BoyleSports sponsors PDC’s World Grand Prix

Irish bookmaker BoyleSports has agreed a three-year deal with the Professional Darts Corporation to title sponsor its World Grand Prix event.

The competition takes place at the Citywest Convention Centre in the Irish capital, Dublin, and BoyleSports’ agreement covers the editions running from 2019 to 2021.

The event – unique for its double-start format – was established in 1998 with this year’s dates running from October 6-12.

Dutchman Michael van Gerwen claimed his fourth World Grand Prix title last year, and has won the event every two years since his maiden triumph in 2012.
