The 15-day, £1million event features 72 players from all corners of the globe battling it out for the biggest prize in the sport at London's historic Ally Pally venue.

Christmas simply wouldn't be Christmas without the World Championship, and this year, the fortnight feast of tungsten returns bigger and better than ever, with record ticket sales as well as an abundance of in-form players and mouth-watering ties. 

The first round runs from December 13-19, with one preliminary round match to be played on each night, with the winner going on to contest their first round game later in the session.

The second round sees 15 of the 16 ties take place before the Christmas break, with one game kicking off the post-Christmas action on Friday December 27 when the tournament resumes.

The third round is held on December 27 and 28, when the first two Quarter-Final ties will be held.

The second pair of Quarter-Finals will be held on Sunday December 29, with the Semi-Finals on Monday December 30 and the final taking place on Wednesday January 1, as the winner of the record £250,000 first prize and Sid Waddell trophy is crowned.

Preliminary Round - Best of seven legs
First Round - Best of five sets
Second Round - Best of seven sets
Third Round - Best of seven sets
Quarter-Finals - Best of nine sets
Semi-Finals - Best of 11 sets
Final - Best of 13 sets

All sets are the best of five legs. For all matches using the sets format, there will be a tie-break in the deciding set only, where the final set must be won by two clear legs until the score in that set reaches 5-5, when a sudden-death leg would be played.
