The 52-year-old from The Hague, who ended his professional career at the World Championships in London at the end of last year, will be offering his cups and all other memorabilia won in phases through an online auction. The first sales round starts next Friday.
“Those cups have been here for centuries, I am a bit finished with it,” Van Barneveld left with the NOS know. “It may go away. Yes really. It also seems nice to offer it to my fans, who have followed me for years. A lot of people will say, “He’s in divorce and needs money.” Well, you can see my bank statements, that’s certainly not the case. “
Van Barneveld won five world titles in his shiny career. He would like to start his own professional team at the darts. “For that I can use the money from the auction well.”
