DUSSELDORF TO HOST WORLD SERIES FINALS

Dusseldorf will host the Grand Finals of the new World Series of Snooker from November 28-30.

The field will feature the eight leading players taking part in the first four events, the best four local wildcards from these tournaments and four invited players.

The overall winner will receive a cheque for €70,000 (£56,000) - more than the winners' cheque in four of last season's seven world ranking events.

The new series will be broadcast on Eurosport and includes five former world champions - Shaun Murphy, John Higgins, Graeme Dott, Ken Doherty and Steve Davis - plus world no.2 Stephen Maguire, reigning Masters and Welsh Open champion Mark Selby and Chinese ace Ding Junhui.

Quote Rolf Kalb in the German Eurosport forums: „Attention: David is early on this. It’s right that the final is planned to be in Germany but this isn’t nailed yet. Other cities are under discussion.“

Later he added: „Düsseldorf is almost not under diskussion, but it would be NRW (North Rhine-Westphalia) (If it comes to Germany).“
