Germany Gets World Champs

Matchroom Sport can announce that DSF, Germany’s major television sports network, will be showing the 2002 Hasseroder World Pool Championship as 9 x 2 hour highlight shows.

The broadcast starts in September and the show will get a regular airing on Saturdays. Each programme will contain a full day’s highlights culminating in programme nine which will be a two hour show of the Strickland / Bustamante final.

Commented Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn, “Germany is probably the strongest pool nation in Europe and it is fitting that sports fans across the country will get the opportunity to see what was a fantastic World Championship.

“ We always have a lot of German fans in Cardiff and it is great news that the ones who couldn’t make it will get the chance to see the greatest pool tournament in the world.”
