Snooker’s biggest stars head to Saudi Arabia for the inaugural 2024 Riyadh Season World Masters of Snooker, as the World Snooker Tour visits the Middle Eastern country for the first time.

The world’s top-eight players will feature at the 10-player tournament, including seven-time World champion Ronnie O’Sullivan, reigning holder Luca Brecel and 2019 champion Judd Trump as players compete for a total prize pool of $1 million (£788,000).

Saudi Arabia’s Omar Alajlani and Qatar’s Ali Alobaidli will feature as wild card players in the opening round, while Mark Allen, Mark Selby, Shaun Murphy, Mark Williams and Ali Carter are also in action.

The invitational tournament will also see the introduction of the ‘Riyadh Season ball’, a golden ball which can only be potted once all other balls have been cleared from the table if a player is on a maximum break.
