Hungary, Czech Republic and Belgium to be visited in most expansive European Tour to date
After a German domination in recent years, the European Tour will visit seven different countries in thirteen events as of next year, with the Czech Republic, Hungary and Belgium being included as part of the series.
Following July’s inaugural staging of the Czech Darts Open, which was won by Jamie Hughes, the PDC’s elite will return to Eastern Europe for a second staging, while Hungary and Belgium are set for a first ever European Tour event under their roof.
The 2020 European Tour calendar will now commence with the Belgian Darts Championship in March, with the event being hosted by the Expo Hasselt – which was home to the European Championship for three years.
Further events will be held in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Gibraltar.
The European Championship will return to Dortmund after being held in Gottingen for this year’s edition, with the Czech Republic acting as the cut-off for qualification.
