Snooker’s biggest names will be heading to Leicester in November to scrap it out in qualifying for the right to play in the brilliant final stages of the German Masters next year.

All the top players have to go through qualifying to reach the last 32 of the event, with those players going to the incredible Tempodrom in Berlin in February.

All the big names in the sport are competing, with Ronnie O’Sullivan having a rare crack at this one, having regularly missed the main stages since winning the tournament in 2012.

Stephen Hendry has entered this event and been handed a nostalgic draw in round one against Matthew Stevens, while another highlight is John Higgins against Marco Fu.
