"The Unibet Masters is a prestigious event featuring the world's leading 16 players, as the leading names in the sport compete to be crowned as the best of the best.

"The first two years of the event have seen some sensational darts and I'm sure that next year's tournament will be equally competitive and exciting.

"Coming only weeks after the conclusion of the World Championship at Alexandra Palace, this will be an event not to be missed!"
