The tournament was added to the Snooker Main Tour in 2016 . In addition to four already established tournaments in China, another professional tournament was created after China had become the second most important country in snooker after the country of origin, Great Britain, in the 2000s. Guangzhou in the coastal province of Guangdong was the first venue for a professional snooker tournament.
The four-year contracts were only signed during the 2016/17 season and the first edition was added to the calendar of the professional tour. The first edition in 2016 was conceived as an invitation tournament for the best professional players without evaluation for the snooker world ranking list . With a total prize pool of £ 650,000 and a prize of £ 200,000, it was the third-highest-grossing tournament on the Main Tour and the highest-grossing tournament outside of England. The tournament is sponsored by the real estate company Evergrande , based in Guangzhou.
From 2017, the tournament became a world ranking tournament in the usual Main Tour mode with 128 participants. The prize money rose to £ 700,000 and the winner received £ 150,000.
