Q-Tour Playoff in Bosnia

The WPBSA has announced that the newly expanded WPBSA Q Tour Global Playoff will be held at the Hotel Hills alongside the European Championships organised by the EBSA, in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, from 13-15 March 2024.

The event will be contested by 24 players who will need to win three matches to secure a professional tour card.

The relaunched Playoff will see three players earn a two-year World Snooker Tour card from the start of the 2024/25 season.

This will include a minimum of 16 players from the Q Tour UK/Europe Series, with Liam Davies, Michael Holt, Umut Dikme and Antoni Kowalski already guaranteed to qualify as event winners so far this season.

They will be joined by up to eight players from regional Q Tour events held around the world. To date, Q Tours in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Middle East Regions have already been announced, with outstanding performances based upon regional ranking lists set to qualify for the Global Playoff.

Jason Ferguson, WPBSA Chairman said: “We are delighted to announce that this prestigious new Playoff will be held alongside the EBSA European Championships in Sarajevo next spring.

 “I would like to thank our friends at the EBSA who I know will strive to deliver the very best conditions for the players in what are hugely important matches and I look forward to seeing who will emerge victorious from what promises to be a wonderful event.”
