Snooker Triple Crown tournaments stay with BBC until 2024

The BBC has secured a five year extension on its broadcast rights deal for snooker's Triple Crown tournaments.

It means the BBC will continue to broadcast all three of snooker’s Triple Crown tournaments until the end of the 2023/24 season, with comprehensive live TV coverage and online streaming of the World Championship, UK Championship and the Masters, the sport’s three most prestigious tournaments.

World Snooker Chairman, Barry Hearn says: 
“So many great moments in the history of our sport are synonymous with the coverage they have received on the BBC. The Triple Crown tournaments have a history which can’t be replicated and bring something extra special to snooker fans and those watching on the BBC alike."
