The world's best dart players will compete against each other from their own homes in an innovative new series.

Desperate for some live sport? Well, leave it to the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) to come up with an innovative way to make that happen.

All 128 cardholders in the PDC have been given the opportunity to compete in a brand new event, the PDC Home Tour.

The only requirements are that players can set up a camera in their own home and communicate with the host and producer in English. One scheduled competitor, two-time winner of the World Championships Gary Anderson, had to withdraw due to weak Wi-Fi in his house, something that has worried everyone in the current times.
