Nella news il comunicato originale
Il consiglio esecutivo della WDF, dopo essersi confrontato con le nazioni ospitanti, ha deciso di cancellare la WDF Americas Cup, l’ Asia/Pacific Cup e la Europe Cup per il 2020.
La Coppa Europa in Spagna sarà recuperata nel 2022, grazie alla collaborazione della England Darts Organisation che ha accettato di posticipare il suo anno al 2024.
Di seguito il comunicato ufficiale della World Darts Federation
Following consultation between the WDF Executive and the respective host nations, the decision has been made to cancel the WDF Americas Cup, Asia/Pacific Cup and Europe Cup for 2020.
The ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic has brought the WDF season to a halt and has severely disrupted the planning of international darts events. With so many factors to consider for every country involved, relating to health, finance and each of the nation’s government travel regulations, we agree that this is the correct decision for all concerned.
2020 WDF CUPS – CANCELLED
Americas Cup – Jamaica (24-26 July)
Asia Pacific Cup – Chinese Taipei (7-11 September)
Europe Cup – Spain (29 September-3 October)
The Jamaica Darts Association, the Chinese Taipei Dart Federation and the Spanish Darts Federation have been extremely cooperative and we would like to thank each of them for their understanding during this time.
We are delighted to announce that each of the three host nations have agreed to hold their respective events in 2022, with the WDF World Cups hosted by the Danish Darts Union in 2021 and the Korea Darts Federation in 2023 taking place as originally scheduled.
We also thank the England Darts Organisation for their support in adjusting their position as hosts of the 2022 WDF Europe Cup, to 2024.
