Phil Taylor vs Raymond Van Barneveld: Live stream FREE, TV channel, and start time for virtual darts charity match

TWO of darts greatest players of all time are set to go head-to-head once again.

Phil Taylor and Raymond Van Barneveld spent decades at the top of their game, duking it out at the oche countless times in one of sport's great rivalries.

They're now set to renew hostilities once again with a game of virtual arrows, all in the name of charity.

When is Taylor vs Barney?

THE virtual match has been arranged to raise funds in the fight against coronavirus.

It will be held TONIGHT, April 9.

Both of the competitors will be in their respective living rooms, just like you.

Things get underway at 7pm BST.

Which live stream and TV channel can I watch it on?

YOU won't be able to watch the darting legends battle it out on TV.

But the entire match is being shown live and free by organisers Paddy Power on YouTube.

And make sure you stick with us here on SunSport too where we'll be bringing you all together in our comprehensive LIVE BLOG, getting going at 6.50pm.

What are the rules?

THE pair met 83 times during their glittering careers, with The Power coming out on top with 61 victories.

It's set to be a tense affair, with the match played as a best-of-13 legs.

Both players will be using a state-of-the-art Target Nexus dartboard.

It will allow them to see their opponent, talk to them and of course keep track of their respective scores.

And just to ramp up the tension, both players will complete a signature walk-on - from their kitchen.

The 16-time world darts champion Taylor told SunSport: "This is more for the NHS, I’m not bothered whether I win, lose or draw, it’s all about raising money."
