The British Open is both a new tournament and an historic one as whilst it can trace its heritage as an event all of the way back to the 1980’s, it returned to the Snooker calendar after a break of 17 years for the 2021/22 season.
The Original tournament actually started life in 1908 as the British Gold Cup before undergoing a number of changes until 1985 when it became the British Open tournament that was to be held annually (aside from 1999 when it was actually held tice) until 2004.
The British Open has one of the flagship events on the tour, so it will be no surprise that many of the sport’s biggest stars including the likes of Jimmy White, Steve Davis, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Stephen Hendry, Paul Hunter, John Higgins, and Mark Williams have all picked up the title down the years.
Although the new version of the event may take some time to rebuild the prestige of ‘glory days’, we are sure that with so many top stars in attendance and with a decent prize fund, the new British Open will prove lots of great action and must watch matches.
The great news for all Snooker fans is that you can watch the event live online via the great live streaming services found on this page.

The tournaments routes go back to 1980 when the event was known as the British Gold Cup which was held in February of that year at the Assembly Rooms in Derby.
That tournament saw Alex Higgins (Northern Ireland) defeat Ray Reardon (Wales) to pick up the inaugural title.
In 1981, the event changed name to the Yamaha Organs Trophy due to sponsorship reasons, with Steven Davis (England) picking up that title after defeating Terry Griffiths (Wales).
Between 1982-1984, the event changed name to the international Masters and featured Steve Davis (twice) and Ray Reardon as the champions.
In 1985, the tournament took on the name of the British Open and was shown liv eon national television for the first.
The tournament was then held every year until 2004 and featured many of the biggest sports in the world, with the biggest names going onto pick up the title and the relatively large prize fund.
In a twist of fate, especially for a sport that was dominated by players form the British Isles in that era and still is to a point to this very day, the fist ever Final of the British Open was contested between 2 non-Brits as Silvino Francisco (of South Africa) defeated Kirk Stevens (of Canada).
That changed for the 1986 and 1987 editions which saw all English finals as Steve Davis defeated Willie Thorne in 86 and Jimmy White defeated Neal Foulds in 87.
1988’s edition saw the first Scottish winner when Stephen Hendry defeated Mike Hallett, with the Scottish superstar also winning in 1991, 1999 and 2003.
The next 3 titles all went to English players with Jimmy White 91992), Steven Davis (1993) and Ronnie O’Sullivan (1994) picking up the title.
That 1994 win for Ronnie was at a tournament held at the Plymouth Pavilions in Devon, which was the first time the event was held outside of Derby.
The event remained in Devon until 2001 with the other finals in Plymouth won by John Higgins (Scotland), Nigel Bond (England), Mark Williams (Wales), Fergal O’Brien (Ireland), Stephen Hendry (Scotland) and Peter Ebdon (England).
In 2001, the tournament made the move north to the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne when the inaugural event held there saw an all Scottish final as John Higgins defeated Graeme Dott.
For the 2002 edition, the tournament moved to Telford where Paul Hunter defeated Ian McCulloch in an all English final.
In 2003 the action came from the Brighton Centre on the south coast of England when Stephen Hendry defeated Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final before the final edition of the original event was held in 2004, once again in Brighton, when John Higgins defeated Stephen Maguire in an all Scottish final.
