Denmark added to World Series schedule
The World Series of Darts will hit Denmark for the first time in 2020, after the PDC announced the location as part of its flagship global tour.
The Nordic Darts Masters will take place in The Forum Copenhagen Arena in the Danish capital on Friday June 12, and 13.
The tournament will be held over three sessions, one on Friday evening before Saturday’s finals day will be played across the day in Copenhagen.
Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT), a major streaming service in the region, will help promote the event.
16 players will take part in the event, with the format being eight invited PDC pros against some of the leading talent from the region.
Denmark had been a part of the European Tour series in 2018 and 2019 with the events taking place in the middle of the year at the Brondbyhallen, before being removed from the calendar for 2020.
The event will be a welcome to boost to some of the top talent in the region where Darts has gained in popularity in recent years.
Chief Executive of the Professional Darts Corporation Matt Porter believes it is a major step to help bring the sport forward.
He told the PDC website: “Launching this tournament with NENT Group is a milestone in darts’ ongoing global growth story.
“Guaranteeing the participation of top players at a fantastic arena in the centre of beautiful Copenhagen for the Nordic Darts Masters will make for a truly great experience for spectators and viewers, as well as a fantastic opportunity for players across the region.”
Copenhagen joins New York and Hamilton in New Zealand as named venues for World Series events in 2020.
