The Players Championship Grand Final is a professional ranking snooker tournament, which is the last event of the Players Tour Championship seasons. Barry Hawkins is the reigning champion.

History[edit]
The Players Tour Championship Grand Finals was first held in 2011 at The Helix in Dublin,[2] between the top 24 players of the Order of Merit, who played at least 6 events; 3 in Sheffield and 3 in mainland Europe.[3] The event was sponsored by PartyCasino.com.[4] In 2012 the event moved to the Bailey Allen Hall in Galway,[5] and was sponsored by Betfair.[6] In 2013 the event was sponsored by Dafabet,[7] and the competition was expanded to 32 players. The field consisted of the top 25 players from the UK/European Order of Merit, the top four players from the Asian Order of Merit and the three APTC event winners. The seedings of the final was based on the combined list of both Order of Merits.[8]

In 2014 the event was renamed to Players Championship Grand Final and it moved to the Guild Hall in Preston, England.[9] It was originally planned, that the event would take place in Bangkok, Thailand,[10] but due to the political unrest in the country the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association decided to relocate the event.[11] The qualifying criteria were also changed for the 2014 event. The event still accommodated 32 players, but the number of qualified players from the Order of Merits was changed with 24 coming through the European Tour Order of Merit and eight through the Asian Tour Order of Merit.[12]

Players Tour Championship — серия низкорейтинговых снукерных турниров, состоящая из 12 этапов (по шесть в Англии и континентальной Европе), а также финального турнира (Гранд-финал PTC). Серия проходит на протяжении почти всего сезона — с июня по март.

В каждом из 12 турниров могут принять участие все профессионалы из мэйн-тура и все желающие любители. Если общее количество участников больше, чем 128 игроков (на это число рассчитана основная сетка любого этапа), то проводится предварительный раунд квалификации. За участие в каждом этапе игрок должен внести £ 100. В финальный турнир выходят 24 игрока, заработавших наибольшее количество призовых и участвовавших не менее, чем в 6 этапах (трёх английских и европейских).

Все матчи турнира играются до 4 побед.
