THE POWER TAKES ON RVB IN A DIGITAL DARTS LEGENDS MATCH - Organised by Paddy Power and Target Darts.

Darting greats Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld will be renewing their rivalry after Paddy Power set up a 'Darts From Home' match between the pair, in conjunction with Target Darts.

The legendary Taylor and Van Barneveld, who have won 21 world titles between them, have met in two world championship finals, winning one a piece. The Paddy Power match, in almost no way at all, will act as the determiner but will entertain us all and add another chapter to this great story.

Their last meeting was in 2017, with Taylor winning their Champions League of Darts match-up. This will be the first time they've played each other or, indeed, anyone digitally.

Using the interactive Target Nexus dart board, the pair will be able to play remotely with the board allowing the players to see, speak, and play each other from their own homes. Meaning the match can happen in complete isolation during lockdown.

Paddy Power will make a £1,000 donation to the NHS charity Heroes for every 180 hit in the match.

Big finishes are practically guaranteed with the entire bullseye (including outer and as well as inner bull) worth 50 in soft-tip darts, this match could have one of the highest averages in darting history.

The clash will be filmed on mounted iPhones sent to both players and will be available to view on Paddy Power Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channels, as well as Target Darts Twitter and our Facebook page . This is one not to be missing.
