The University of Bolton Stadium will play host to the world’s top players for the Champion of Champions. Neil Robertson, who comes in fresh from winning the English Open, was the defending champion at this event last year, having defeated Judd Trump 10–9 in the 2019 final.
The Thunder from Down Under made the final once more in 2020, but lost out to Mark Allen 10-6 as the Northern Ireland Open champion won the tournament for the first time. Ronnie O'Sullivan is also in action at this event, as are Mark Selby, Shaun Murphy, Mark Williams and Kyren Wilson.
Murphy shrugs off sloppy start to see off Maflin and book his place in last-16
John Higgins is also involved, and the Scot made history with his 800th career century at the event last year.
