2016 WEBER CUP
WELCOME to the Weber Cup online ticketing system, operated by theticketfactory.com!
As tenpin's annual transatlantic tussle heads into an exciting new era, Matchroom Sport have announced new dates and a new venue for the three-day Europe v America showdown. The dates are Friday 5th to Sunday 7th August and the venue is the state-of-the-art EventCity, adjacent to Manchester’s thriving Trafford Centre.
After Europe's emphatic 17-8 victory in 2015 a revitalised American side will be coming all guns blazing to England as they attempt to get their hands on the famous trophy for the first time since 2012.
Established in 2000, the Weber Cup is the annual USA v Europe tenpin bowling challenge – the Ryder Cup of tenpin. Named after American bowling legend Dick Weber, the man who helped shape modern bowling, the event features two four-man teams competing over three days in a series of singles and doubles matches.
After 16 years of the Weber Cup the overall score currently stands at 8 – 8, a fact that will bring added needle to this August’s proceedings.
With a single lane arena, the Weber Cup is a unique environment for bowlers to compete. Coupled with 500-strong crowds, the tournament represents a tough pressurised proposition for the competitors.
