2018 German Darts Championship Schedule

2018 German Darts Championship Schedule

THE German Darts Championship begins on Friday, with Terry Jenkins set to face Ross Smith in the first round.

The £135,000 tournament is the tenth European Tour event of the year and will see 48 players compete at Halle 39 in Hildesheim across the weekend.

Friday's first round will see 32 qualifiers competing, as nine-time televised finalist Jenkins takes on Smith, whose five-year run as the last player to hit a nine-dart finish on the European Tour was ended by Michael van Gerwen in June.

Round one will also see Unicorn Development Tour Order of Merit leader Ted Evetts meet former Players Championship Finals runner-up Mark Webster, who is starring in his first European Tour event of the year.

The seeded players, led by world number one Van Gerwen, Shanghai Darts Master Michael Smith and World Champion Rob Cross, enter at the second round stage on Saturday.

From the original field of entries, Peter Wright has withdrawn. He is replaced by Steve Beaton as a seeded player, with a fifth Host Nation Qualifier to be found.

The German Darts Championship will take place from August 31-September 2, with streaming available for all PDCTV-HD Subscribers worldwide as well as through a series of bookmakers' websites.
