The 2017 Superstar Online World Seniors Championship welcomes the Nexus Group


The Super Star Online World Seniors Snooker Championship, starting on Tuesday 21st March, are delighted to welcome THE NEXUS GROUP as a partner to the event.

Founded in 2008 by Colin Thompson, the Nexus Group is a specialty insurance organisation known as an MGA (Managing General Agent) on a dynamic growth path, concentrating on niche classes of business and delivering excellent service and cutting edge products.

Unlike nearly all other multi-product MGAs, Nexus is truly independent and can justifiably describe itself as a ‘virtual insurance company’. Trading out of offices in London, France, Italy, Hong Kong and Ireland, the group employs over 110 people and has become one of the largest and most profitable independent specialty MGA's in the UK, with a client base in the region of 500,000 policy holders. As well as the event featuring Nexus branding the 1991 World Champion John Parrott will wear the Nexus logo during the event.

The World Seniors Snooker Championships will be shown exclusively on Superstar Online, with every match live. The Winner of the title will receive £10,000 plus a place in the 2017 World Professional Snooker Championships.

Jason Francis, creator of the event, said

“I knew within a minute of speaking with Colin Thompson that they were exactly the sort of partner we were looking for. Nexus are a hugely successful insurance company with some really dynamic people. We hope this will be the start of a long term relationship where the Snooker Legends can showcase their brand globally.”

Colin Thompson, Founder and Executive Chairman of Nexus, commented:

"The Nexus Group is delighted to be at the heart of the 2017 World Seniors Snooker Championships. It's an exciting new avenue for us and we are confident that our involvement with this year's Championships with its wide audience appeal will create new opportunities for all parties."

The World Seniors Championship takes place at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe from 22nd to 25th March. The Golf Day and Launch Dinner take place on Tuesday 21st March
