Capacity increased for the sold out Super League Darts Final

Capacity increased for the sold out Super League Darts Final

To accommodate demand, extra tickets have been put on sale for the SKYCITY Super League Darts final on Saturday August 1st.

The final previously sold out in under two weeks but capacity at the venue has now been increased.

Tickets are on sale through Ticketek and are expected to sell out quickly.

“We’re absolutely thrilled with how the public have got behind Super League Darts. The fact we have had to increase the demand for the final shows how darts has grown in New Zealand. It’s been an amazing series and the final promises to deliver something special” said Tournament Director Mark Hudson.

Pool play over the last few weeks has found four finalists to compete at the SKYCITY on August 1st.

Peter Hunt, Warren Parry, Rob Szabo and Craig Caldwell will now go head to head in the knock-out semi-finals.

The final will also be the first ever LIVE televised darts event in New Zealand when it is broadcast through SKY Sports.


SKYCITY Super League Darts is an invitational tournament featuring the top four players on the New Zealand rankings as well as four wild cards selected by tournament promoters. The first three nights will see players compete in pool play format, with the top two from each pool qualifying for the semi-finals on the final night.

The tournament has been held at the SKYCITY Convention Centre across the following dates in July and August:

* Night 1: Friday 10 July

* Night 2: Friday 17 July

* Night 3: Saturday 18 July

* Finals: Saturday 1 August

Super League Darts launched across the country in 2014 and delivered New Zealand’s answer to one of the world’s fastest growing sports. This is the first time SKYCITY Auckland have come on board as sponsor for this growing sport which promises to bring the drama of the dart board to the heart of Auckland.

Darts has experienced rapid growth worldwide and is now the second largest TV sport in the UK, second only to football. In New Zealand the sport gears up for a big year when the world’s top eight players visit our shores in late August for the Auckland Darts Masters.

More information can be found by visiting and by contacting the tournament promoters 265 Events Limited.
