The PDC World Championship sees the top players from around the globe compete to become the 2020 darts World Champion, and based on the tournaments contested so far this year, it is going to be very tough to call.
The 2020 PDC Darts season opens with the Ladbrokes Masters and closes with the William Hill World Championships which kick off in December. With so much talent on display, it will make for compelling viewing, and you can catch all the action by watching at home on TV or streaming the Professional Darts Corporation live to a mobile device using the options listed in this guide.
2020 PDC World Darts TV Preview
This year will be the 28th edition of the PDC World Darts Tour, where both male and female players will go head-to-head for a chance to play for the Sid Wardell Trophy come the end of the season. There has been somewhat of a power vacuum left behind in recent years since the retirement of 16 time World Champ Phil Taylor. But now there is a new and possibly stronger generation of players coming to the fore, headed by the likes of Dutchman Michael Van Gerwen, Gerwyn Price, Robb Cross and Scotsman Peter Wright. Van Gerwen will be the favourite heading into most tournaments, but so is everyone’s favourite villain, Welshman Gerwyn Price, and Peter Wright, who are likely to be pushing him all the way.
The PDC (Professional Darts Corporation) was first set up in 1992 as a rival to the BDO (British Darts Organisation) by snooker and boxing promoter Barry Hearn. His idea was to create a governing body for darts that meant players could earn a living from the sport. In the beginning, only five tournaments per year were televised and the venues used held capacity crowds of up to 500 people. Now darts has become a popular global sport, with tournament winners taking home six figure cheques and playing games in front of rock concert size audiences. Although the game’s roots sit firmly in the UK, it also has a major following in countries such as Holland, Belgium and Germany. This year’s PDC World Championship will have players from 26 different countries, including Australia’s world number 14 Simon Whitlock and New Zealand’s Benn Robb. So if you’re a fan of arrows, you’ll want to watch or stream all the best moments of this year’s final PDC event, whether you’re at home or out and about.
