Players Championship Finals on ITV4
The PDC have announced that the Players Championship Finals will be screened live on ITV4 from December 8 2011 to December 11 2011 at the Doncaster Dome.
The news comes after last season’s event was shown only on live internet streams and is another big boost to the popularity of the PDC circuit and darts in general.
“We are delighted that ITV4 have chosen to extend their coverage of our events at the Players Championship Finals,” said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
“With the 32 form players from the PDC ProTour this year playing in Doncaster, the Players Championship Finals promises to be another superb tournament.”
Adrian Lewis (27), James Wade (32) and Phil Taylor (35) are just some of the big names that are currently on the cusp of qualification for the finals. This is largely down to a lack of participation in the PDC Pro Tour events so far this season and they are expected to gain the necessary prize money over the coming months in order to qualify.
Taylor won last season’s Players Championship Finals with an enthralling 13-12 win over Gary Anderson in the final.
