Welsh duo to lead off

By Editorial Staff 21/12/2021

The post-Christmas schedule of play for the William Hill World Darts Championship third round has been confirmed.

The remaining 32 players will continue their battle for the Sid Waddell Trophy when the tournament resumes on Monday December 27, with the third round spread across three packed days of action.

The first day back after the three-day Christmas break will see reigning champion Gerwyn Price continue his title defence, with 2021's most successful player Jonny Clayton also in action.

Three-time winner Michael van Gerwen and world number two Peter Wright will be the star attractions on Tuesday December 28.

The remaining four third-round ties will take place on Wednesday December 29, the last of which will see Gary Anderson play Ian White before the fourth round begins with two matches.

The tournament is being broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK, through the PDC's worldwide broadcast partners including DAZN and RTL7, and on PDCTV (excluding UK and Netherlands-based subscribers).
