  4. TICKET TOUTING/RE-SELLING

    The PDC only sells tickets directly through its official outlets and warns against purchasing from other sources, however official they claim to be.

    The official box offices are:
    Premier League Darts: SeeTickets or venue box office or Thomas Cook Sport
    UK Open: Bolton Wanderers FC box office
    World Matchplay: Winter Gardens box office (Ticketmaster) or Thomas Cook Sport
    World Grand Prix: Citywest Hotel box office or Thomas Cook Sport
    Grand Slam of Darts - Wolves Civic box office
    Players Championship Finals - Tickets sold via Butlins
    World Championship: SeeTickets or viagogo (Official Ticket Exchange) or Thomas Cook Sport

    Other event details to be added as and when tickets go on sale.
    Tickets are sold subject to terms and conditions, which include the agreement that tickets will not be re-sold at face value or greater.
    The PDC will always strive to cancel any tickets found to be on sale through third parties and would advise that purchasers of tickets through this method face being denied entry into events.
    Any ticket holders found selling their tickets will be blacklisted with their details circulated to all PDC official box offices. In certain circumstances, details may be passed to the Police.
    We welcome reports of tickets on sale through third-parties and will always request that the tickets are removed from sale immediately via the legal departments of the websites used.
    DO NOT BUY TICKETS FROM ANY SOURCE OTHER THAN THE OFFICIAL BOX OFFICE. YOU WILL NOT GET IN TO THE EVENT AND YOU MAY BE BLACKLISTED FROM BUYING TICKETS FOR FUTURE EVENTS.

  5. How do I find out ticket information for PDC events?

    Ticket information for all our events is posted in the Tickets section of this website via the link above.

  6. Are you able to provide donations for our charity event?

    Unfortunately due to the number of requests we receive and the lack of suitable available donations, we are only able to offer one pair of tickets per charity for a specific session at the William Hill World Darts Championship or Betway Premier League Darts. Please use our Feedback Form to contact us with full details of your charity event.

  7. How can I get a signed photo of my favourite player?

    PDC Merchandise is available from Burghley Darts, who offer online sales through the Burghley Darts website.

    Alternatively, you can visit their Merchandise Stand at all major PDC events in the UK & Ireland or call 01858 410 890.

  8. How can I purchase PDC merchandise?

    You would need to join the Professional Darts Players Association (PDPA) and full information can be found at www.pdpa.co.uk. From 2011, players must have attended Q School in order to compete in PDC ProTour events as either a Full Member or Associate Member of the PDPA.

    Information on the 2013 Qualifying School, which will be held from January 17-20 can be found at this link.

    This would then make you eligible to enter PDC tournaments such as Players Championship events, UK Open Qualifiers and to compete in major televised tournaments.

    The only UK-based events for non-members would be the Amateur Qualifiers for the UK Open and the Sky Sports Wildcard Qualifier for the Grand Slam of Darts.

    Non-PDPA members resident outside the UK are able to enter Players Championship tournaments held in their local area, either direct by paying an additional entry fee or through a qualifier - full details are available in the Order of Merit Explanation section.
