Belgian prodigy Luca Brecel has been awarded a place in the qualifying rounds of the World Open.

Considered one of the most promising talents in snooker, 15-year-old Brecel recently became the youngest ever winner of the European Championship, beating several experienced players including Holland’s Roy Stolk 7-4 in the final. He is also the current Belgian champion.

Given promises made of talent being 'fast-tracked' to the top, it would have been impossible for World Snooker to ignore Brecel's performances.

The unique new tournament will see 32 amateur players enter the professional qualifying rounds at the World Snooker Academy in Sheffield from August 21-24, when they will be battling to get through to the televised stages at the SECC in Glasgow in September. Two amateur places have been allocated to juniors, with Brecel selected for one those slots.
