Snooker scores LIVE - Mark Allen vs John Higgins updates from the Masters

John Higgins has urged snooker chiefs to scrap the traditional waistcoat and bow tie dress code.

In recent years, Judd Trump has called for the sport’s authorities to revolutionise the game’s image to bring in a younger audience, and now Higgins has had his say.

Higgins said: “Life is moving forward and I think an attire change should be implemented for more and more events on the tour.

“I know we have the black shirts for the Home Nations [tournaments], but that’s just the same old, same old. Implementing a different attire can help attract a different clientele to the game. I definitely think that could be the way forward for snooker.”
