THE PROFESSIONAL DARTS CORPORATION will make its first appearance on the BBC as live coverage of the inaugural Unibet Champions League of Darts begins on September 24.

Over two days of competition at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, the world’s top eight players will compete as the tournament makes its first appearance on the PDC circuit. 

Across the two days, 16 hours of live action will be split between the BBC's flagship channels - BBC One and BBC Two. 

The event will see players split into two groups of four kicking off with a round-robin phase. The top two players from each group will then progress to knockout semi-finals and the final, with a £100,000 first prize on offer for the eventual winner.

An expert team has been announced by the BBC, headed by Jason Mohammed who will lead the coverage of the event. Vassos Alexander will be joined by Dan Dawson in the commentary box with Paul Nicholson, Mark Webster and Alan Warriner-Little providing in-depth analysis of each match.

Alexander has regularly been heard across BBC Sport, covering a whole host of events, while Dawson and current professional Nicholson are regular commentators on the PDC's European Tour events. 

Warriner-Little also has vast experience of covering darts, whilst it's a TV debut for top-professional Webster.

Special editions of A Question of Sport and Blue Peter will air in the week leading up to the tournament to mark the beginning of what the PDC hope will be a successful partnership with the BBC.

Furthermore, a special broadcast of Radio 5 Live’s Fighting talk will take place live from the Motorpoint Arena on Saturday ahead of the first round of action. 

The Unibet Champions League of Darts airs on Saturday 24 September and Sunday 25 September.

Tickets, starting from just £15, are still available for the Unibet Champions League of Darts.
