Snooker - World Championship

Since 1977 this event has become synonymous with the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England. The venue which has become Snooker's version of Wimbledon. Before the Championship found its celebrated home, it had suffered a tortuous history of marathon matches at small venues with limited media coverage.
The move to Sheffield saw the eventual adoption of a 32-man tournament played over 17 days with daily extensive television broadcasts.
