European Masters returns to beautiful Lommel.
Snooker’s European Masters world ranking event will return for the second time to Lommel , in the province of Limburg, in October 2018. The tournament was staged in Belgium for the first time in 2017 after the last ranking event held in Belgium for over 2 decades ago. The event proved a great success with many of the world’s top stars competing for the trophy. Fans flocked to the De Soeverein to see players including Judd Trump, Neil Robertson, Mark Selby, John Higgins and home favourite Luca Brecel. Trump won the title by beating Stuart Bingham 9-7 in an exciting final.
