Gerwyn Price ruled out for Wales in World Cup of Darts, replaced by Jim Williams

Gerwyn Price Withdraws from World Cup of Darts Due to Health Issues

Gerwyn Price, the Welsh darts player, will not be able to defend the World Cup of Darts title due to health issues. This news comes as a blow to the defending champions, who won the tournament last year with Price and Jonny Clayton as the winning duo.

With Price ruled out, Jim Williams will step in to partner Clayton for Wales in the doubles event. Price expressed his disappointment at missing the tournament, stating, “I’m massively disappointed that I’m having to miss the World Cup and I always love representing Wales. I wish Jonny and Jim Williams the best of luck this weekend and hopefully they can bring back the title again!”

Despite Price’s absence, Wales will retain their status as the second seeds and will enter the event in the second round on Saturday at the Eissporthalle in Frankfurt. The tournament format includes a group stage followed by knockout rounds, with the eventual champions earning £80,000 in prize money.

Meanwhile, top seeds England will be represented by Luke Humphries and Michael Smith, with Luke Littler missing out due to selection rules. Fans can catch all the action live on Sky Sports, with the tournament set to culminate on Sunday with the semi-finals and final.
