The British Open returns this week with the qualifiers being played in Wigan before the main event in Milton Keynes next month.

First round matches involving the top 16 have been held over to the Marshall Arena but the rest will be played from 9-14 August at the Robin Park Arena and Sports Centre.

Despite the top 16 not being at the qualifiers, there is not shortage of big names involved, with the likes of Ding Junhui, Stephen Hendry, Dave Gilbert, Marco Fu, Stephen Maguire and Thepchaiya Un-Nooh involved.

The British Open also employs a random draw, so there can be highly-ranked players facing each other, most notably Mark Selby playing Ricky Walden, Joe Perry taking on Hossein Vafaei and Graeme Dott meeting Luca Brecel in round one.

How to watch the British Open qualifiers

The qualifiers are not being shown on Eurosport Player in the UK, but are on that platform across the rest of Europe.

Bet365 have all the qualifiers on their live streaming schedule, so that will be the place to watch them in the UK. Matchroom.Live does not have the qualifiers on its schedule.
