The Season Starts Here

  • 23rd June 2017

The 2017/18 season starts here on Olympic Day with the venue stages of the 2017 Kasperksy Riga Masters in Latvia.

Following three days of qualifying what feels like a long time ago now in Preston, the surviving players will now battle it out to succeed Neil Robertson as champion and lift the first silverware of the new season on Sunday evening.

With five top 16 players in action, inserted randomly in what was a totally unseeded draw, there are real opportunities for both some of the sport’s emerging and experienced stars to reach the final day and perhaps even go all the way at the Riga Arena.
