THE PDC World Darts Championship could be moved from Alexandra Palace due to coronavirus.

Darts supremo Barry Hearn revealed he is examining all available options for the sport’s biggest event, held over Christmas and New Year.

And Hearn revealed they will move the event away from the Ally Pally if needs be.

He told Sky Sports: “If it has to be Ally Pally behind closed doors, it will be.

"If it has to be somewhere else, it will be.

“We’ll be wherever we have to - because what we don’t want to do is let the players down.

“They will be playing for the same money, wherever and whenever it is.”

Porter told the SportsPro Live virtual conference: "In terms of our planning, I wouldn’t say we have wrinkles - we have great big creases.

"There is no definite plan - other than it will take place.

"At this stage we don’t know what the scenario will be.

"We may have zero per cent of fans allowed, it could be ten, 50, or, as we’d like, 100 per cent.

"But at Matchroom we are independent, creative and flexible, so we can react quickly.

"As long as we have a month’s notice, we can sell tickets."
