For the first time, World Snooker have announced a dress code for spectators with tickets entering the arena.
They said: "Sorry football fans. The event promoter requests that no sportswear or team sport shirts a worn."
Fans will be refused entry and they will have to find alternative clothing if something is deemed unsuitable.
Brian Talbot, who has been attending the Crucible since 1989 and is usually seen sat in the front row, told the Coventry Telegraph the decision was "a load of rubbish".
He said: "[World Snooker chairman] Barry Hearn is an absolute disgrace, he wants to bring the sport in line with the darts. I may as well go in dressed as Snow White or a Smurf.
"He's a dinosaur and he's ruining the sport that I love."
O'Sullivan said it was "laughable" and added: "You pay the money for your ticket, you should be allowed to wear what you want.
"At the darts they seem to be walking around in Superman outfits."

No sportswear. Does that include the cringey snooker t shirts. Which I guess they sell in the foyer.

When Embassy sponsored it you could buy a season ticket for the whole tournament, thats stopped in recent years but they still honour the ones who purchased them until the decide to stop buying them.

Hence you see Mr Coventry City in the same seats every year, also the old grey haired bloke who sits by the partition (who comes every year from Australia) and the Denis Law lookalike who sits next to him.

"In addition, World Snooker will no longer be offering season tickets or priority booking to fans who have been offered these benefits in the past. This is to ensure fair opportunities to everyone and to give more fans the chance to enjoy the Crucible experience for the first time."

well I'm going to be controversial and say that if the players are expected to wear evening wear, it would be appropriate for the fans to be semi- respectable - I always found the footy tops a bit chavvish for the worlds - I go the snooker a fair bit and wouldnt feel right wearing the mighty TRFC shirt
