The first Champions League of Darts will be broadcast live on the BBC as part of an "exciting new era" for the sport.
It will include the top eight players from the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC), which is the leading body in the sport. The top two players from each group will battle it out to win the title.
BBC Director of Sport Barbara Slater said: "Darts has always had wide appeal and it is great that audiences will get the chance to see all the action from the world's top players live on BBC Two and across our platforms."
The channel's alliance with the PDC could see the return of some of the biggest names in darts such as England’s 16-times World Champion Phil “the Power” Taylor who last played on the BBC in 1993.
This is the first time that the channel has shown a PDC tournament since the organisation split from rivals the British Darts Organisation (BDO). Its Premier League Darts competition is currently shown on Sky.
However this decision taken by the BBC to broadcast the League means that it will stop covering the BDO World Championships due to the channel's budget cuts.
The Champions League of Darts will be shown on Saturday 24 September and Sunday 25 September from Cardiff on BBC Two.
