DIAMOND is very excited to be once again working with Matchroom Sport to supply DIAMOND pool tables to not only the Mosconi Cup event but also to the World Pool Masters and World Cup of Pool events.
“DIAMOND is constantly looking for ways to give back to this great sport. I can think of no better way to increase awareness and build excitement for pool than working with a company like Matchroom Sports. The international television markets are demanding high quality pool tournaments and DIAMOND is excited to put our world class tables on display.
“DIAMOND’s long term goal is to build our company into an internationally recognized brand and Matchroom Sport provides the perfect platform” he added.
