Statement WCBS-IBSF-WPBSA June 27, 2018

The WCBS hosted a meeting on June 21st in Lausanne, attended by members of the WCBS Board, WPBSA Chairman & Secretary, IBSF President and Vice President and by GAISF as an Observer.

The outcome from the meeting was positive and progress was made resolving some misunderstandings between the two snooker groups, IBSF and WPBSA. Much discussion took place between those two parties with both sides able to express their objectives and desires.

Talks will continue between the two groups and the WCBS is hopeful that the two organisations can resolve their differences by the end of July, ahead of the WCBS EGA that has been called for the 16th August to decide upon snooker membership within the WCBS.

Statement issued jointly by,

WCBS (World Confederation of Billiards Sports)

WPBSA (World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association)
