The Professional Darts Corporation's World Series of Darts is to visit Melbourne for the first time this year, with Hisense Arena to stage the Melbourne Darts Masters from August 18-20.
The World Series of Darts, introduced in 2013, sees the sport's biggest names competing in six worldwide tournaments each year ahead of a season-ending World Series of Darts Finals.
The concept's continued growth will see Melbourne stage a World Series of Darts tournament for the first time in August as part of an Oceanic treble-header, televised live on Fox Sports.
The Melbourne Darts Masters will see eight leading PDC players joined by eight Oceanic Representatives, with play on the opening night on Friday August 18 featuring the first round matches.
Saturday's play features the four quarter-finals, with Sunday's decisive Finals Day seeing the semi-finals and final as the inaugural champion is crowned.
"It's hugely exciting for us to be able to take the World Series of Darts to Melbourne," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
The line-up of competitors for the Melbourne Darts Masters will be confirmed in due course.
We recommend that all children under 14 years of age be accompanied by a responsible adult.
