Online casino brand 21.co.uk will title sponsor the 19th annual Weber Cup, the Europe vs. USA tenpin bowling showdown to take place at Arena MK, Milton Keynes from June 15-17, live on Sky Sports.
Europe have won the last five 21.co.uk Weber Cups but America have brought back two legends of the lane – Chris Barnes and Tommy Jones – as they attempt to wrestle the famous trophy back from the hosts.
Played over five sessions, there are a maximum of up to 37 matches – a mixture of singles, doubles and team ‘Baker’ matches – with the first team to 19 wins taking home the trophy.
Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn commented; “We are delighted that 21.co.uk will title sponsor tenpin bowling’s biggest event. Team USA are determined to take the trophy back to America again, but Europe are on a hot streak at the 21.co.uk Weber Cup and have a team that knows how to win this tournament.
“The 21.co.uk Weber Cup lane is the most famous in bowling, with seating down either side creating an atmosphere the tournament is famed for. USA think they’ve got the right formula this year – it’s going to be a great weekend of tenpin action in Milton Keynes.”
Mark Good CEO of Rocket X said “It’s a great pleasure for 21.co.uk to sponsor such a prestigious global event in the world of ten pin bowling. This weekend promises to be a fantastic display of the very best talent and I can’t wait to see our two leading entertainment brands align for the 21.co.uk Weber Cup 2018″
The European team will be captained by England’s Dominic Barrett. He is joined by countryman Stuart Williams and Martin Larsen and Jesper Svensson, both of Sweden.
Team USA sees Chris Barnes return as captain, with Tommy Jones set for a record 11th appearance in the event. Fan favourite Kyle Troup is back, with 21-year-old PBA Tour rising star Anthony Simonsen making his 21.co.uk Weber Cup debut.
The 21.co.uk Weber Cup is tenpin bowling’s answer to of golf’s Ryder Cup as two four-man teams from Europe and the USA compete over three days in a series of singles, doubles and baker format matches.
The 21.co.uk Weber Cup will be staged over five sessions – 6.30pm Friday 15th and 12.30pm and 6.00pm on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th. The tournament will be produced by Matchroom Sport television and broadcast live on Sky Sports as well as other channels around the world.
