Bahrain Darts Masters 2023 gets underway with fantastic first day of action at BIC

Bahrain Darts Masters 2023 gets underway with fantastic first day of action at BIC

Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) kicked off this evening one of the Kingdom’s biggest international sporting events this year with the first night of action in the highly anticipated Bahrain Darts Masters 2023, supported by Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority. The spectacular event marks the opening round of the PDC World Series of Darts.

Sixteen of the world’s greatest players, including eight of the game’s juggernauts and another eight of Asia’s best, shone in the spotlight at the beautifully decorated Dome Tent at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”, which was transformed to replicate the electric atmosphere at the famed Alexandra Palace in the UK, best known as the host venue of the World Darts Championship.

Among the sport’s protagonists in action at BIC were recently crowned World Champion and current world number one Michael Smith, who took on Bahrain’s very own Abdulnaser Yusuf.

Reigning World Series of Darts Finals champion Gerwyn Price played against legendary Singapore icon Paul Lim, while world number two Peter Wright locked horns with World Championship qualifier Toru Suzuki of Japan.

Rising star and world number five Luke Humphries made his World Series of Darts debut against Hong Kong’s Man Lok Leung, while five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld, making his first World Series appearance since 2019, took on Japan’s Yuki Yamada.

Former World Champion Rob Cross marked his World Series return against India’s Nitin Kumar, while former Premier League and World Cup of Darts champion Jonny Clayton played Bahrain qualifier Bassim Mahmood.

Dimitri Van den Bergh, winner of two World Series of Darts titles last year, rounded off the first round match-ups against the Philippines’ Alain Abiabi.

They all went head-to-head for the chance to advance to the quarter-finals.

Play continues on Friday night at BIC with the evening’s programme scheduled to start at 7pm. The semi-finals and final will follow right after the round of eight.

Gates will open to fans from 6pm. All those attending will be able to enjoy the event’s incredible atmosphere, with fancy dress encouraged and an extensive range of food and drinks on offer.

Tickets can still be purchased. They start at BD25 for general admission. Premium seating is also available with hospitality options inclusive of food and beverages. All options can be purchased at bahraingp.com or through the BIC Hotline on +973-17450000.

The Bahrain Darts Masters 2023 is being supported by Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority (BTEA). BIC and leading sports promoter CBX teamed up with the PDC to bring the World Series of Darts to Bahrain, in partnership with the BTEA. The event is also supported by DSV and The Gulf Hotel.
