Darts is one of a few sports thriving during the Covid-19 outbreak.

UK.- While many sports around the globe lay dormant for the foreseeable future, Darts continues to thrive as the PDC Home Tour begins tonight (April 17th).

The Players Darts Championship (PDC) announced news of the 32-player tournament earlier this week.

Players will be at their own board at home and streaming live through a video call.

The action will take place every evening for 32 days, with four players in action each night.

One player who wont be involved is two-time world champion, Gary Anderson, who couldn’t enter the tournament due to a poor WiFi connection.

PDC Chairman Barry Hearn said of the tournament: “It gives me great excitement that we are able to deliver live darts to fans in these unprecedented times.

“The PDC Home Tour will provide a regular supply of live sport to fans, showcasing the talent and unique characters of our players to both existing and new audiences.

“The event will also give players a chance to play competitive darts in this down period in preparation for the return to normal action, whenever that may be.”

Darts fans will be able to watch the Home Tour for free by registering for a PDC TV account.
