It's less than four months until the English Open is on, and World Snooker haven't even released an estimate as to when tickets go on sale. (I've been e-mailing them to ask.)
It was something like the 8th July last year, and the English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish Open all went on sale on the same day.
Is it that surprising that the English Open did so rubbish ticket sales? Maybe this is something World Snooker want to look into? The 'Majors' go on sale a year in advance, and do much better sales.
I'm always hearing complaints that a lot of the smaller tournaments don't feel like a big deal. Is it a surprise if World Snooker don't treat them like a big deal? I'm literally sending them e-mails to ask them when I can buy tickets.
