Nico Kurz was one of the main stars of last year’s PDC World Championship defeating James Wilson and Joe Cullen on debut and he will be back after winning his spot in the German Super League final against Dragutin Horvat.

Kurz is now targeting further scalps despite by his own admission not being after a full-time career in the PDC as of yet with the German instead keeping his job and hoping for further success in front of crowds.

“It’s massive for me to be heading back to Ally Pally, the fairy tale goes on,” said Kurz, who practices every night after working as a public service mechanic through the day.

“Coming back from 8-4 down, surviving match darts and then winning was a massive joy for me. It was a significant win for my career.

“Last year was an incredible experience at Ally Pally, especially for someone who isn’t a ‘full-time pro’ yet.

“Playing the best players on the world in the biggest stage in the world was very special, something I will always remember.

“It’s going to be a new experience being back there and I hope to repeat the performances I put in there last year.

“Long-term, I’m not in a rush to win my Tour Card yet. I hope to qualify for more European Tour events once we get back playing to gain more experience in front of crowds.”
