The World Snooker Federation (WSF) Championship gets underway on Saturday 3 February at 10am (CET) at the Grand Blue Fafa Resort in Golem, Albania.
Thirty-eight nations will be represented at the fifth WSF Championship with 211 players competing for the title and a two-year World Snooker Tour card.
Hungary’s Bulcsu Revesz made history by winning the 2024 WSF Junior Championship to become his country’s first ever main tour professional.
Both Revesz and runner-up Gong Chenzhi feature in the open event. Other notable names in the field include the recent Albanian Women’s Open champion Ng On Yee, 2018 WSF champion Luo Honghao and 2020 WSF Junior champion Gao Yang.
The winner will be crowned on Sunday 11 February when the best-of-nine frame final takes place.
