2016 Mosconi Cup – Bergen Open added to Euro list

Additional event for European qualification
ANOTHER TOURNAMENT has been added to the Official Mosconi Cup Team Europe Ranking list as the Bergen Open is included as a Level Three event. Now in its sixth year, the Bergen Open takes place from 24th to 26th June in the beautiful Norwegian coastal town and can boast the likes of Niels Feijen, Ralf Souquet and Efren Reyes as previous winners.Mosconi Cup 2016 XIII

That maintains the number of events in the European ranking list at 12 and the tournaments are grouped into three levels. The highest is comprised of three WPA international events; the second is five Euro Tour events and the last is four smaller open events. The maximum number of points awarded for winning a qualifying tournament is 80 for a Level One event and the minimum given for a victory would be 28 for a Category Three event.
There will be three separate ranking lists with the top player in each ranking gaining an automatic spot on Team Europe for the 23rd annual Mosconi Cup which takes place at the Alexandra Palace, London from 6th to 9th December.
The first ranking will comprise the nine European events – ‘European Ranking’; the second will be the three WPA international events – ‘World Ranking’; the third will be made up of all 12 events – ‘Combined Ranking’.
