Snooker World Cup Free bets

While the World Snooker Championship continues to be the biggest event on the calendar, team events have really struggled in recent years. The World Doubles Championship ended in 1987 and the World Cup hadn't been staged since 2011. It returned in 2015 and was last held in 2017 when the China A team of Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo won the title. It's not known when the World Cup will return to the snooker calendar.

Snooker World Cup History

The tournament was first held in Birmingham in 1979 under the name 'The World Challenge Cup' with just six teams taking part - England, Northern Ireland, Wales, Canada, Australia and a Rest of the World team.  The first world champions were the Welsh team of Ray Reardon, Terry Griffiths (who was the reigning world champion) and Doug Mountjoy.

The following year the tournament moved to the New London Theatre in London, best known for staging the musical 'Cats.'  Wales again won the title again using Reardon, Griffiths and Mountjoy. The Northern Ireland team became an All-Ireland team for this tournament.  In 1981 the title was changed to the World Team Classic and moved to the Hexagon Theatre in Reading with Scotland taking part for the first time.

In 1985 the tournament finally became known as the Snooker World Cup and moved to Bournemouth. Eight teams took part with England having two teams. This ran until 1990 when Canada won the title for the first time since 1982. It was also the last World Cup to be held in England.  There were no more World Cups until 1996 when Scotland won the World Cup (not a sentence you read that often) in Thailand. Twenty teams took part that year but there wasn't to be another tournament until 2011 when China won the trophy beating Northern Ireland in the final with the tournament again held in Thailand. 

2015 saw the tournament held in China which allowed them to field two teams. It was the China B team that won the title beating Scotland in the final. The Chinese B team consisted of Yan Bingtao who was aged only 15 and Zhou Yuelong who was slightly older, he was 17. Scotland were represented by John Higgins and Stephen Maguire.

The tournament was next held in 2017 and again China were the winners. This time it was their A-Team that won with Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo repeating their 2011 win. They beat the English team of Judd Trump and Barry Hawkins in the final.
