Season ticket holder for darts event
Darts star Michael van Gerwen has been dominating the sport of late and Pompey season ticket holders can buy specially discounted tickets to see him in action.
The world number one, who is appearing at the Portsmouth Guildhall in an exciting event in December, has won two major titles recently.
Having already won the World Championship in 2014, Dutch ace van Gerwen picked up the World Grand Prix trophy in October before becoming European Champion.
‘Mighty Mike’ achieved a nine-dart finish in his semi-final win over Raymond van Barneveld, who is also competing in Portsmouth in a few weeks.
The Dutch pair are part of a star-studded line-up for the ‘The U Moove Untouchables’ event, which takes place on Saturday, December 6.
And van Gerwen believes he will be able to reproduce the same kind of stunning performances that have seen him become the best player on the planet.
He said: “My form is fantastic at the moment and I am sure that I will bring it to this event.
“I have played in Portsmouth a couple of times before and the fans have been fantastic to me and I want to repay them by playing my top game.
“I hope I can win the event and maybe even treat the crowd to a nine-darter, as I believe it has never happened before in the five years of this tournament.”
Pompey season ticket holders will be offered a discount* on tiered seating tickets to the event – so they should look out for a special email that will be sent out – which also features double World Champion Adrian Lewis, seven-time major winner James Wade and Australian ace Simon Whitlock.
Former World Champion Mark Webster, darts legend Bobby George and Holland’s Vincent van der Voort are also on show in what promises to be an exciting evening of sporting entertainment.
