Live Darts are proud to announce a multi sponsorship package with JBD Sports Agents in 2018.

The deal will incorporate the sponsorship of all JBD exhibition events as well as top 16 ranked PDC professional Darren Webster and the prestigious PDC Fishing Championship.

The partnership is the first of its kind for Live Darts since being established in 2011 and will help the brand become more visible to a global audience.

Jamie Shaw, editor of Live Darts said: "We are thrilled to link up with JBD Sports Agents for this exciting venture.

"JBD Sports Agents are renowned for staging some of the biggest exhibition events in world darts and working with the biggest names in the sport - past and present.

"The partnership coincides with the recent launch of Live Darts TV, which has proved a resounding success, and we hope to bring fans more unmissable, exclusive content from behind the scenes at JBD events across the UK.

"Darren Webster has established himself as one of the most charismatic and rapidly rising stars on the PDC circuit and we are proud to sponsor Darren during such a defining period in his career.

"The PDC Fishing Championship has grown to become one of the most anticipated events on the calendar, bringing together legends from an array of sports to raise crucial funds for charity and we can't wait to get involved."

JBD Chairman Jess Harding said: "The sponsorship package represents a significant move forward in the progress of JBD events.

"We are ecstatic to be associated with such a rapidly evolving company.

"Catena Media and Live Darts recognise our ambition to develop our content and to keep improving the events we currently provide to both the resorts and the tens pf thousands of customers who attend our events throughout the year.

"The link up with Darren Webster is great for his career and with over 200,000 followers on Twitter and with the success of the Live Darts TV show it can only be positive to align ourselves with such an established name in the darts industry.

"It also gives me great pleasure that Catena Media have become the title sponsor for this year's Sky-televised PDC Fishing Championship. Again, Catena recognised the significance of sponsoring such a prestigious championship that consistently raises thousands of pounds for charity."
