The world's best darts players return to New Zealand for the second staging of the Auckland Darts Masters, with this sporting phenomenon being played from June 17-19 at the Trusts Arena.
Following the incredible success of last year's inaugural Auckland Darts Masters, fans will get the chance to see 16 stars competing across three days in the PDC World Series of Darts event.
Reigning champion Adrian "Jackpot" Lewis will be back to defend his title, but his rivals will include World Champion Gary "The Flying Scotsman" Anderson, the legendary 16-time World Champion Phil "The Power" Taylor and the current world number one, "Mighty" Michael van Gerwen.
Colourful Peter "Snakebite" Wright, multiple major winner James "The Machine" Wade, five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld and the fast-emerging Dave Chisnall will be their rivals from the professional circuit in Auckland.
Eight Oceanic qualifiers will also get their chance to compete in Auckland as they rub shoulders with some of the biggest names to ever throw a dart.
The Auckland Darts Masters is the second of six international events in the World Series of Darts following May's Dubai Darts Masters, with further events to be held in Shanghai, Tokyo, Sydney and Perth.
The Auckland Darts Masters will kick off on Friday June 17 with the first round, as the eight PDC stars face off against the Oceanic qualifiers.
The quarter-finals will then take place on Saturday June 18 before the tournament concludes with the semi-finals and final on Sunday June 19 - which was held last year before a packed crowd at the Trusts Arena.
