Cool Hand in the Desert Sands

Luke Humphries will make his World Series of Darts debut at the inaugural Bahrain Darts Masters in January, as Raymond van Barneveld returns to the global stage.

A 16-player field will compete in the World Series of Darts event at the Bahrain International Circuit on January 12-13, as eight PDC stars come up against eight Asian representatives.

BIC and CBX have teamed up with the PDC to bring the World Series of Darts to Bahrain for the first time, in partnership with Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority, with the Dome tent hosting the two-day event.

World Champions Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price and Rob Cross will compete in Bahrain, alongside reigning Grand Slam of Darts champion Michael Smith and two-time World Series winner Dimitri Van den Bergh.

Five-time World Champion Van Barneveld will mark his return to the World Series of Darts stage, with the Dutch legend last appearing in 2019 ahead of his short-lived retirement.

Shooting star Humphries will also make his debut in an international World Series of Darts event, marking his rise to fifth on the PDC Order of Merit during a superb 2022 campaign.

The eight Asian representatives will include two qualifiers from Bahrain who will win through from knockout events to be held on December 17-18.

The final PDC representative and Asian representatives will be confirmed in due course. Michael van Gerwen will not compete in Bahrain due to a pre-planned family holiday following the Cazoo World Darts Championship.
