ESPN3 set for US Mosconi Cup coverage

MATCHROOM SPORT can today announce that the 2015 PARTYPOKER MOSCONI CUP will be shown in its entirety in the USA on ESPN3, ESPN’s live multi-screen sports network.

Starting at 2pm EST on Monday 7th December, the Mosconi Cup is the annual Europe v USA 9 ball pool face-off taking place at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas, with Team America looking for their first win in six years.

The ultimate champions will be the team that reaches 11 points first and play runs from Monday 7th concluding in an exciting climax on the afternoon of Thursday 10th December.

Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn said, “We’re excited that once again, ESPN has given sports fans across America the chance to see what is without a shadow of a doubt pool’s greatest show.

“This year’s Mosconi Cup should be a close-run thing and anyone who thinks the USA will be brushed aside should think again. Europe has had it all their own way for a long time now but I think they’ll be in for a mammoth battle.

“The Mosconi Cup is televised pool at its very best and with so much at stake, it is a not-to-be-missed sports event,” he added.
