European Open Championship Returns For Third Year In Fulda, Germany

PhilBoxing.com




The European Open Championship will return to Hotel Esperanto, Fulda, Germany between Tuesday, 6 August and Sunday, 11 August, live on Sky Sports in the UK & Ireland. The European Open sees the World Nineball Tour’s 128 professional players seeded among a 256-man field fighting to become the European champion, with spectator tickets set to go on sale from 12pm GMT, on Tuesday, 27 February.

With $200,000 worth of WNT ranking points up for grabs, the European Open Championship is held in partnership with the City of Fulda and local sport’s authority Fulda Die Sportstadt.

The 2023 European Open final was a complete sell out in Fulda. Make sure you don’t miss out on your ticket by signing up to Ticket Alerts here.

The European Open Championship has grown each year since it’s inception in 2022, with the competition serving as a one of three cut-offs in the Race to the Mosconi Cup. Both previous champions Albin Ouschan and David Alcaide have gone on to represent Team Europe in that year’s trans-atlantic spectacle.

The competition will once again act as a cut-off for the first Mosconi Cup places for both Team Europe & Team USA, meaning absolutely everything is on the line.

Player Qualification

Players outside of the top-128 professional players will be able to qualify for their place among the 256-man field in Fulda through a number of official European Open Championship qualifiers.

Players will be able to compete in as many qualifier events as they choose up until qualification for an event, giving them the maximum amount of opportunities to enter. Once qualified for an Open event, players will be unable to enter any additional qualifiers for the same Open event.

An official list of qualifiers for the European Open Championship will be released soon, with organisers encouraged to register their interest to host an official Qualifier via pool@matchroom.com.

Spectator Ticket Details

Spectator tickets will go on sale from 12pm on Tuesday, 27 February with prices starting from €20 per session with fans also given the opportunity to purchase a weekend pass to see all of the latter-stage action from €60.

To ensure you don’t miss a minute of action across the six days, fans can secure a season pass for $150.

Following last year’s announcement of a three-year extension that will see the European Open Championship held in the German city until at least 2025, Fulda has gained a reputation as a festival of pool in Europe, where fans can experience a city rich with history, with vibrant cultural tourist spots, bars and restaurants.

Spectator Hotel Details

Nineball fans will be able to secure discounted hotel rates in Fulda, Germany through HotelPlanner, the official hotel partner of the World Nineball Tour.

Make sure you secure your room in the heart of Germany here.

Broadcast Details

Through a range of global broadcaster partners, the European Open Championship will be broadcast in every country around the globe. Nineball fans in the United Kingdom & Ireland will be able to enjoy via Sky Sports, with those in the United States able to watch through DAZN. Viaplay will broadcast the event in the Netherlands, Poland, Scandinavia and the Baltics.

Further broadcast details will be released in due course with fans outside the listed countries able to watch the European Open Championship via Matchroom.live.
