Darts arrives at Etihad Stadium
Thursday 04 Jul 2013
The UK’s largest indoor sport is coming to Melbourne with the Victory Room at Etihad Stadium set to host the inaugural Melbourne Darts Invitational Challenge on Friday August 16, 2013.
The night will star two of the world’s best players, Simon ‘The Wizard’ Whitlock and Paul ‘The Asset’ Nicholson, taking on local champions before duelling each other.
The Wizard has won over 50 tournaments around the world, including last year's European Championship. A successful and iconic figure of the sport, Whitlock is regarded as the best player to come from the Southern hemisphere. He also has a reputation for taking out the maximum 180 shot more than anyone else on the circuit!
Nicholson is an entertaining and talented professional. Known as 'The Asset', this charismatic performer cites fitness and preparation as key factors in producing his best performance.
Watched by millions worldwide, Darts is an electrifying and entertaining sporting spectacle.
Please note this event is now SOLD OUT.
On Monday 12 August, The Wizard and The Asset set a new world record of 5.235m for the longest distance to throw a bullseye.
