The Championship League returns on Tuesday as the epic tournament nears its conclusion after getting underway at the start of January.

Six groups have been played and six players are already into the Winners’ Group, with the final place decided on Wednesday.

When one man emerges from Group Seven, the Winners’ Group is played over Thursday and Friday, with a winner being crowned just a matter of days before the World Championship begins, so there is momentum and confidence to be gained before the Crucible.

This is the second time this event has been played this season, although the format is different this time round, but Kyren Wilson has the chance to retain the title he won by beating Judd Trump in October.

Championship League Group Seven

Playing in a round-robin on 30-31 March are: Kurt Maflin, Yan Bingtao, Neil Robertson, Anthony McGill, David Gilbert, Mark Williams and Joe Perry.

One will progress to join the six winners of the previous groups.

Winners’ Group

Already qualified are Zhou Yuelong, Graeme Dott, John Higgins, Judd Trump, Kyren Wilson and Ali Carter.

The Winners’ Group is played on Thursday 1 – Friday 2 April with the champion crowned on Friday night.

How to watch the Championship League

Table One will be shown on Freesports in the UK and Ireland, while all the action is available to stream on Matchroom.Live and various betting websites.
