This edition of the tournament may look different to previous years, but the action will be just as tense as the world’s finest players convene for the showpiece PDC event.

Defending champion Peter Wright is back in the mix and on the hunt to retain his crown, but he will be up against stern opponents throughout the field.

While he hasn’t quite sparkled in 2020, Michael van Gerwen remains the hot favourite to win the title, while Gerwyn Price is also in contention.

Michael Smith, Jose de Sousa and Nathan Aspinall are also among the outsiders to challenge the elite, and anything can happen in this tournament, as proven definitely by Rob Cross in years gone by.

Check out the full details on how to watch the PDC World Darts Championship live on TV and live stream throughout the tournament.

The tournament started on Wednesday 14th December 2020 and runs until Monday 4th January 2021.
