BetVictor renews World Snooker Tour partnership


BetVictor Joins Forces With WST For Multiple Title Sponsorships – And The Bonus Race Begins!

BetVictor and WST (World Snooker Tour) are delighted to announce the renewal of a long-term partnership, with BetVictor named title sponsor of eight tournaments during the 2023/24 season.

The leading money winner across the BetVictor Series will once again land a huge £150,000 bonus. Last season, the race to win the bonus came down to a dramatic finish as Robert Milkins had to win the final event in the series – the BetVictor Welsh Open – to earn the extra £150,000, and he did just that, beating Shuan Murphy 9-7 in the final.

The bonus race was first staged in 2020, and was won by Judd Trump in each of the first two years. John Higgins scooped the bonus in 2022 before Milkins came out on top in 2023.

The BetVictor sponsored tournaments will include the four BetVictor Home Nations Series events and the BetVictor European Series, as well as the BetVictor Championship League which is promoted by Matchroom Multi Sport.

WST Chairman Steve Dawson said: “We have worked with BetVictor for many years and they have been an outstanding partner for our sport, so we are thrilled to continue working with them on a wide range of tournaments during the 2023/24 season.

“Snooker has an extraordinary global reach through our vast broadcast and digital audience, extending to every corner of the planet. BetVictor have joined us on that journey, providing them with huge exposure for their brand worldwide.

“For the fans, media and players, the BetVictor Series bonus race adds an extra element of excitement, running across the eight events. Last season, we went to the last tournament in Wales with no fewer than 11 players in with a chance of winning the £150,000, and the race went down to the final night when an emotional Robert Milkins had the best moment of his career. It could not have been more dramatic!

“The 2023/24 season will be fascinating on the table and we are joining forces with BetVictor to enjoy every match.”

Sam Boswell, Head of Sponsorship for BetVictor, added: “We are delighted to continue our long-standing sponsorship of Snooker with eight BetVictor titled tournaments and of course the BetVictor £150,000 bonus race, which has been incredibly popular with players since its creation in 2020. We are looking forward to some great drama on the table over the next 12 months.”
