World Matchplay Tickets

World Matchplay

The Stan James World Matchplay is a darts tournament, played in a legs format, and is run by the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC). The tournament has been sponsored by gambling company, Stan James since 2000.

The World Matchplay has been played yearly since 1994 at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool. The first ever winner was Larry Butler, who beat Dennis Priestley 16-12, and the current holder is Phil Taylor. It is regarded as the second biggest PDC Tournament, status shown by the fact the whole tournament was sold out within 3 days of the tickets being on sale.

The difference between this and other darts tournaments is that there is no deciding leg - players must win by two clear legs. The first round is usually played over the first to 10 legs, but if the score reaches 9-9, play continues until either player gains a 2 leg lead.
