Littler has captured the hearts of all sports fans with his fairytale run to the final of the 2024 PDC World Darts Championship.

The teenager, a debutant in the tournament, has roared all the way to the final at Alexandra Palace.

He has beaten former world champions Raymond van Barneveld and Rob Cross on his way to the final, where he will play pre-tournament favourite Luke Humphries on Wednesday.

But which football club does Littler support?

Luke Littler’s support of Man Utd

Little is a fan of Premier League giants Manchester United.

The teenager admitted in a recent interview that he is a big supporter of the Red Devils and that he has been receiving plenty of well-wishes from United players during the World Championship.

“Obviously I’ve got a lot of followers now,” Littler said.

“I’ve had a message off Luke Shaw from Manchester United, Rio Ferdinand and I had a message off Gary Neville and Jonny Evans before my game against Barney so it’s just crazy.

“People I’ve looked up to and especially my club Manchester United, wishing me luck.”

According to the Daily Mail, Man Utd have invited Littler to attend their game at Old Trafford against Tottenham on Sunday 14 January.

United will be hoping that were he to attend, Littler will transfer some of his inspired form from the World Championship to his favourite team’s players.

The Red Devils are enduring one of the worst seasons in the club’s history.

They have already lost 14 games in all competitions, look out of the top four race and have been eliminated from Europe and the League Cup.
