For the last few decades, the PDC World Championships have become one of the most popular sporting events in the world.
Held over Christmas and New Year each year, the tournament has been held at Alexandra Palace in North London since 2008.
It can often be played in a wonderfully festive atmosphere, with the event attracting up to 3,000 tungsten fans each day with the majority of the days being played over two sessions – one in the afternoon and one in the evening.
Each match is televised across the globe with millions watching all over the world – however, is there anything better than watching the greatest darts players live and at the moment?
If heading down to the World Championships is on your sporting bucket list, here is everything you need to know about getting hold of some World Darts Championship tickets.
World Darts Championship tickets
With the World Championship being one of the most popular sporting events held in the UK, tickets for the event can often sell out quickly. It isn’t just UK fans who attend, with the tournament attracting legions of fans from all across the world.
Up until the semi-finals, the World Championship will have two sessions per day with tickets being able to be purchased for both.
Due to the darts being played on a stage, there are several big screens set up that ensure all the action can be viewed wherever you are sat.
Alexandra Palace is split into two seating categories with fans able to view the action via tables or in stands that are located to the sides and rear of the stage.
A table seat can start from £60 with there also being table access for disabled fans.
Tiered stand seats are priced cheaper than the tables and can often lead to a more restricted view. Seats start from £50 and seats can be taken at the rear or on the sides. For families wanting to attend, there is a family section but those under 18 must be in attendance.
For all of the latest ticketing information, the PDC has an official ticketing site which displays what tickets can be available. The site can be visited here.
Tickets can also be bought via second-party ticketing sites but these tickets can often be more expensive than those bought through official channels. Websites such as Viagogo, Ginsberg and Stubhub all offer tickets for each day and session.
What else do I need to know about the World Championship?
This year’s World Championship will take place between 15th December and January 3rd with there being a small break for Christmas.
As you would imagine with such prize money on offer, all of the game’s biggest stars will be on display in the hope that they will win the biggest prize in darts and with it a cool £500,000.
Favourites for the tournament are likely to be current world number one Gerwyn Price and three-time World Champion Michael Van Gerwyn.
Over 80,000 fans are due in attendance over the three weeks of the tournament and it’s expected that tens of thousands of pints will be sunk throughout the tournament’s duration!
For those not lucky enough to attend, there is no need to worry as the tournament will be beamed all over the world, with millions from all over the globe will tune in over the three weeks of action. The winner will be crowned on January 3rd.
