The World Grand Prix Snooker

 

Celebrating its prominence in professional snooker, the 2024 Spreadex World Grand Prix at the Morningside Arena in Leicester, UK, is poised to captivate fans worldwide. The tournament features the top 32 players from the one-year ranking list after the 2023 Scottish Open, challenging them in matches of varying lengths, starting with best-of-seven frames in the last-32 and last-16 stages and culminating in a best-of-19 frame final played over two sessions. 

 

Notably, the Players Series tournaments, including the World Grand Prix, employ a unique seeding approach, with players ranked based on one-year performance rather than the traditional method. Reigning champion Mark Allen, victorious in the 2023 edition after a thrilling 10–9 triumph over Judd Trump, aims to defend his title against a formidable field. 

 

The Snooker World Grand Prix 2024 promises to deliver intense competition, strategic play, and a thrilling climax, adding another chapter to the storied history of this prestigious event.
