This will mark the first time in the event’s illustrious history that replica team shirts will be available to the fans to show which team they support. Each side will have two separate designs created, and the shirts on sale to the public will be exactly the same as those worn by the players when the action gets underway at the Tower Circus on Monday December 1st.

“We’re very much looking forward to working with Nick Bashizi and his team at Universe to help create the team shirts for what will be a new-look Mosconi Cup,” said Matchroom Chairman Barry Hearn.

“We’ve never had team shirts for the fans before but I believe that Universe has the vision to make this happen in a big way, and I’m looking forward to seeing a sea of team shirts in the crowd at Blackpool!”

Nick Bashizi, founder of Universe Clothing commented, “It is an honour for Universe Clothing to be part of the Mosconi Cup. Our goal is to help change the image of pool, and what better way for us to show what we can do than to outfit the best players from both the US and Europe?

“We are very much looking forward to the reactions of both the players and the supporters when they see what we can come up with!” he added.

Shirts will be available for sale in the spring time and will be obtainable from the Universe online store – www.universeclothing.com as well as at various events and at the PartyPoker.com Mosconi Cup itself.

Taking place from Monday 1st to Thursday 4th December at the Tower Circus in Blackpool, the event features two five-man teams representing the USA and Europe competing in a series of singles and doubles matches. The Europeans are defending champions following a one-sided victory in Las Vegas last December.
