2014 Mosconi Cup

This years Mosconi Cup returns to the Britain and for the first time Blackpool, at the Tower Circus.

This will be the 21st edition of the Mosconi Cup and starts on the 1st of December and comes to an end on the 4th December. This years event will comprise of USA and European teams of five players competing in both singles and doubles matches.

The Europeans, the winners of last years event held at The Mirage in Las Vegas and the winners of the last five Mosconi Cups are already 2/5 favourites to win it again.

“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!”
