The World Series of Snooker was played for the first time in the 2008/2009 season. It was a series of four non-ranking tournaments spread over Europe, where top professional players performed against regional wildcard players. The series consisted of four tournaments plus a Grand Finals for which the winner earned 50,000.

The winner of each tournament received five points, the runner-up three and losing semi-finalists one each. These points determined the seeding positions for the Grand Final, where Shaun Murphy defeated John Higgins 6–2.
