Qatar is likely to host back-to-back international snooker tournaments in Doha later this year. According to details, Qatar has offered to host IBSF World Championships — men’s and women’s events plus and the Masters.
The annual general body meeting of IBSF and quadrennial elections of the world body will also take place on the sidelines of the competitions.
Besides the World Billiards Championship, World Under-18 and Under-21 events will also take place in Doha.
A decision in this regard was taken during an online video meeting held the other day by International Billiards and Snooker Federation (IBSF) with President Mubarak Al-Khayarin in the chair.
The annual calendar, like other sports, was affected due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The events that will take place in Doha will mark the revival of global activities of the sport after almost one year.
