The Unibet Masters has been announced for 2017! Arena MK is proud to once again house what promises to be another sell-out weekend of World-Class sporting entertainment. After hosting two highly successful installments of the much anticipated PDC event, we scheduled a catch-up with PDC’s Chief Executive Matthew Porter, to see why the tournament is so popular and why PDC choose Arena MK. This is what he had to say...
A UNIQUE HOTSPOT FOR EVENTS IN THE REGION
“Well, this is our third year at Arena MK. It’s a part of the country where we don’t have any other events, and it’s the perfect venue for us to reach our fans in the Midlands. As a result, we always get a great reaction and a great turnout; the popularity of both the tournament and the darts has increased significantly since being at Arena MK.”
GREAT FACILITIES AND POSSIBILITIES – AND THE STAFF AREN’T HALF BAD EITHER
“The venue is modern with great facilities and extensive possibilities for staging a successful event. What’s more, the Arena MK team are a pleasure to work with; they are great – always attentive and on-hand to help us out.”
DOUBLETREE BY HILTON MILTON KEYNES OFFERS ADDITIONAL EXCELLENCE AND CONVENIENCE
“The onsite hotel is excellent and offers convenience to both us as event organisers, logistically, and also to our fans.” As a 304 bedroom hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton Milton Keynes easily accommodates people visiting Arena MK. What’s more, the modern luxury rooms, complimentary in-room Wi-Fi, three stunning bars and restaurants, and 1,450 free car parking spots; it adds total simplicity and comfort to a busy day of excitement at Arena MK.
2017 UNIBET MASTERS – A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
“This is the first event of the calendar year, kick-starting what is sure to be another brilliant year of darts. Following the World Championships over Christmas, this event really picks up the excitement. The tournament features a ‘quick-fire’ format, which means there are always upsets and lots of surprises. The atmosphere is truly fantastic and unlike any other sporting event – anyone who hasn’t been before should go.”
