The Players Championship Final & DAN DAWSON
The 2020 Players ChampionshipFinals kick off this Friday, not at its usual home of The Butlin’s Resort in Minehead, which is closed due to the Pandemic, but to THE COVENTRY RICOH ARENA which has been used by the PDC frequently over the past months as it is able to adhere to COVID protocols as it has an Arena and Hotel combined suited to create a ‘Bubble” for the duration of the Event for Players, Officials and Broadcast / PDC Staff. The 64 Players here have successfully qualified by competing in 23 Pro Tour Events staged since February, the vast majority behind closed doors and under the unique conditions forced upon us all by the Pandemic & by prize money accrued making that all important top 64. All credit must go to The PDC and its Staff for seeing these through and of course funding them.
The Event will be live onITV4in the UK from Friday lunchtime with two sessions daily through to the final on Sunday evening. Our man DAN DAWSON will be present to commentate throughout the proceedings & interview Players where appropriate. There are 2 boards on which to play off the Event on Friday & Saturday only with Board two being streamed on PDCTV-HD whilst The Main Stage Board will be broadcast on main stream TV by PDC’s Broadcast Partners worldwide, so plenty of options for The Sports legion of armchair Fans.
This is the last Event prior to THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS which have been confirmed now to run from December 15th to January 3rd at its traditional home of ALEXANDRA PALACE, LONDON and shown live worldwide & hopefully with a restricted crowd. Fingers crossed that will happen.Back to News
