Luke Littler Features in England Announcement Video

Luke Littler once again displays his meteoric rise to darts fame by appearing in the Euro 2024 England squad announcement video. 

It’s no secret that Luke Littler has become something of a minor celebrity in 2024. 

The teenage darts player burst onto the scene at the 2023 World Darts Championship, as the then 16 year old went on to finish runner-up to champion Luke Humphries. 

Not only is reaching the final unheard of for a debut at darts biggest tournament, to do it fresh out of high school at 16 years old is mind blowing. 

This performance captured more than just the attention of the darts community. Mainstream media picked up on this amazing ascension and Littler quickly amassed 1m Instagram followers and became the face of darts almost overnight. 

The ‘Luke Littler effect’ had begun!

Since then, it’s been a rollercoaster year for the 17 year old. 

  • He’s met countless football stars including the Manchester United squad and legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson
  • Was sent a good luck message from David Beckham
  • Starred in a cereal commercial created by YouTbers Sidemen
  • Was on the Jonathan Ross show with Millie Bobby Brown
  • Went to the WWE Headquarters in New York and got a shout out from Champion Cody Rhodes
  • Finished top of the 2024 Darts Premier League on his debut season
  • Then he won the Premier League Play-offs, again on his debut…

There’s more but you get the point, Luke Littler is big time now and on Friday his fame went up another level.

Luke Littler Appears In ENGLAND Squad Announcement Video

On Friday, England released their squad announcement video and eagle eyed darts fans noticed that among the ‘general’ actors was a very familiar face. 

Luke Littler appears hitting a 180 and looking at his England badge in admiration as he is linked to the reveal of Kobbie Mainoo. 

As a Manchester United fan, it was fitting for Littler to reveal a Manchester United player and it shows just how mainstream this young man has become. 

Even on YouTube, the comments mentioning him have a not insignificant amount of engagement, especially for a video about England football and NOT darts.

Some players like Michael Smith have come out recently to say there are professional dart players who do not like the fame and attention Luke is receiving but there’s just no denying that he’s doing things for the sport that surpass every player (except maybe Phil Taylor) before him. 

He’s bringing serious eyes to darts and James Wade believed him to be “The Tiger Woods of darts”. At just 17 years old it will be interesting to see the heights he can reach in terms of playing accolades and just general fame. 

Despite being part of the announcement for the England squad for the Euro’s and being one of the best (inform) players at the moment in darts, Littler has missed out on the opportunity to represent his country next month at the World Cup of Darts.
