The current schedule of professional events on the 2024/25 World Snooker Tour

The 2024/25 professional snooker season is set to be an extremely busy one with a plethora of familiar tournaments returning and several new ones making their debuts on the circuit.

It was only last season that the sport’s top tier returned to normality following over three years of disruption due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

New ranking events for the upcoming campaign include the big-money Xi’an Grand Prix and Saudi Masters. There is potential for further new competitions to be announced, with one possibly in Qatar.

At the time of writing (mid-June 2024), there are several gaps and events missing or not yet confirmed. There are suggestions online that the European Masters has been dropped, whilst details for the Championship League Invitational, Riyadh World Masters of Snooker and World Mixed Doubles are thought to be listed.
