Four Star Pizza announces Daryl Gurney darts sponsorship deal

It’s ‘magic darts’ for leading pizza company Four Star Pizza who today announced a new sponsorship deal with professional darts player Daryl ‘Superchin’ Gurney.

The announcement comes ahead of Thursday night’s opening round of the 2018 Unibet Premier League Darts season at the 3Arena in Dublin, where Daryl is set to make his debut in the competition in a meeting on the oche with five-time World Darts Champion, Raymond van Barneveld.

The 31-year-old thrower from Londonderry, who is currently ranked number five in the world, has made huge strides in the darts world since joining the PDC (Professional Darts Corporation) in 2013, culminating in a magnificent 2017 victory against Simon ‘The Wizard’ Whitlock in Dublin to win his first televised ranking final.

Four Star Pizza, who last year announced plans to increase its number of Northern Ireland stores from 12 to 30 by 2019, will now have its logo displayed prominently on Daryl’s playing shirt for all of his 2018 fixtures.

Four Star Pizza Director, Brian Clarke, was excited to welcome Daryl to the pizza company’s team, saying,

“We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Daryl and are looking forward to supporting another successful darts season for him in 2018.

“We know that 1,000’s of our customers support Daryl in every match, so this partnership was a natural fit for us. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Daryl the best of luck ahead of tonight’s match at the 3Arena in Dublin and assure the ‘Superchin’ that we will have a pizza worthy of a champion waiting for him afterwards!

Speaking ahead of tonight’s match, Daryl said,

“It’s great to be sponsored by Four Star Pizza – I believe we share the same fanbase! I’m really looking forward to working together over 2018.

“Hopefully it will give me a push to make 2018 even better than 2017. The aim is to win more TV titles!”

Daryl will take to the stage wearing his Four Star Pizza sponsored shirt for the first time at tonight’s match against Raymond van Barneveld. Darts fans can tune in to watch the local favourite from 7:00PM on Sky Sports.

Four Star Pizza is a wholly owned Irish company that operates a total of 49 stores across the island of Ireland, including 12 in Northern Ireland.
