The 2021 Champion of Champions is an upcoming professional snooker tournament that will take place between 15 and 21 November 2021 at the Bolton Whites Hotel in Bolton, England. Former champion Murphy is also back in the mix thanks to his runner-up finish in the World Snooker Championship in May.
The defending champion, Mark Allen was due to take part in the event. However, during the English Open, he announced that he had withdrawn from the event for personal reasons and thus will not be defending the title he won in 2020.
The tournament will feature 16 participants who are primarily winners of previous snooker competitions that have taken place since the 2020 Champion of Champions.
