“This is an exciting time in pool as international acceptance of American pool increases, the demand for high quality television coverage of these pool tournaments increases. Couple that with today’s hottest professional pool players and that is a match made for a Diamond table.
“The Diamond brand is very strong in the US market and it is time to expose this world calibre pool table to international markets and Matchroom Sport provides the perfect platform for Diamond to truly build international branding,” he added.
