Darts fans fume at 'sickening' beer prices at Premier League final won by Luke Littler

Darts fans were left slamming the “sickening” drinks prices at the Premier League Darts final at the O2 as Luke Littler stormed to victory.

The 17-week tournament came to an end on Thursday evening in London. Luke Littler continued his dream debut year with the PDC by claiming victory.

The 17-year-old saw off World Championship final opponent Luke Humphries 11-7 in the final - also hitting a perfect nine-darter in the process. Unfortunately, due to his age, Littler was not able to celebrate with a drink.

And some fans at the O2 might have also chosen to abstain given the prices in the arena. Punters were forced to pay £8.95 for a pint of beer, while a cider was the same price.

It was even more expensive to buy the more premium drinks. Camden Pale Ale and Camden Hells Lager were priced at £9.25 and £9.50 respectively, while a pint of Thatchers Fusion cost £9.25.

Amusingly, the organisers showed the price of two of each drink which was simply double the price, rather than a deal. Fans took to social media to express their disgust at the pricing.

One supporter responded: "Daylight robbery!!!!!!” while another said: "The cheek of them to put the two-pint price there like they’ve got a deal on."

The criticism continued to come throughout the evening. Another fan wrote: "Not even a deal on the two pinter." A final supporter said: "Sickening."

While Littler did not have a drink on the evening, he still made sure to mark the occasion as he lifted the Premier League trophy. Speaking to Sky Sports after his success, he said: “I just want to say one thing: for all the doubters, hello!

"I’ve just picked up this [waves trophy] – you’re not doubting any more! It’s so good to win in front of my family, my girlfriend and my manager. I just said to Luke, ‘I don’t know what to do!’

“I’m just enjoying it. I’ve been practicing really hard today. You could probably see it on the oche, I didn’t even want to blink. All the hard work goes into this.”

Asked how the win will change him, Littler responded: “I don’t know. I’m a major winner now, I can put my name on the list of all the other major winners. I can’t wait to go to New York next week and then have a week off in Orlando.

“Like Luke [Humphries] said, hopefully we’ll meet in many finals, and now it’s 1-1 in major finals! Ah, I don’t know what to say…”
