The 2015 Betfred World Snooker Championship was a professional snooker tournament that took place from 18 April to 4 May 2015 at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England. It was the 78th edition of the World Snooker Championship and the last ranking event of the 2014/2015 season. Betfred sponsored the event for the first time in three years, having previously sponsored the tournament from 2009 to 2012. The final was officiated by Olivier Marteel, who became the first Belgian to do so.
Mark Selby was the defending champion, but he lost 9–13 in the second round to Crucible debutant Anthony McGill. Selby fell to the Crucible curse, becoming the 16th first-time champion who was unable to defend his title at the venue.
A 50–1 outsider at the start of the tournament, Stuart Bingham defeated Robbie Williams 10–7 in the first round, Graeme Dott 13–5 in the second round, Ronnie O’Sullivan 13–9 in the quarter-finals, Judd Trump 17–16 in the semi-finals, and Shaun Murphy 18–15 in the final to win the first world title of his 20-year professional career. At the age of 38, Bingham became the oldest first-time world champion since Walter Donaldson in 1947, and the oldest player to win the title since Ray Reardon in 1978.
The tournament set a new record for the most century breaks made at the Crucible, with 86. The previous record of 83 centuries was set in 2009
