PDC Home Tour set to be launched from Friday with 32 consecutive days of darts to take place
The PDC have announced that fans will get 32 consecutive days of darts with the launch of the ‘PDC Home Tour’.
As usual they will be using their webcams to take part with live video calls providing the action alongside Dan Dawson commentating on proceedings; with players set to make history as part of the PDC’s first ever home-staged event.
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.
The first round of players will be announced on Wednesday; with the tournament then showcased on PDCTV free for all; as well as on betting sites.
PDC Chairman, Barry Hearn said the following: “Firstly, I would like to thank all our incredible NHS staff who continue to save lives in the most difficult circumstances; we all owe an immense amount of gratitude to our key workers.
“It gives me great excitement that we are able to deliver live darts to fans; in these unprecedented times.
“We’ve spent the last few weeks planning and looking at what is possible, and I’m delighted to be able to present a concept which gives all Tour Card Holders the opportunity to take part.
“The PDC Home Tour will provide a regular supply of live sport to fans; showcasing the talent and unique characters of our players to both existing and new audiences.
“The event will also give players a chance to play competitive darts in this down period in preparation for the return to normal action; whenever that may be.”
