One of the most popular events returns to Alexandra Palace this December. The William Hill PDC World Darts Championship will be held in Great Hall from 13 December with the final on 1 January. This prestigious dart tournament has been held at Alexandra Palace since 2006.
Last year we bade farewell to darts legend Phil “The Power” Taylor, who fittingly made his last appearance in the final but was unable to make it a fairy-tale finish and lost 7-2 to Rob Cross who was making his debut in the competition having only turned professional 11 months earlier.
The World Darts Championship is unlike any other event, there is a constant cacophony of chanting by the crowd, some songs completely unrelated to darts but are more at home on the football terraces! In addition, many fans come in fancy dress and it goes without saying that plenty of alcohol is consumed throughout the course of the tournament.
This tournament sells out fast, tickets go on sale at the end of July, with over 65,000 available and they will be snapped up quickly even though nobody knows who will be playing! If you wish to see whether Rob Cross will retain his title or whether the Dutch Master, Michael van Gerwen will once again prevail or if it will be another newcomer, you do not have much time to buy your tickets.
Tickets will go on Priority Sale to PDCTV-HD Annual Subscribers from 10am on Monday July 23.
Tickets will go on General Sale from 10am on Monday July 30.
