The world’s leading darts players will return to Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, in July 2018 for the 2018 PDC US Darts Masters.

World number one Michael van Gerwen, the reigning PDC US Darts Masters champion and 2018 World Champion Rob Cross will head a field of eight leading stars who will face off against North America’s top talent in the two-day event.

The PDC US Masters forms part of the PDC’s World Series of Darts and is preceded by the 2018 North American Darts Championship on July 5, with the winner of the eight-player event qualifying for the 2018/19 World Darts Championship.

The eight North American qualifiers will then also compete in the US Darts Masters against PDC stars Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright, Rob Cross, Gary Anderson, Daryl Gurney, Gerwyn Price and two additional players to be confirmed.

The PDC US Darts Masters was first held in 2017 to great success as Van Gerwen defeated Northern Ireland’s Daryl Gurney in a thrilling final, while South Dakota’s Willard Bruguier followed up his North American Championship victory by competing in London in December at the World Championship.
The event will be the second of six global championships on the World Series of Darts tour, which also visits Germany, China, New Zealand and Australia ahead of the season-ending World Series Finals in Austria.
