Midwest 8-Ball Championships coming to QC

Billiards tournament

The RiverCenter’s south building in downtown Davenport has been transformed into a large pool hall with 80 tables for the Omega Billiards American Cue Sports Alliance Midwest 8-Ball Championships starting Wednesday. 

800 players compete in 15 divisions with over $40,000 in prize money. This is the second year the event has been in the Quad Cities.

Admission is free to the public. 

The Quad Cities has hosted the Iowa ACS Championship seven times since 2005. Last year, the Quad Cities became the host for the winter Midwest 8-Ball Championships for the first time.

“We’re thrilled to serve as host of the 2019 ACS Midwest 8-Ball Championships,” said Dave Herrell, President and CEO, Visit Quad Cities. “800 of the best pool players will compete for four days in the 8-Ball Tournament showcasing their talent at the RiverCenter.  Sporting events are incredibly important for our economic development and branding efforts and we are grateful for the partnership that we have with American Cue Sports in hosting their championship event. In addition, the collaboration among the City of Davenport, the RiverCenter, Downtown Davenport Partnership, Quad Cities Lodging Association, and Visit Quad Cities has been essential in delivering an exceptional experience for the competitors and their respective fans.”
