We have reached the final of this year’s PDC World Darts Championship with three time champion Michael van Gerwen taking on Michael Smith for a shot at world glory. This is a rematch of the 2019 World Final which Van Gerwen won. Smith is twice a losing finalist and will be desperate for victory.
This is more than a darts match, as the winner of the contest will be promoted to world number one and net themselves a cool £500,000 in the process.
Both have been in scintillating form ahead of the final and this truly could be a match up for the ages. This is a contest that features the two best darts players in the world at the moment.
To reach the final both Smith and van Gerwen made light work of their semi final opponents Gabriel Clemens and Dimitri Van den Bergh – and there is a general feeling that there is more to come tonight.
It is van Gerwen who is the heavy favourite to lift the famous ‘Sid Waddle’ Trophy, but it would be foolish to dismiss the chances of Smith who has won the last three head to head matches.
With millions of fans from all across the world set to tune into this sporting spectacle, this is a night where darts take centre stage.
Gracing the airwaves on British TV is former three time World Champion John Part who will be joined in the commentary box by former World Championship semi finalist Wayne Mardle.
German TV will have the expert views of current PDC player Max Hopp to call upon whilst the all-knowledgeable Elmar Paulke will lead Dazn’s dart coverage across the world.
