Blackpool's Winter Gardens is on course to welcome back darts fans for July's popular Betfred World Matchplay following confirmation that the event is being planned for a capacity crowd.
The Covid-19 pandemic meant that the prestigious World Matchplay, usually attended by thousands of fans at the Winter Gardens, had to be held behind closed doors in Milton Keynes.
However, with restrictions continuing to ease across the UK, the Professional Darts Corporation have revealed their hopes or the event to be able to welcome a 2,000 crowd for each of ten sessions from July 17-25.
The 32 qualifiers will be confirmed following Players Championship 20 on 8th July.
All hotels for players will be sent directly.
