About Snooker World Cup
The Snooker World Cup is a biennial invitational tournament that began life as the World Challenge Cup in 1979. Wales won the inaugural event, beating England 14-3 in the final and retained the trophy the following year with the same line-up (Ray Reardon, Terry Griffiths and Doug Mountjoy) thanks to an 8-5 victory over Canada.
The event was renamed as the World Team Classic in 1981 and whilst the Welsh reached their third consecutive final, they suffered a narrow 4-3 defeat to and England side consisting of Steve Davis, John Spencer and David Taylor.
Continuing as an annual event until 1990, the tournament saw Canada, England and Ireland register multiple wins before being terminated that year.
A brief revival was held at the Amari Watergate Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand in 1996 with Scotland emerging victorious with a 10-7 win over Ireland.
It wasn't until 2011 that Snooker World Cup was seen on the international snooker calendar again and China showed why it was becoming an emerging force on the green baize by claiming the trophy. 2011 also marked the first time the competition had been reduced to a two-man team per nation.
Another four year break ensued, but that didn't deter China's Yan Bingtao and Zhou Yuelong from keeping the trophy in Asia with a 4-3 triumph over Scotland's John Higgins and Stephen Maguire, despite the fact that they entered the competition as China's B team.
The 2017 edition is once again set to the hosted in Wuxi, in China’s Jiangsu Province at the Wuxi City Sports Stadium.
