  • 03-JUN-2024

In continued support of the Macao SAR Government's "1+4" appropriate diversification development strategy and to further promote the integration of sports and tourism, Wynn hosted the "Snooker Legend and Rising Star Exhibition Game" at the Wynn Macau Grand Ballroom today (May 31). Seven-time World Snooker Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan played against Chinese snooker sensation Si Jia Hui, a semi-finalist at the 2023 World Championship. After an intense match, O'Sullivan defeated Si 2-1 to win the exhibition game.

Speaking after the exhibition game, international snooker superstar "The Rocket" Ronnie O'Sullivan said: "I would like to thank the organizer for inviting me back to Wynn again. I really enjoyed playing against Si Jia Hui and meeting new snooker fans in Macao. I can't wait to be back in Macao once again to play even more exciting matches with other world-class snooker players soon."

Wynn also hosted a special exhibition game dinner in the grand ballroom, where guests enjoyed a sweet surprise of cleverly crafted snooker-inspired desserts. A live band performed a medley of hit songs throughout the dinner, and to add even more excitement to the evening, Wynn hosted a lucky draw for guests to win snooker balls, cue sticks and jackets – all personally autographed by celebrity snooker players.

Wynn has always actively promoted Macao as a "City of Sports" by introducing top-tier sporting events and cultivating a local sports culture infused with the unique elements of Macao. By bringing world-class exhibition games of a prestigious "Masters" level to Macao for both locals and tourists to experience first-hand, Wynn aims to promote the development of local sports, advance the collaborative development of the city's tourism and leisure sports industries, promote moderate economic diversification, and create new opportunities for solidifying Macao's role as a World Center of Tourism and Leisure.
