Football stars James Maddison, Declan Rice, Charlie Austin and Paul Gallagher will go head-to-head in a special edition of ‘Darts At Home’ to raise money for the NHS.
Darts At Home: Footballers’ Special will be held from 2pm BST on Sunday May 10 as four top footballers swap their boots for arrows.
Broadcast live on YouTube, the event has been organised with the aim of raising vital funds for NHS Charities Together.
Sunday will see four of the PDC’s most high profile fans from the football world take a rest from training as they battle it out to be crowned English football’s top darts player.
England internationals Maddison and Rice, of Leicester City and West Ham United respectively, will go head-to-head in a highly-anticipated opening game of the tournament.
West Bromwich Albion striker Austin, a regular visitor to Ally Pally during the World Championship, and Preston North End midfielder Gallagher will then look to prove their prowess on the oche.
Gallagher was recently provided with a home darts setup and replica darts by world number five Michael Smith.
The tournament will be played in a league format, with all competitors playing each other once over a best-of-three format, and all players beginning each leg on 301 and ending on a double.
