Bostin’ Austin at the oche for NHS

7 May 2020

Charlie ‘Bostin’ Austin will step up to oche in aid of the NHS on Sunday as the PDC hosts a special footballers edition of ‘Darts at Home’.

'Darts At Home: Footballers Special' will be played from 2pm on Sunday, May 10 as four household names swap their boots for arrows.

Broadcast live on the PDC's YouTube channel, fans will be able to donate vital funds to NHS Charities Together throughout the event.

The competition is based on the PDC's popular 'Darts At Home' concept, which has seen PDC players around the world playing each other remotely via a live video broadcast.

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 James Maddison and Declan Rice, of Leicester City and West Ham United respectively, will go head-to-head in a highly-anticipated opening game of the tournament.

While Albion’s Austin will face Preston North End's former Scotland midfielder Paul Gallagher in the second game of the tournament.

All the action will be broadcast live on the PDC's YouTube channel, with darts commentator Dan Dawson on hand to run through proceedings, along with live on-screen graphics to enhance the viewing experience.

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 or bullseye.
