For the first time since 1998 the German Masters will be held in 2011 in Berlin, Germany’s capital city. The tournament was first held in 1995, then named at German Open and was held as a ranking event, however in 1998 it became the German Masters and lost is status as a snooker ranking tournament. In 2011 the German Masters will be held as a ranking tournament again and has been arranged due to the increasing fan base for professional snooker in Germany. As a ranking event the 2011 German Masters will see the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Selby, Neil Robertson and Stephen Maguire play in Berlin Tempodrom between the 2nd and 6th of February 2011.

The German Masters will be a 32 player tournament with the top 16 World Ranking players and 16 players who make it through the German Masters qualifiers. The prize fund for the event is thought to be 300,000 Euros. Barry Hearn, Chairman of World Snooker has said he’s pleased to be able to give something back to German fans who have strongly supported the sport and followed the World Snooker Championship so closely. Hearn is confident it will be a great success and continue snookers growth on the international stage.
