The Champions League of Darts takes the PDC back onto terrestrial TV.
Now in its third year, the Champions League of Darts will be held at The Brighton Centre in – you guessed it – Brighton. The world’s top eight players converge on Sussex in a bid to win the newest televised PDC event. Action starts and ends this weekend, kicking off on Saturday September 22 and finishing on Sunday September 23.
Phil Taylor was the winner of the maiden event in Cardiff. Mensur Suljovic comes into this year’s showing as the defending champion, seeing off Gary Anderson to take the 2017 crown.
The BBC picked up the option to televise the Champions League of Darts in 2018, just as it did in 2016 and 2017. Saturday afternoon’s action will be shown on BBC1, with every other session broadcast live on BBC2.
