Wade and van Gerwen now at The Den on 12th September
The visit of top PDC darts stars to Millwall Football Club has been moved to a new date.
Premier League Darts aces James Wade and Michael van Gerwen are still heading to do battle in Millwall, but will appear a couple of weeks later than originally planned.
The Millwall Masters will now take place on 12th September, featuring world number two van Gerwen and Wade, who is ranked fourth, alongside a charismatic trio including former World Champions Ted Hankey and Andy Fordham plus former Players' Champion Paul Nicholson.
Wade is the second most successful player in PDC history, having won seven major titles, while van Gerwen, the 2013 Premier League champion, is widely tipped to be a dominant force in darts for years to come.
The event will see four local qualifiers given the chance to take on the professionals.
Details of how to qualify will be announced in due course.
World Grand Prix winner van Gerwen, who was a guest of honour at a Millwall home game last season, said: “I'm really looking forward to this event.
I’m a big football fan and enjoyed visiting the club. I’m looking forward to coming back to show everyone what I do best in what is going to be a great night.
The line-up for the event is fantastic. We are all players who would expect to meet in the quarter and semi-finals of major tournaments so fans are in for a treat.
We will put on a good show and I hope the qualifiers will be ready because we will all be out to win!”
The date change is due to unforeseen professional commitments with the PDC.
