After a crushing semi-final win over Gary Anderson, all that stands in his way is Michael Smith of St Helens.
What is Michael van Gerwen’s net worth?
Michael van Gerwen has an estimated net worth of £5.3million following his 2019 PDC World Darts Championship victory.
With Phil Taylor retiring after last year’s world darts final defeat to Rob Cross that makes him comfortably the richest darts player on the planet.
Along with the prize money he gets for winning tournaments, Van Gerwen enjoys a host of endorsement deals.
The 29-year-old is sponsored by a number of companies in the UK and Holland including Leyland Trade, dartshop.tv, Keuken Concurrent, Van Mossel Automotive and XQ Darts Max.

Van Gerwen expects to be crowned darts king months after being honoured by Dutch royalty

Category : Darts , Sport

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN expects to be crowned the King of Darts – months after being honoured by the King of Holland.
In May, the two-time world darts champion was awarded the prestigious Knight of the Order of Orange-Nassau medal.

It was presented to Van Gerwen by his local Major on behalf of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands – and he is the youngest person to become a Dutch Knight.
Van Gerwen, 29, said: “It’s a nice thing to have this accolade. I’m a proud Dutchman and I’m honoured because it’s been a huge journey.
“It’s combined with the work I do for charity as well as my darts. I’m very privileged to have the knighthood now – I’m the youngest Dutch guy ever. In Holland, a Knighthood is somewhere inbetween the MBE and OBE in the UK.
“It’s good for darts in general and my team. I hope I can continue my success for the next 5-10 years.”

It has been an incredible journey for MVG, with two world titles on the mantelpiece before the age of 30.
Mighty Mike lost in a semi-final epic against rookie Rob Cross 12 months ago, a defeat he describes as a “disaster” having squandered five match darts to progress to a dream final against Phil Taylor.

It’s fair to say the world no.1 has not been in such scintillating, dominant form leading up to this year’s event at Ally Pally.
He has only won three of the 10 TV PDC majors this year – compared to six in 2017, eight in 2016 and six in 2015.

LONELY WALK

Why are there no walk-on girls at the World Darts Championship?

There are some who feel his tag of invincibility has gone completely, especially since he was shocked by Daryl Gurney in the final of the Players Championship in Minehead.
But Van Gerwen agrees completely with the bookmakers who, at 11-8, make him the leading contender to lift the Sid Waddell trophy on New Years’ Day.
Van Gerwen plays the winner of the first-round tie between Alan Tabern and Australian Raymond Smith tonight and he said: “Am I the man to beat? Of course. Otherwise they wouldn’t make me the favourite for the tournament – it’s as simple as that.

“They know what I’m capable of and what I can do. They know what kind of danger I can be. People expect a lot from me. If you are the tallest tree, you catch most of the wind. There is less expectation on other players, so when they win a tournament, it’s said they are having a great year. I’ve still won twice as much as any other player this year.
“Of course, it hasn’t been all of the big ones, I didn’t win as many TV tournaments this year, but it’s still more than anyone else. What other people say is up to them. I know what I can do.
“It would be phenomenal for me to win a third world title. I’m trying to get prepared and I hope I don’t make any mistakes.”

Heineken Champions Cup: Saracens’ darts-mad party animal Richard Barrington looking for double tops against Cardiff Blues

DARTS MAD Richard Barrington leads a secret sporting double life away from Saracens. . . meet Bazza, The Bull, Barrington!
The tungsten titan even has his own darts shirt, but has never worn it at the Sarries training ground as he fears he will never hear the end of it.
Darts fan Richard Barrington with the late, great Eric BristowTwitter
In fact the main chat at Old Albanians right now is that of 20 stone Barrington being on the receiving end of a giant-killing from 5ft 7ins England scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth.
In a modern-day David versus Goliath slaying, tournament favourite Barrington has been sensationally knocked out of the club’s annual darts championships by Wigglesworth.
However, The Bull still has his Thursday night throwing sessions at his local village pub, just outside of St Albans, where he is a valued member of the Hertfordshire league.
And ahead of today’s trip to Cardiff, where Sarries hope to throw a bullseye and secure their route to the Champions Cup knock-out stages, Barrington has finally come to terms with becoming a big-name scalp at the oche.

The 29-year-old said: “I like to think I’m quite handy, playing in the pub team and we also play quite a bit here.
“But I had Wiggy in a quick knock-out game and he just pipped me. Somehow there are some terrible boys still in the competition, and I’m out.

“They seeded it and picked it out of the hat and on one half of the draw it is pretty tasty. The other half, well. . . there are more holes in the door than there are in the dart board. They are useless.

“One half of the draw is pretty tasty. The other half, well. . . there are more holes in the door than there are in the dart board. They are useless!”

Richard Barrington

“It should be a good final and will probably be down to Wiggy and Duncan Taylor.”
Sarries favourite Barrington isn’t the first rugby player to switch balls for arrows.
Gerwyn Price, the controversial PDC title winner from Wales, is the ex Neath and Glasgow hooker who beat Gary Anderson to win £110,000 in the Grand Slam of Darts final last month.

Barrington said: “I’ve met Gerwyn a few times and have been out in Cardiff with him.
“He has brought that rugby physicality to darts, you can’t touch anyone, but he uses it through his actions. I respect that, because it’s mainly full of old boys.
“He comes with a different game plan and he rattled Anderson. But I prefer watching darts on TV as I get into it, if you go to the darts you just get steaming, don’t you. . . there’s not much darts watching!”
As well as being handy with the arrows, Barrington has also proven himself as the ultimate party boy.

His dressing room celebrations and the ‘Barrington remix’ are infamous at Saracens.
Even when they won the Champions Cup in 2017 and Barrington was injured after tearing his calf off the bone and breaking his wrist, he still whipped his shirt off and started the party at Murrayfield.
Recalling his first cameo when they won the Premiership in 2015, he said: “It was out of the blue, I had never done that before.
“Everyone was singing, I didn’t know what song to sing, so I thought I would choose a little bit of all of them and just made it up as I went along.

“I changed it up the next time by making up some lyrics for Chris Ashton’s song as he was going to Toulon, but I’ll have to think of some new material now as he’s gone!
“That year I was in a bit of a state with my injuries, but because I wasn’t playing, I had a few during the game so I was pretty excited when we won. . . I can’t remember much of it!”
With 148 Sarries appearances under his belt, it is guys like Barrington who hold things together when superstars like Mako Vunipola and co head off on England duty.
And every time Vunipola gets picked to play in a Red Rose campaign, it’s good news for Devon lad Barrington.

Back on the bench today against the club he supported growing up, he said: “I’m fortunate and unfortunate with Mako.
“Fortunate because I get to learn off him and watch him play, because he is one of the best looseheads in the world, and unfortunate because I’m struggling to get a game!
“All jokes aside, he is a top lad and he is great to have as a teammate.
“Test windows are a really fun time. . . it’s also my favourite time because I play most of the games as the big lad is away!

“It’s great to see the core of the club, with the internationals away, still performing.
“We had a good couple of victories in the autumn and it’s great now to have those guys back.”
And boss Mark McCall admits that even though Barrington isn’t one of his Lions or England heroes, he is vital in their success as they look to reclaim their European crown.
The Irishman added: “Richard arrived as Jersey’s second-choice loosehead to help us out in an LV Cup window many years ago and has now played almost 150 times for us. It’s an incredible achievement.
Saracens boss Mark McCall signed Barrington as emergency cover in 2013
“He has become a really important member of the group for other reasons too, he is highly popular and brightens up everyone’s day, every day.
“But he also wants to get better and always steps up when Mako is not around.”
