Gerwyn Price is hoping to make a piece of history when the Champions League of Darts comes to Leicester next month for the first time.

If a nine-dart finish is hit, £100,000 will be shared amongst the crowd in attendance at the Morningside Arena and he wants to achieve the feat he also achieved at the Czech Darts Open.

‘The Iceman’ believes that if he can it will get the crowd on his side after he has received booing ever since his incident with Gary Anderson at the Grand Slam last November.

“I’d love to hit the nine-darter,” said Price. “I’ve done one on the European Tour against Glen Durrant this year but I’ve missed two or three on TV too, so I’ve had chances and never done it yet.

“It would be great for me and it’s a piece of history, and I’d love to get one of the gold pin badges, but if the crowd gets £100,000 from it too then that’s a bonus.

“If I could do that in the Champions League it might help them get back on my side!

“Every crowd is different and they’ve been getting better, and in Riesa last weekend they were great by the end – probably because I was winning!”
