Dutch Darts Masters - PDC: Preview

The World Series of Darts heads to the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam for the high-class Dutch Masters, with a host of home players hoping to impress their legion of fans.

Eight of the PDC's top performers are joined by eight home challengers and it promises to be an entertaining event.

Michael van Gerwen returns to action after undergoing surgery on an arm injury and MVG will be looking to follow up his Premier League victory earlier this month with another success.

Mighty Mike is part of the PDC's elite eight, while the Dutch challenge from outside that pack is headed by Danny Noppert and Dirk van Duijvenbode.

When is the Dutch Darts Masters?

The Dutch Darts Masters starts on Friday, 24th June 2022 and is played over two days, finishing on Saturday, June 25th.

Where is the Dutch Darts Masters?

The tournament takes place at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. The venue is well-used for concerts and gigs and the likes of Elton John, Adele and Rod Stewart have entertained the crowds in the Dome.

More recently the arena played host to the 2022 UEFA Futsal Championship.

Can I watch the Dutch Darts Masters?

The entire event will be streamed live on PDC TV via the PDC website. ITV will pick up pictures at the quarter-final stage and their coverage gets under way at 2pm on Saturday.

How many times has the Dutch Darts Masters taken place?

This is the first time the tournament has been held and it's a new addition to the PDC's World Series events. In a bid to grow the game globally, the organisation sends eight of its top pros around the world to compete against the best of the local talent.

Recent events have been held in the US and Denmark, but this competition is slightly different as the Netherlands is already a hotbed of darting talent.

The elite eight are likely to face a stiff home challenge from the likes of Danny Noppert and Dirk van Duijvenbode.

Who is the favourite for the Dutch Darts Masters?

Michael Smith is the 4/1 favourite, but it's a competitive field, with Van Gerwen (5/1) and Jonny Clayton (9/2) right behind Bully Boy, whil there are seven players at 12/1 or shorter.

Drawing conclusions

Smith and Dimitri van den Bergh have claimed the opening two World Series titles, but with the standard of the local heroes so high in Amsterdam, there is no guarantee that one of the eight PDC's chosen few will lift the crown.

Peter Wright looks to have been handed an extremely tough first-round match against Van Duijvenbode and Van Gerwen is unlikely to have things all his own way against compatriot Noppert.

Gerwyn Price has struggled to reach his best in recent months and the Iceman was beaten in the final of the World Cup, alongside partner Clayton earlier this month. He gets his Dutch Masters campaign under way against the capable Vincent van der Voort.

Fallon Sherrock certainly has a chance of progressing though the opening round against the erratic Maik Kuivenhoven.

The Queen of the Palace put up a good show when beating Darius Labanauskas and running Bully Boy close in the Nordic Masters a couple of weeks ago.
