The 2018 Weber Cup will be staged at Arena MK in Milton Keynes in June.

“We are delighted that the Weber Cup has chosen Arena MK as its new home," said Arena MK's Andy Gibb.

"To have the best bowlers from the USA and Europe competing for the prestigious Weber Cup, is an incredible honour for the Arena and the city of Milton Keynes.

"We are very much looking forward to welcoming bowlers and fans alike to the venue in June.”

Matchroom Sport chairman Barry Hearn added: “The Weber Cup is a highlight of the tenpin calendar and undoubtedly the biggest bowling extravaganza to take place in the UK. Arena MK is a great venue and we look forward to bringing the Weber Cup to a new home.

“Stay tuned for some exciting news regarding the teams. Europe have had the upper hand in recent years but we know how determined USA are to get their hands on the famous trophy again and we are expecting an incredibly close Weber Cup.”

The 2018 Weber Cup will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and networks around the world, further details of which will be available later in the spring.
