About this programme
The 2013 PDC World Championship. Day one of the tournament at Alexandra Palace in London, featuring the opening first-round contests, including Paul Nicholson v Co Stompe and Adrian Lewis v Gino Vos, and a preliminary match. Reigning champion Lewis returns to defend his title and aim for a third consecutive victory in the competition after lifting the trophy in 2011 and 2012 with wins over Gary Anderson and Andy Hamilton respectively. This season sees the trophy renamed after commentator Sid Waddell, who died earlier this year.
