Snooker Season 2018-2019 Calendar

The 2018/19 snooker season officially starts on 27th of July 2018 with the Riga Masters (first ranking tournament of the year) and it will end with the World Championships on 6th of May 2019. There are some changes in the new season: the Romanian Masters is gone and a new ranking tournament appears – the Tour Championship – with the first eight players contesting the title. There are 25 tournaments in the season, 4 are non-ranking and one “variant” (six red snooker), which leaves us with 20 ranking tournaments. The total prize money for the World Championships will rise to over £2,000,000, but it is not decided yet, so we'll update the table when the time comes.
