Stage Is Set For BoyleSports World Grand Prix
BoyleSports World Grand Prix
The eyes of darts fans around the world will be on Coventry next week when the BoyleSports World Grand Prix gets under way on Tuesday.
We handed a massive boost to the Professional Darts Corporation earlier this month by signing up as title sponsors once again for two major events this autumn in the World Grand Prix and the Grand Slam of Darts.
World Number One Michael van Gerwen will be the defending champion in the BoyleSports World Grand Prix at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, while Gerwyn Price defends his title in the BoyleSports Grand Slam of Darts which runs from November 14th-22nd in Wolverhampton.
Welcoming BoyleSports’ support, PDC Chairman Barry Hearn said:
“In these challenging times we are ever grateful for the continued backing of BoyleSports. Alongside their sponsorship of the World Grand Prix, BoyleSports are now supporting two of the sport’s biggest events during what is set to be an exciting autumn.
“The Grand Slam of Darts is a unique tournament providing spectacular entertainment and with stars like Peter Wright, Michael van Gerwen and Dimitri Van den Bergh in action, this year’s event promises to be another memorable one.”
Chief Executive Conor Gray added:
“We are delighted to enhance our commitment to sponsorship in the midlands by supporting two of the biggest events on the PDC calendar. The BoyleSports World Grand Prix will be first up in October and we are looking forward with great anticipation to see the world’s best players pitted against each other in Coventry. It’s also thrilling to sponsor the Grand Slam again following on from the success of 12 months ago when we watched Gerwyn Price defend his title so well in Wolverhampton.”
The action gets under way on Tuesday October 6th and can be watched live on Sky Sports.
