Wells Withdraws After Positive Covid-19 Test

Daniel Wells has tested positive for Covid-19 at BetVictor Championship League Snooker and has therefore been withdrawn from the event.

Wells was tested earlier today (Friday, October 2nd) and remained in isolation until the results of the test were known, at which point Wells left the venue immediately with no direct contact with other personnel. Wells had previously tested positive at the European Masters last Tuesday, September 22nd and had remained in self-isolation since. In accordance with Government guidelines he was able to re-test on Friday. All other players who were tested on Friday (October 2nd) returned negative results.

Lei Peifan, who received an invalid result on Thursday, was re-tested with a negative result. However, he opted to leave the event bubble and therefore Group 24 will now proceed with three players, each playing each other twice to maintain six matches in the group.

Since Matchroom Multi Sport events restarted in June, strict Covid-19 regulations have been followed, under UK Government guidance and with approval of the DCMS and the local public health director.

As with all Matchroom events, our priority is the safety and well-being of the players, venue staff and officials.
