DARTS’ most famous rivalry will be reignited for an exciting night of corporate entertainment when legendary arrows aces Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld clash in a not-to-be-missed event at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton in 2018.

16-time World Champion Taylor retired from the professional tour following January’s World Championship final but will go head-to-head with his old adversary ‘Barney’ in what promises to be a special evening of fun and sporting excellence on 21 November.

Taylor dominated professional darts for almost three decades and his battles with van Barneveld, including two World Championship finals, were box office events for Darts fans around the world.

Van Barneveld boasts a proud record of major titles, including five World Championship triumphs – only Taylor holds more.

The two players, who put the modern day spectacle of a night at the darts on the map, have a huge global appeal but – for one night only – will be up close and personal for your entertainment.

“Playing Barney gets the adrenaline going,” admitted Taylor, arguably the UK’s most successful sportsman.

“I’m really looking forward to the night, mixing with the people and playing an opponent who always brings out the best in me, as I do in him.”

The pair will be joined by two-time World Championship finalist and Australia’s most iconic player Simon Whitlock.

Guest will dine as the professionals relive their glittering careers before showcasing their skills on the oche.

Various sponsorship and commercial partnership opportunities are available for this event, which provides the perfect opportunity to entertain, inspire and reward your valued clients, customers or staff.
