Jamie Lewis says he “can’t wait” to be part of a record-breaking night of darts in Gelsenkirchen on Friday as he prepares to make his World Series debut.

Lewis has been rewarded for his landmark run to the Semi-Finals of last December's World Championship with an invite to the season's first World Series event.

The 16-player tournament is the first of six global events on the 2018 World Series circuit and will see the home of FC Schalke 04 transformed into a "Darts Music Arena" for the one-day spectacle, with a record crowd of up to 20,000 expected.

Lewis will face PDC debutant Nico Kurz in the afternoon session and is keen to make an instant impact on his World Series debut.

"I can't wait," Lewis told Live Darts. "I've heard there might be twenty thousand people there - which is crazy.

"It's in the Schalke ground as well so I'm really looking forward to it.

"I think there's bands on in between each round so it should be really entertaining.

"A dream of mine when I was a kid was just to play at Lakeside, let alone playing at Ally Pally and all these venues we play in on the European Tour.

"Darts is getting absolutely massive and I'm glad to be a part of it."

Welsh ace Lewis is an avid Liverpool supporter and says he has tailored his travel plans carefully to ensure he is home in time for their Champions League final clash with Real Madrid on Saturday night.

He added: "I'm a big Liverpool fan and I've made sure I've got an early flight back on Saturday morning to get ready to watch it.

"I'll probably watch it at home because I like watching it on my own because people start shouting and I can't do it.

"If it goes wrong at least I can sulk in the bedroom!"
