Eight of the biggest names from the world of darts headed to Brighton on September 22-23 for the third staging of the Champions League of Darts, with last year's shock winner Mensur Suljovic bidding to defend his title.

The veteran Austrian defied pre-tournament odds of 40/1 last year to claim his first major televised title but could he repeat the magic this year or would the likes of Gary Anderson, Michael van Gerwen, Rob Cross or Peter Wright win it for the first time?

Here, you can look back on how the tournament unfolded with all the results while there is links to each day's blog where you'll find video interviews, match highlights and statistics.
