India will host the World Billiards Championship for the next four years, the Billiards and Snooker Federation of India (BSFI) announced yesterday.
The foremost event was held in Bengaluru last year when champion cueist Pankaj Advani had triumphed in the 150-UP format beating Peter Gilchrist of Singapore.
"We are pleased to announce that the BSFI has allotted the World Billiards Championship to India for the next four years. This will be the only World Championship recognized by all as the earlier one being held by the World Billiards Limited will not take place now. The World Billiards Limited will only have ranking events," said secretary S Balasubramaniam.
