The next big PDC event on the agenda comes in the form of the Champions League of Darts. Eight of the world’s best facing off in Brighton live on BBC on September 22-23.

Mensur Suljovic will be back to defend the Champions League title he claimed 12 months ago. The likes of Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson among others will be trying to bring it home themselves.

Barry Hearn spoke about the tournament, as well as how popular it has got. He added that he believes Brighton is the ideal place to host the tournament.

He said: “The Champions League of Darts has become a hugely popular event since being introduced to the circuit two years ago,”

“The concept of the world’s top eight players facing off over one weekend is one which works perfectly for BBC Sport, and we feel that The Brighton Centre is an ideal venue to host the Champions League of Darts.

He added: “With the Premier League’s growth seeing Brighton replaced on that circuit, we remained committed to taking a televised PDC event to the south coast and we’re delighted for this to be this year’s Champions League of Darts.”
