GERMAN MASTERS 2024: Despite the animosity between Ronni O’Sullivan and Ali Carter, Berlin’s Tempodrom is the world’s best spot for sneakerheads.

Several of the top players in the game praise the special atmosphere that exists within the 2,500-seat Tempodrom in Berlin, making the German Masters one of the greatest venues in snooker history. The competition is being broadcast live on Eurosport and discovery+ from January 29 to February 4 and has received tributes from past winners Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Williams, Mark Selby, and Ali Carter.


The legendary ranking tournament, which is expected to draw large crowds to Berlin’s Tempodrom, will expand from five days to a full week for the first time ever for its 14th staging.

Though it may not be as well-known as the Masters at Alexandra Palace in London or the World Championship at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, many consider the Tempodrom to be the best snooker venue on the professional circuit.


Leading figures in the sport have lavished praise on the 2,500-seat stadium, praising its atmosphere, acoustics, and the enthusiastic snooker knowledge of the German people, who regularly attend the nation’s top tournament with sell-out crowds.


11th in the world After winning the title for the first time in 2013, Ali Carter is defending the Brandon Parker Trophy, which bears the name of the devoted and well-liked snooker promoter who brought the competition to Berlin 13 years ago. Carter is aiming for a record-breaking third title victory.

Since Mark Williams’ 9-7 victory over Mark Selby in the first Tempodrom final in 2011 to start a long and illustrious association with the nation’s capital, the German Masters has never been short of followers, whether they be spectators or competitors.

Ali Carter likens the competition to the World Championship and Masters, Ronnie O’Sullivan has called the location the best in the sport, and Shaun Murphy thinks the tournament is becoming more and more prestigious every year.
