Most sport is currently suspended due to the coronavirus but the PDC is to launch a new tournament featuring darts players in their own homes.

Some of the world’s top darts players will take part in a 32-night competition from the safety of their own homes to give people some live sport to look forward to.

The PDC Home Tour will be launched on Friday April 17th and will give all players with a tour card the chance to feature across 32 consecutive nights.

Four players will be in action each evening in a league format before the 32 group winners will advance to the second phase of the competition.

PDC Chairman Barry Hearn commented: "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."

The competition will be live streamed from 7.30pm on PDCTV to all registered users for free and details of the 16 players competing across the first four nights will be announced soon.
