The 30th edition of the World Darts Championship is heading for the 3,200-capacity Alexandra Palace at the end of 2022.

A total of around 80,000 fans are thought to have seen the action in north London in 2021, when Scotsman Peter Wright won the championship for the second time.

Wright beat Michael Smith 7-5 in the final and expressed his sympathy for the rising star after a match in which the lead changed hands several times.

Here are the dates for the 2022/23 tournament, how each day looks, the format and the latest betting odds.
