Location: Braehead Arena, Glasgow
Scotland and England will do battle on the oche in darts’ inaugural Jocky Wilson Cup at Glasgow’s Braehead Arena on Saturday December 5th.
The Jocky Wilson Cup, named in honour of the Scottish two-time World Champion, will see the two famous international rivals clash in a similar format to Davis Cup tennis.
Ayrshire’s Robert Thornton and Berwick-born Gary Anderson will represent Scotland, taking on the world’s top two players, English pair Phil Taylor and James Wade.
The tournament will feature five best-of-11 leg games on the night, with one point being awarded for victory in each of the singles fixtures and two on offer in the doubles match.
The fixtures will be played as follows:
- Gary Anderson v James Wade
- Phil Taylor v Robert Thornton
- Anderson & Thornton v Taylor & Wade
- Robert Thornton v James Wade
- Gary Anderson v Phil Taylor
The winning team will be the first to reach four points. In the event of a 3-3 draw, the team which hits the most 180’s will be deemed the winner. If this is a tie, the team who hit the first 180 will be deemed the winner.
For those who can’t make it to Braehead on the 5th of December the Jocky Wilson Cup will also be screened live on Sky Sports Two from 7pm-10pm.
Tickets will be priced at £30 for floor seats and £20 for tiered seats.
