The greatest show on planet darts returns for another festive feast of arrows, and you can follow all the latest results and fixture lists from the 2017 PDC World Championship here.

The sport's show-piece event will feature 72 players from all corners of the world competing for a record £1.65 million in prize money and the iconic Sid Waddell trophy.

The 24th staging of the PDC World Championship promises to be one of the most enthralling and competitive to date, with 66,000 fans set to flock to the Alexandra Palace for 15 days of darting drama.

Gary Anderson is aiming to become only the second player in PDC history to claim a hat-trick of world titles, with the likes of world number one Michael van Gerwen and 16-time World Champion Phil Taylor hot on his heels.

The field is comprised of the top 32 players from the PDC Order of Merit, who are joined by the 16 highest non-qualified players from the Pro Tour Order of Merit - based on non-televised ranking events.

Four PDPA qualifiers, four European ProTour qualifiers and a further 16 international qualifiers from countries including the USA, Russia, Greece, Japan New Zealand, complete the line-up.

The pre-Christmas action features the Preliminary and First round matches, which begin on Thursday December 15, as well as six Second Round ties.

Following the Christmas break, the Second Round continues on Tuesday December 27, with Round Three taking place across two sessions on Thursday December 29.

The Quarter-Fnals will be held on Friday December 30, before the Semi-Finals on New Year's Day and the Final staged on Monday January 2.

The tournament runs from December 15 to January 2, 2017 at the Alexandra Palace in London.

First Round: Best of five sets
