Line-ups and Fixtures announced for PDC Home Tour Nights One-Four
The line-ups and fixtures have been announced for the first iteration of the PDC Home Tour which begins on Friday.
Reigning World Champion Peter Wright will be the headline name on the first night of action making history in the process. Wright will take on Peter Jacques in the opening game of the PDC Home Tour, with former World Championship semi-finalist Jamie Lewis and Dutch youngster Niels Zonneveld also playing in Group One.
Gerwyn Price will headline Group Two in a stacked line-up which includes Luke Woodhouse, Ted Evetts and Rowby-John Rodriguez. Dave Chisnall will play on Sunday in a line-up which also features Scott Waites, Jan Dekker and Jon Worsley.
Then finally the first female Tour Card holder Lisa Ashton will face off against Ross Smith, Mickey Mansell and Geert Nentjes on Monday April 20.
All Tour Card Holders have been given the opportunity to play in the PDC Home Tour ; which will see four players in action every night; so it gives audiences chances to see faces new and well known.
A nightly league format will see all four competitors play each other once in matches played over the best of nine legs; with a winner crowned each night who will then go onto the next phase of the competition.
This means that 32 players will battle it out from the second round onwards; with a winner crowned from there. It will be shown on PDCTV for free with betting sites also showing the action in full in a large innovation announced by the PDC.
