As part of the World Darts Federation's new ranking system, any event awarded 'Gold' status will see their Men's and Women's champions qualify directly for the Lakeside World Championships in January 2022. With seven 'Gold' events scheduled in the lead up to December's WDF World Masters, we look forward to an action packed Autumn in 2021.
Due to the increasing number of Covid-19 infections in our country, the government announced new measures on July 9. One of the most important measures is that no multi-day events are allowed until August 13. It will then be assessed whether events will be allowed again afterwards. As a result, there is a lot of uncertainty about the possibilities of organising something after August 13.
After more than 400 days of event cancellations and postponements as a result of the global pandemic, the 2021 WDF season finally got underway with five events across three continents. Andrew Sinclair reviews all the June action for us, from New Zealand to Gibraltar and from USA to Hungary!
Registration for the TOTO Dutch Open Darts 2021 is open. This unique darts event will take place from Friday 3th until Sunday 5th of September in the Bonte Wever in Assen. The TOTO Dutch Open Darts is by far the largest darts party in the world, and the only platinum ranked open tournament by the World Darts Federation.
The World Darts Federation are happy to confirm that the global ranking system will recommence from June 2021 onwards, with the “Gold” graded Denmark Open in Esbjerg added to the calendar (October 1-3).
With the travel restrictions and health risks associated with the Covid-19 global pandemic set to continue, the World Darts Federation will be placing all WDF ranking events on hold for a further 3 months.
