Ronnie O’Sullivan said: “Bringing the shop back to Sheffield is something that means a lot to me as it allows the fans to see a lot of my personal items.
“I have received unbelievable support over the years from fans of the game all over the world and doing something like this enables me to give something back to them and create somwhere they can come and immerse themselves in the world of snooker.
“Sheffield has become somewhat of a second home, so it is the perfect location for the shop. I am looking forward to having the shop open again and being able to offer an even better experience this time.”
