PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter to provide update on future tournaments next week
PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter will provide an update on future tournaments as early as next week.
Professional darts successfully recommenced just over three weeks ago with the Summer Series at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, before returning to television screens with the World Matchplay at the same venue.
Dimitri Van den Bergh reigned victorious in the sport’s second biggest ranking tournament, as the Belgian defeated Gary Anderson in the final to clinch his maiden major title.
Darts now faces another hiatus – albeit significantly shorter than its previous one due to enforced lockdowns worldwide – before the resumption of the Premier League from August 25, once again held behind closed doors in Milton Keynes.
The European Tour remains scheduled to resume from September with the inaugural Hungarian Darts Trophy in Budapest, before travelling to Germany, Gibraltar and the Czech Republic.
Meanwhile, the Asian Tour is currently set to commence in Taiwan at the end of August after almost a year without any sort of competition.
Information regarding future tournaments across the globe was planned to be released on Friday by the PDC, though, their announcement was delayed after an eventful week.
A statement from Porter is now expected next week for ALL players within the professional system, supposedly including both the Challenge and Development tours as well as the non-UK sanctioned circuits.
Been a challenging week on many levels and we'd hoped to make announcements today but please bear with us for a bit longer as we continue to deal with varying rules and restrictions in different territories.
We'll have details next week for fans and ALL players within our system
