Online investment provider and stockbroker AJ Bell has agreed a deal to become the title sponsor of the 2017 Professional Squash Association’s Squash World Championships.
The agreement covers both the men’s and women’s tournaments, which will take place in Manchester, England, from December 9-17.
This year will mark the first occasion that both the men’s and women’s contests will offer equal prize money, with the winner of each event to take home more than £45,000 (€52,500/$58,300) each.
AJ Bell previously served as title sponsor of the 2013 Championships, which also took place in Manchester. England’s Nick Matthew (pictured) won the men’s event.
