The Unibet Masters features the world’s leading 16 players, including reigning World Champion Michael van Gerwen, 2013 champion Phil Taylor and James Wade, the recent winner on the event’s second staging in Edinburgh.

In a change on the Professional Darts Corporation’s calendar, The Masters is moving from November to January and from Edinburgh to Milton Keynes.

“We are delighted to be moving to the new ArenaMK in Milton Keynes for the first time,” said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.

“The Unibet Masters is a prestigious event featuring the world’s leading 16 players, as the leading names in the sport compete to be crowned as the best of the best.

“The first two years of the event have seen some sensational darts and I’m sure that next year’s tournament will be equally competitive and exciting.

“Coming only weeks after the conclusion of the World Championship at Alexandra Palace, this will be an event not to be missed!”
