Peter Wright will defend his PDC World Darts Championship with fans returning in the UK for the first time since the pandemic began. Wright spoke to Darts World and summed it up as having a ‘fourth dart’ and that it will make a massive difference for him.
Having the fans back is like having a fourth dart, it would be great to have them back, it will make a hell of a difference. It will be great to have people back supporting the darts, said Wright. It’s been doing my nut in. But I’ve got a little glimpse of the Ally Pally up on that hill, defending my title knowing there’s a crowd there.
This also includes Steve Beaton starting his record breaking 30th campaign against Diogo Portela, while in an exciting tie Jeff Smith will face Irish talent, Keane Barry. In a double session on the 16th, Glen Durrant and Chris Dobey as well as four-time Women’s World Champion, Lisa Ashton will be in action.
