DARTS fans will be able to look back on the last 25 years of the William Hill World Darts Championship with the launch of a new book ahead of the forthcoming tournament.

"25 Years of the PDC World Darts Championship" is a comprehensive collection of statistics, memories and images looking back across the history of the sport's biggest tournament.

Since the first match between Dennis Priestley and Jocky Wilson in December 1993, over 1,300 matches involving more than 350 players have been played - with every game detailed in this book.

Colourful quotes and photos add to the celebration in a book compiled using statistics from Sportradar, who have collected live dart-by-dart data from events around the globe as official data partner to the PDC.

The book, compiled by Steve Morgan, also features memories from players, officials and administrators involved in the sport and a foreword from PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.

Darts fans can pre-order now through Amazon and Scratching Shed Publishing, or buy in person from the PDC Merchandise stand in the Fans' Village at Alexandra Palace during the William Hill World Darts Championship.
