LAUSANNE, June 17th – The 2017 World Bowling Tour Finals will be held November 19th at the Reno Bowling Stadium in conjunction with the PBA World Series of Bowling. The event will again be produced by the Professional Bowlers Association and played in conjunction with the PBA World Championships with both events to be shown on ESPN.

The event will occur earlier in the calendar than previous WBT Finals due to the cancellation of the World Bowling Tour events which were scheduled to be held in the Middle East. These events will no longer take place in the final months of 2017 due to the relocation of the World Championships to Las Vegas at a conflicting date. The last events of the 2017 World Bowling Tour will be Malmo Sweden and Bangkok in August and September.

The World Championships will be held from November 24th to December 4th in South Point Hotel Casino, Las Vegas. The Championships was scheduled in Kuwait City in December but was relocated due to unforeseen delays with the construction of the Kuwait Bowling Center. World Bowling Executive Board have instead awarded the 2021 World Championships hosting rights to Kuwait.
