Harrah’s Resort, Atlantic City to host World Nineball Tour’s US Open Pool Championship for fourth time


World Nineball Tour

US Open 2024

The 47th US Open Pool Championship will be held at Harrah’s Resort, Atlantic City, between Monday, 19 August, and Saturday, 24 August. It will be live on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland in partnership with Caesars Entertainment and the Atlantic City Sports Commission. Spectator tickets are on sale now, and fans will be able to purchase hospitality tickets for the first time in the event’s history.



Held for the fourth time at the New Jersey casino, the US Open is the sport’s most historic tournament and will see defending champion Ko Ping Chung lead the World Nineball Tour’s 128 professional players seeded among a 256-player field aiming to claim the prestigious title.


First staged in 1976, the US Open Pool Championship has crowned illustrious champions over the years, including five-time winners Earl Strickland and Shane Van Boening, Filipino great Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes, and WNT #1 Francisco Sanchez Ruiz.

$300,000 worth of WNT ranking points are on offer across the field, with the winner set to receive $50,000.


The US Open is one of the hottest tickets on the World Nineball Tour, with last year’s final at Harrah’s Resort a complete sell out.


"We are thrilled to be hosting the US Open Pool Tournament for the fourth consecutive year in Atlantic City, NJ. Our seaside destination could not be better positioned to host this unique event in our world-class venues along with ample experiences for athletes and spectators," said Daniel Gallagher, Director of Sports Sales for the Atlantic City Sports Commission.
