We won’t see the seeds enter the action until Saturday, but there are lots of well-known names in action.
With the draw and schedule for this weekend’s event now confirmed, Michael van Gerwen will begin his defence of the Interwetten European Darts Open against either Raymond van Barneveld or Filip Sebesta.
The Ostermann Arena in Leverkusen will host the second European Tour event of 2023 from March 24-26, with 48 players competing for the £30,000 top prize.
This weekend’s action will feature reigning champion Van Gerwen, top seed Luke Humphries, and Dave Chisnall, who won the year’s first European Tour title in Kiel last month.
All the games from the European Darts Open can be watched online, and only online they are not shown on regular TV. So we have a complete step by step guide on how you can watch all the Austrian Darts Open matches.
