THE PLAYERS TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP grand finals will be staged at Preston Guild Hall, World Snooker has announced.
The event was due to have been held in Bangkok but the governing body was forced to switch venues after civil unrest in the Thai capital.
A field of 32 players will do battle for the £100,000 first prize from March 25 to 29 following eight European Tour events and four on the Asian Tour.
Preston Guild Hall played host to the UK Championship from 1978 to 1997 and has since staged the Grand Prix, LG Cup and Premier League matches.
