This year the World Matchplay Sponsors will also support a charity close to the heart of the PDC.
BETFRED are to support Parkinson’s UK with charity donations at the Betfred World Matchplay based on 180s scored and a special nine-dart challenge.
Leading bookmakers Betfred are sponsoring the prestigious World Matchplay for a first time this year, with the popular tournament being held at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens from July 20-28.
They will be donating £50 for every 180 scored during the 2019 World Matchplay – and should the 2018 total of 301 be matched or exceeded, Betfred will make an additional £10,000 donation!
In addition, Betfred will be holding a nine-dart challenge for the 32 World Matchplay competitors, and donating £1 per point scored by the players.
Watch out for videos of players undertaking the nine-dart challenge throughout the Betfred World Matchplay on social media – check out the Betfred Twitter and Facebook pages.
Parkinson’s UK is a charity leading support and research into the condition, with its celebrity supporters including Sky Sports presenter Dave Clark.
Betfred have previously shown their support for charity during their sponsorship of the World Snooker Championship, where they made a donation per century break scored at the Crucible – which totalled £25,000 at this year’s event.
