The world's top darts players are to return to Edinburgh for a new three-day tournament - The Masters - which will be held at the Royal Highland Centre in early November.
The all-new invitational event will see the top 16 players from the PDC's world rankings - led by World Champion Phil Taylor, Premier League Darts champion Michael van Gerwen, European Champion Adrian Lewis and Scotland's former UK Open champion Robert Thornton - face off across three nights in a knock-out format.
The Masters will see darts return to the Royal Highland Centre for the first time since the Ingliston venue staged the popular Premier League Darts event in 2009.
"We're delighted to be bringing darts back to the Royal Highland Centre with The Masters," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
"This is a new concept for us with only the world's top 16 players qualifying, but the format will ensure high quality matches throughout three days and exciting matches between the biggest names in darts," he added.
Phil Taylor won the inaugural event with a 10-1 demolition of Adrian Lewis in the final.
