The high prices sparked outrage on social media, with one user on X, formerly known as Twitter, commenting: “Those prices are very steep… disgusting really, especially served in plastic beakers.” Another added, “Disgusting prices them,” while a third remarked, “Well, at least if you buy two, you only get to pay twice the price.

Another fan pointed out the rationale behind the pricing strategy: “They have a captive audience of clowns whose rationale for attending the event is to turn up in fancy dress, drink industrial quantities of overpriced beer and chant inane songs while watching the action on a huge screen. Manna from heaven for the O2.”

Despite the expensive drinks, fans enjoyed a thrilling final, where Littler triumphed over rival Luke Humphries with an 11-7 victory. The young darts star also hit an incredible nine-darter en route to his win, securing his first televised title and a prize of £275,000.

In his post-match interview with Sky Sports, Littler expressed his joy and addressed his critics: “For all the doubters, you’re not doubting me any more! I’ve just picked up this. It’s so good to win but in front of my family and my girlfriend! I don’t know what to do. I’ve hit a nine-darter on the World Series and so did Phil [Taylor] – now I’ve hit one in the final here and so did he.”
