UK Championship History

The UK Championship is one of snooker's most prestigious tournaments and is widely considered the second biggest ranking event behind the World Championship at the Crucible.

Along with the World Championship and the Masters, the UK Championship makes up snooker's Triple Crown and any player winning all three tournaments during their careers becomes an undisputed legend of the sport.

The UK Championship was first staged in 1977 in Blackpool, when Ireland's Patsy Fagan defeated Doug Mountjoy, but has since been held in Preston, Bournemouth, Telford and York's Barbican Centre, where the event currently takes place.

Steve Davis dominated the early years of the event with six titles between 1980 and 1987 before Stephen Hendry took a firm grip on the game with five championships of his own - although he could not stop John Parrott and Jimmy White lifting the trophy in 1991 and 1992.

Ronnie O'Sullivan famously first triumphed in 1993 at the age of just 17, making him the youngest winner of any ranking snooker event, and he also made history in 2001 when thrashing Ken Doherty 10-1 to record the final's biggest margin of victory. Three years later Stephen Maguire equalled that record against David Gray.

Scotland's John Higgins is among the tournament's most successful players with three UK Championship crowns while Welshmen Mark Williams (twice) and Matthew Stevens are also on the roll of honour alongside English quartet Peter Ebdon, Shaun Murphy, Judd Trump and Mark Selby.

In 2005, teenager Ding Junhui became the first player from outside Britain and Ireland to win the event with a 10-6 victory over a 48-year-old Steve Davis, who was competing in his first UK Championship final since 1990, and the Chinese star repeated the feat in 2009 against John Higgins.

Australia's Neil Robertson became the second non-European winner of the tournament in 2013 when he defeated Mark Selby and he surely won't be the last as the contingent of talented snooker players from around the globe continues to grow.

In 2014 O'Sullivan won the UK Championship for the fifth time by beating Judd Trump 10-9 in a thriller although the Rocket decided not to defend his title in 2015 as Robertson went on to defeat Liang Wenbo in the final.

In 2016, Mark Selby became only the ninth player in the history of the event to lift the trophy more than once before O'Sullivan won back-t0-back titles in 2017 and 2018 to become the most successful player in the tournament's history.
