A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is being offered to darts fans across the UK – thanks to Leyland Paints.

DartsMad has teamed with Leyland Paints to offer a lucky fan a fantastic chance to play against current PDC world champion and world number one Michael van Gerwen.

LETY_MVG_Darts_Day_Logo‘Mighty Mike’ has risen to the top of the sport over the last two years, winning a host of major titles including the World Championship at Alexandra Palace last Christmas.

Now you have the chance to test your darting skills against the very best the world has to offer in our exciting competition.

Our winner will face van Gerwen in an unforgettable best-of-five-leg 501 encounter as part of a private exhibition to be held in Huddersfield on the afternoon of Friday, September 26.

On top of that, the winner will also be invited to bring two friends to the special event, who will also get a chance to play a leg against the Dutch maestro.

“The darts fans in the UK are first class and it will be fantastic to have the chance to play against a few of them in the special exhibition,” said van Gerwen.

“I have a great relationship with Leyland Paints who are a brilliant sponsor and they have played an important role in the success I’ve had this year.

“This promises to be a very exciting event for everyone involved and I’m prepared for some tough matches.”

As well as backing van Gerwen in his quest to win the sport’s biggest titles, Leyland Paints also sponsor two other world class talents.
