PDC Home Tour schedule and results: Wright, Lewis, Jacques, Zonneveld in action
PDC chairman Barry Hearn hopes the new Home Tour will provide some much-needed sporting entertainment amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The tournament takes place over 32 consecutive evenings, with four players in action each night.
The stars will play each other once in matches played over the best of nine legs, with a winner crowned every evening.
“Maybe that will just put a little smile and give us something to look forward to,” Hearn told talkSPORT.
“It is 32 consecutive days as a minimum starting point, three hours a night.
“(It is) a little bit of live sport, which is not going to be anywhere near the standard we are used to watching.

“This is from people’s homes but they are trying and they are good blokes and they will give us 100 per cent effort.
“These guys are sportsmen and they are self-employed. They are not getting a fortune but they are getting an appearance fee because we are experimenting.
“The 32 winners when we go forward, hopefully we can do a bit more.
“It is going to be fun, it is not going to be perfect. But what you will see is real, competitive sport.”
