How many PDC World Darts Championship titles has Michael van Gerwen won?

Ohhhhhh Michael van Gerwen!

Michael van Gerwen heads to London bidding to end his wait for yet another Paddy Power World Darts Championship title.

The Dutchman is one of the greatest to have stepped up to the oche and the crowds at Alexandra Palace can attest to his magical moments over the years.

After breaking onto the scene in the rival BDO organisation, MVG switched to the PDC in 2007 and honed his craft against the best in the business before suffering a 7-4 defeat to Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor in his first World Darts Championship final in 2013.

Van Gerwen returned to Ally Pally the following year and finally got his hands on the Sid Waddell Trophy – beating Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright in the final – to become the youngest winner of the tournament at the age of 24, a record that is still in the books.

He joined the elite club of multiple winners when getting the better of two-time champ Gary Anderson in a high-quality final in 2017 and there was just a two-year gap before his third – and most recent success – when trouncing Michael ‘Bully Boy’ Smith.

MVG reached the final when defending the Sid Waddell Trophy in 2020 but found ‘Snakebite’ a bit too good and suffered a 7-4 loss to ‘Bully Boy’ in the showpiece of the most recent edition.

A record of three championships and three more final appearances makes the 34-year-old the second-most successful player in the history of the Paddy Power World Darts Championship behind the legendary Phil Taylor.
