We take a look at the key points to note ahead of the 2020 Betfred World Matchplay final between Gary Anderson and Dimitri Van den Bergh.

Gary Anderson v Dimitri Van den Bergh stats

The 2020 World Matchplay final will see one of the sport's all-time greats take on one of the game's brightest young stars at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes.

Van den Bergh, 26, is the first debutant to reach the final since James Wade in 2006, having enjoyed a dream week which has seen him claim the scalps of Nathan Aspinall, Joe Cullen, Adrian Lewis and Glen Durrant.

Anderson, a World Matchplay champion in 2018, is hoping to become only the fourth player to win the event two or more times – Phil Taylor (16), Michael van Gerwen (2) and Rod Harrington (2).

The Scot would also become only the third player to win the World Championship and World Matchplay twice apiece, joining Taylor and Van Gerwen.
Van den Bergh has moved up to a career-high 16th on the PDC Order of Merit, and should he win the event will jump to 12th.

Anderson is ninth as it stands and would move to seventh should he win the event.

If the match is played over 29 legs or more, this year's tournament will break the record for the most legs played across a World Matchplay.

Title sponsor Betfred make Anderson a slight favourite for the Phil Taylor Trophy at 8/15, with Van den Bergh rated a 6/4 chance to claim glory.

The final of the 2020 Betfred World Matchplay will start at 2030 BST, broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK, through the PDC's worldwide broadcast partners including DAZN and RTL7, and on PDCTV for Rest of the World Subscribers.

The 180 total for the tournament currently stands at 329, one less than the 2019 final total of 330.

Should one more 180 be hit in the final, this will trigger a £10,000 bonus from Betfred to The Stroke Accociation, in addition to £50 donated to the charity per 180.

This currently stands at £16,450 from 329 180s, plus £4,982 raised during the nine-dart charity challenge which players and referees have taken part in. With the expected £10,000 bonus, the total donation for The Stroke Association will be over £31,000.
