The long-awaited online match between Raymond van Barneveld and Phil Taylor will take place on Thursday evening.

Van Barneveld and Taylor will play against each other via an electronic soft tip board called Nexus. The darts supplier Target’s board features a built-in webcam and microphone, allowing players to see each other during the match.

As a result of this match, the former rivals hope to raise money for the fight against the Coronavirus.

Barney is playing for the food banks, while The Power is raising money for the NHS. This game can be seen throughout Paddy Power’s social media on Thursday evening from 20:00.

The star studded duo have already played 83 times against each other, but this will be their first online match.

Taylor has often been successful against Van Barneveld in the past. The 16-time world champion has won no less than 61 times, compared to eighteen victories for the five time World Champion in all.
