The 2017 edition of World Bowling Tour Finals will be held on November 19th at the Reno Bowling Stadium, USA in conjunction with the PBA World Series of Bowling. The event production of this edition will again be taken care off by the Professional Bowlers Association. The event will be played in conjunction with the PBA World Championships with both events to be shown on ESPN.
The finals will occur earlier in the calendar than previous WBT Finals due to the cancellation of the World Bowling Tour events which were earlier scheduled to be held in the Middle East. This year change the schedule of these events and these 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 Bowling World Championships will be held from November 24th to December 4th in South Point Hotel Casino, Las Vegas. Earlier, the Championships was allocated to Kuwait City to be scheduled in December but was relocated due to unforeseen delays with the construction of the Kuwait Bowling Center. In a bid to compensate the Kuwait Bowling Center, the World Bowling Executive Board have instead awarded the 2021 World Championships hosting rights to Kuwait.
