Eurosport will screen live coverage of the Chinalife Xingpai Hainan Classic, a new invitation event taking place next week.
The tournament features 12 members of the world's top 16 and all four days will be live on Eurosport2.
World champion Neil Robertson, world no.1 John Higgins, Chinese hero Ding Junhui and other top stars such as Ali Carter, Shaun Murphy and Stephen Hendry are set to play alongside local wildcards.
And 1985 world champion Dennis Taylor has also received an unlikely call-up to take part, having played in the first event staged in China in 1985.
