Gerwyn Price has had his record £20,000 fine following his controversial win at the 2018 Grand Slam of Darts halved to £10,000, following an appeal against the Darts Regulation Authority (DRA) Disciplinary Committee.
A statement from the DRA was released earlier today, which detailed the outcome of Price’s appeal. The world number seven, who defeated Gary Anderson 16-13 in last year’s Grand Slam of Darts final, in Wolverhampton last November, to win his first major title, was appealing against both the finding and the sanction imposed.
An Appeals Committee, which comprised of three independent members of the DRA, revised the sanctions, reducing Price’s fine ‘for bringing the game into disrepute and gamesmanship’ in his quarter-final against Simon Whitlock, which he won 16-15, from £8,000 to £4,000, and in the final from £12,000 to £6,000.
Price’s three-month suspended ban, which was suspended for a period of six months, passed on July 11, while his fine for ‘inappropriate posts on social media’ remained at £1,500.
The Appeals Committee also ruled that Price is to pay £2,325.24 towards the cost of the appeal process.
Price pocketed £110,000 for winning the Grand Slam of Darts, plus an extra £2,500 for finishing top of Group F.
