World Matchplay Darts 2017 live scores and tournament schedule

The World Matchplay returns to Blackpool for nine days of terrific tungsten this July, and you can follow all the latest results and fixtures here.

The 24th annual staging of the sport's summer show-piece sees 32 of the world's top stars battling it out for a record £500,000 in prize money at the historic Winter Gardens venue.

The world's top 16 ranked players are joined by the next 16 highest ranked players from the ProTour Order of Merit in the second most prestigious major of the season.

Michael van Gerwen is targeting a third consecutive Matchplay crown and a fourth straight appearance in the final as he looks to continue his prolific spell of dominance.

Phil Taylor, the most successful player in the history of the competition with 15 titles and the only player to feature in every staging since it began in 1994, is set for an emotional Blackpool farewell as he prepares to step away from the sport at the end of the season. 

James Wade is the only other player in the field to have previously lifted this trophy, while the likes of Gary Anderson, Peter Wright and Adrian Lewis will all be determined to stake a claim.

Five players will make their debut in this year's World Matchplay: Rob Cross, Steve West, Christian Kist, James Wilson and Cristo Reyes.

First Round matches are to be contested over the best of 19 legs, Second Round best of 25, Quarter-Finals best of 31, Semi-Finals best of 33 and the final best of 35 legs.

Matches will proceed for a maximum of five additional legs before a tie-break leg is required. For example, in a best of 19 legs first round match, if the score reaches 12–12 then the 25th leg will be the decider.
