Asian betting firm Dafabet will title sponsor the upcoming Players Tour Championship (PTC) Grand Finals snooker event in Ireland.

The culmination of the 13-event PTC series, the Dafabet Players Tour Championship Grand Finals will run from 12th to 17th March at the Bailey Allen Hall in Galway.

Judd Trump, Mark Selby, John Higgins, Ding Junhui and Neil Robertson are among the list of star names competing for this year’s UK£100,000 top prize.

World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn said: “We're very pleased to welcome Dafabet as they are sponsoring a snooker event for the first time and we hope it will be the beginning of a long association. The exposure they will receive through television coverage of this event across the world will be vast.

“The players have been to China, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Bulgaria and the UK for the PTC series and now the leading 32 players are through to Galway to do battle for the trophy. It's going to be a sensational six days of top class snooker.”

Financial terms of Dafabet’s sponsorship were not available.
