun Murphy and Mark Selby are among the top players to figure in the later groups. Players will receive £100 per frame.

The commentators will include Clive Everton, Phil Yates and myself.

Log on to the individual betting websites for how to watch the action live.

Is there anywhere to watch the Chamionship League where opening an account isn't necessary for people under 18

No, but why not ask your dad? Opening an account is free and watching the livestream doesn't mean you have to bet if you don't want to.
