Betfred announce charity pledge for World Matchplay maximums

livedartsstaff in PDC Darts News 02 Dec 2019
32 players will compete for a record £700
Betfred will support Parkinson’s UK with charity donations at the World Matchplay based on 180s hit and a special nine-dart challenge.
Betfred are sponsoring the prestigious World Matchplay for a first time this year, with the popular tournament being held at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens from July 20-28.
They will be donating £50 for every 180 scored during the 2019 World Matchplay – and should the 2018 total of 301 be matched or exceeded, Betfred will make an additional £10,000 donation.
In addition, Betfred will be holding a nine-dart challenge for the 32 World Matchplay competitors and donating £1 per point scored by the players.
Parkinson’s UK is a charity leading support and research into the condition, with its celebrity supporters including Sky Sports presenter Dave Clark.
Betfred have previously shown their support for charity during their sponsorship of the World Snooker Championship, where they made a donation per century break scored at the Crucible – which totalled £25,000 at this year’s event.
Betfred are also offering new customers £30 in Free Bets to use on the World Matchplay or any other sport when registering a new account and placing a first sports bet of £10. T&Cs apply | 18+ only | Please Gamble Responsibly
