For the first time fans watching this year’s partypoker Mosconi Cup will have the power to decide which players face off in a singles match.
The players to contest the first fixture of the second day’s play on Wednesday, December 5th will be chosen by a Fans’ Choice vote, conducted at MosconiCup.com. Fans will be able to select one player from each team with the player from each team who receives the most votes going head-to-head in Wednesday’s opening match.
The Fans’ Choice match has no determining factor on other fixtures, meaning the players taking part in the Fans’ Choice fixture can be chosen again that day by their captains. The Fans’ Choice vote will open on Wednesday, November 28th and close at 5pm on Wednesday, December 5th at www.MosconiCup.com. Each voter will be able to vote for one player from each team.
Matchroom Multi Sport COO Emily Frazer said: “The Fans’ Choice match is a great new addition to the partypoker Mosconi Cup and we’re all really excited to see who is chosen to play the match.
“The fans already play a huge role in the partypoker Mosconi Cup and we’re thrilled to be able to give them a real input into the matches played. It’s a great opportunity for supporters to see their favourite player in an extra match and potentially earning a big point for their team.
“As well as the Fans’ Choice we’ve also introduced a £250 cash prize for the best fancy dress each night of the partypoker Mosconi Cup and we’ll have a dedicated team working at the event to ensure fans enjoy a great experience at Alexandra Palace.
“We’ve sold more tickets than ever before and I know the players are really looking forward to playing in the special atmosphere the partypoker Mosconi Cup creates.”
