Gilbert Ulang has received a seven-year suspension. The darts player from the Philippines was found guilty of match-fixing during the 2017 PDC World Darts Championship.

Ulang would have influenced the outcome of the game for gambling purposes. The Filipino lost 2-0 in sets to Kevin Simm in the preliminary round of the 2017 PDC World Darts Championship. The DRA had started an investigation to a possible match-fixing case due to a suspiciously high number of bets during this match.
‘The Slayer’ was interrogated by the disciplinary committee on May 23 and suspended by the Disciplinary Committee three months later. He then received a seven-year suspension. Additionally, Ulang was ordered to pay a contribution to costs in the sum of £2,500.
