The sport's biggest event is set to be played behind closed doors in Sheffield between 31 July and 16 August under UK health guidelines due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
Trump and snooker got a glimpse of the immediate future with this week's Championship League at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.

The event has been successfully staged without fans in attendance with all players requiring COVID-19 tests amid strict hygiene rules and social distancing in place.
Trump will bid to become the first maiden winner of the World Championship to successfully defend the trophy in the modern era following his 18-9 win over John Higgins a year ago.

“I’d be happy to defend it in a car park somewhere,” said Trump, who returned strongly despite being edged out by Ryan Day in his bid to reach the Championship League final.
“I don’t really care. As long as it’s on, it doesn’t really matter where it is.
“It’s the same for all the players, we’re just happy to be out there playing. It doesn’t really matter what’s going on, we’re just here in our little zone in this tournament and it’s just good for everyone involved."
Trump – who bids for a seventh ranking event victory of the season at the delayed Tour Championship which begins in Milton Keynes on 20 June – feels that a lack of fans will not hinder the intensity of the competition.
“There’s not a real difference playing with a crowd, it doesn’t make too much difference for anyone," said the world number one.
“I think this could work for every tournament. Snooker doesn’t necessarily need to have a crowd in every single tournament and it works on TV, it looks good on TV. You just don’t notice those kinds of things.

“The only way you do is if your concentration’s not great but when you’re in amongst the balls and potting balls, to be honest I just completely forget that there normally is a crowd there.”
