Champions League: One Month To Go

EXCITEMENT is building for the 2018 Champions League of Darts with just one month to go before the start of September's tournament at The Brighton Centre.

The third staging of the Champions League of Darts will take place on the south coast for the first time on September 22-23, televised live on BBC Sport, with tickets still available HERE.

Reigning champion Mensur Suljovic will defend his title against his rivals in the world's top eight players, led by world number one Michael van Gerwen.

World Champion Rob Cross, based in nearby Hastings, will get the chance to step out on his 'home' stage on his Champions League debut, alongside Northern Ireland's Daryl Gurney - the 2017 World Grand Prix champion.

2017 Champions League finalist Gary Anderson is bidding to add to the UK Open and World Matchplay titles he has won already this year, while colourful world number two Peter Wright is aiming to add to this month's Melbourne Darts Masters triumph.

Former Grand Slam of Darts finalist Dave Chisnall and Australian debutant Simon Whitlock complete the eight-player field, having claimed the final two qualifying places at last month's World Matchplay.

"The Champions League of Darts has become a hugely popular event since being introduced to the circuit two years ago," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.

"The concept of the world's top eight players facing off over one weekend is one which works perfectly for BBC Sport, and we feel that The Brighton Centre is an ideal venue to host the Champions League of Darts.

"With the Premier League's growth seeing Brighton replaced on that circuit, we remained committed to taking a televised PDC event to the south coast and we're delighted for this to be this year's Champions League of Darts."
