Ronnie O’Sullivan won the title last season in Preston, beating Ding Junhui in the final. Also in the field were Mark Selby, Judd Trump, John Higgins and Mark Williams.
It’s the first of three events in the Coral Series, to be followed by the Players Championship in Preston and the Tour Championship in Llandudno, both in March.
Tickets for this major event, running from February 3rd until February 9th, will be on sale soon.
Hospitality packages will also be available for the semi-finals and final of the major tournament, which includes a seat, programme, two-course meal and a drinks voucher.
If you require access to the viewing areas, you are allocated seating for one person who is accompanying you to assist you as a personal assistant or carer.
