World number one Michael Van Gerwen will headline a high-quality field when Cheltenham's annual arrows returns to the racecourse on Friday 21 February 2020.
The star-studded line-up will feature two times Grand Slam of Darts winner Gerwyn Price and history-making darts ace Fallon Sherrock who hit the headlines worldwide when she became the first woman to win a match at the World Championship and becoming a global sensation overnight.
Fallon said: "The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for me but I am loving every minute. I can't wait to make an appearance at this year's Cheltenham Masters. The atmosphere at The Centaur will be electrifying."
Also on show will be 2008 World Champion Mark Webster, rising star Joe Cullen and World Trophy winner Darryl Fitton.
The legendary 'King of Bling' Bobby George will be returning to the racecourse to bring his unique brand of entertainment and razzmatazz to the evening.
George said: "This is always a well attended event with a fantastic crowd full of darts enthusiasts. I am especially looking forward to this year's event as there will be an additional 'Royal' player in attendance. I'm sure the ladies will get behind Fallon the 'Queen of The Palace' on the night."
Lee Moulson, regional head of sales at Cheltenham Racecourse, Jockey Club Racecourses, said: "We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Fallon to Cheltenham Racecourse in February after making history.
"She is a fantastic addition to the line-up and I am sure that darts fans are going to be pleased to see her playing on the night in The Centaur.
"The Cheltenham Darts Masters is always a memorable night and I know many people look forward to each year.
