The PDC as part of one of their many items of content during the lack of darts as a result of the Coronavirus have launched a Walk On World Cup.

This idea pits not only the legendary walk-ons such as Wayne Mardle and Devon Petersen together but most active players in the top 64.

Polls are released on Twitter and fans have a certain amount of time to pick their winner who will then advance to the next round.

The first day saw the likes of the aforementioned Mardle and Petersen through as well as Phil Taylor and Gary Anderson with the next round set for later today (Saturday).
