Gary Anderson keen for more Scottish tournaments

Gary Anderson believes that the PDC should increase the number of tournaments held in Scotland.

Gary Anderson has called on the PDC to include more tournaments North of the border for 2015.

The 2014 season will conclude with Scotland having hosted just two Premier League weeks and The Masters, but Anderson, who has been one of the PDC's star performers this campaign, wants to see more darts being played in his home country.

The 43-year-old told the Daily Record: "We only have three real gigs in Scotland a year, with the two Premier League nights and now The Masters. Three is better than none but we should be getting more, given the huge interest in darts in Scotland.

"I don't see any reason why we cannot squeeze in a couple more of the bigger events. Twelve out of the 16 Premier League dates are in England, yet Scotland officially had three out of the 10 players in the competition this year.

"There used to be floor shows in Scotland as Pro Tour events which counted on the rankings, but there aren't any more now."

Anderson will be competing in the World Grand Prix which gets underway next Monday, while The Masters will take place at the end of the month.
