PartyPoker Mosconi Cup Hosted by Tower CircusThe PartyPoker Mosconi Cup will be back this year and in its 21st year of operation and it was just announced that the Tower Circus in Blackpool will be hosting the prestigious event. The event doesn’t take place until December of 2014 but players are already anticipating the event.
From the 1st to the 4th of December, top players in the industry will be able to compete in the event. Two teams of five players each will represent Europe and USA, taking part in single and double matches. The European team had a great win last year at the Mirage and the team is already the favorite to win the event this year. The USA team would be looking for their first win since 2009, so they are long overdue for a win!
The event is sure to be a big hit at the Tower Circus facility as it is both historic and lovely. The facility was first built just before 1900 and is rich with history. The facility is located just below the Blackpool Tower and would be the perfect place to highlight the famous event.
Barry Hearn is the Chairman of Matchroom Sport and he commented on the venue choice by stating: “After two great years in East London, the Mosconi Cup has now outgrown at the York Hall and the Tower Circus in Blackpool is the perfect replacement. It is an old style Victorian circus with seating for up to 800 people and the atmosphere will be the best yet. We have used this venue for the Snooker Shoot-Out and there is nothing like it for cue sports! The Americans have got a big job to do this year following on from last year’s hammering but I believe they will be taking a different approach in 2014. The Europeans will be as ready as ever. I’ve no doubt that we will have sold-out crowds for Mosconi Cup XXI and I think it will be the goal of every pool fan in the UK and Europe to be in Blackpool in December!”
