The schedule has been confirmed for the German Darts Masters which is set to take place over Friday and Saturday this weekend in the second staging of the event and the first in Cologne.
Mensur Suljovic is the defending champion and he leads a star studded line-up on the first night of action which sees eight ties in the first round. Rob Cross against Max Hopp and Michael van Gerwen versus Martin Schindler are the two ties of the round though with the partisan crowd expected to massively get behind the best Germany has to offer.
Raymond van Barneveld will also take in his farewell tour and it doesn’t get much tougher for the former multiple World Champion with a tie against the impressive Gabriel Clemens.
Also in action include the likes of James Wade and Gary Anderson; as well as Peter Wright who is always a fans favourite over in Germany. Like alluded to it will be played over two days with the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final all taking place on Saturday night.
