Michael van Gerwen will kick off his campaign at the World Series of Darts Finals tonight as he aims to regain his title in front of his home crowd.

He will take on a familiar foe in Gerwyn Price who he has an excellent record over and he said that it may about Van Barneveld’s final event in the Netherlands but that he hopes to claim the title himself in front of his home crowd.

“Of course it always hurts to lose, but credit to Ross Smith he played a great game to beat me,” said Van Gerwen.

“But the tournaments are coming thick and fast this time of year which is a nice thing because I have the chance to win the next one.

“This weekend will be a lot about Raymond’s last PDC event in the Netherlands but I have a job to do also and I hope to lift that title in front of a phenomenal crowd in Amsterdam.”
