Crucible ticket holders face dilemma after World Championship update

Ticket holders for this year’s World Championship are being given a week to decide what they wish to do with their tickets as preparations begin to stage this year’s showcase.

Snooker’s biggest tournament is due to start at its traditional home – Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre – on Friday, July 31 after it’s original dates between April and May were postponed due to coronavirus.

But it remains to be seen whether or not fans will be allowed in with the pandemic still taking affect all over the world.

Now, most, if not all, ticket holders for this year’s World Championship have been emailed by Sheffield Theatres who have given them three options – for which they must decide their preferred choice by 12pm on Monday, July 13.

Bosses at the Crucible say they are working hard on plans so that if a number of fans are allowed to attend, they can make it happen.

But any decision on whether fans can attend or not will be made no earlier than July 17 – meaning those with tickets face a bit of dilemma.

These are the options for ticket holders.

Option 1 – To be put forward for tickets for the 2020 Championship

Option 2 – A transfer to the 2021 tournament

Option 3 – A full refund.

Those choosing option 1 who are not successful will be allowed to choose either option 2 or 3 at a later date.
