A new 20% discount has been announced by the English Table Tennis Association for tickets to the Liebherr Men’s World Cup at the Echo Arena from 28th-30th September 2012.

From noon today (Tuesday 29th May) to Tuesday 31st July discounted tickets will be available at the Echo Arena box office when quoting the code: MWCWEB3107 online at echoarena.com or over the phone on 0844 8000 400.

The tournament which arrives in Liverpool this September 28-30th, brings with it many of the world’s best players – including the soon-to-be crowned London 2012 Olympic Champion.

The Echo Arena will play host to the first major table tennis event after the Olympics and for those of you who missed out on tickets for the event at ExCeL, or who couldn’t travel to London for the Games, this is the perfect opportunity to watch the cream of the crop on your own front door.

A trip to Merseyside will take you into one of the highest profile events on the International Table Tennis Federation’s calendar for the first time that England has ever hosted the Men’s World Cup.

The last time a major international tournament was held in the North-West was 15 years ago when Jan-Ove Waldner won the World Championship in Manchester. Who knows when the next event of this nature will hit our shores?

The competition, a solely singles tournament for men, consists of an elite group of 19 players made up from Olympic and World Champions as well as Continental Champions, a home nation wildcard and the highest ranked international stars.

The event has a massive expected prize fund of £150,000 and will conclude an exciting 12 months for English table tennis, which included the ITTF Pro Tour Grand Finals, Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Last time in Paris, France’s wildcard Adrien Mattenet shocked both Vladimir Samsonov (BLR) 4-3 and Chuan Chih-Yuan (TPE) 4-2 in his group to reach the quarter-finals. A feat the English wildcard will hope to emulate this September in Liverpool.

So why not get involved by securing your tickets from the Echo Arena box office at echoarena.com or 0844 8000 400, using the discounted code offer MWCWEB3107 to secure your 20% discount.
