Taking place for the first time in four years because of the pandemic, this year's World Cup sees New Zealand, Japan, Wales, Canada and England all looking to defend the Gold medals they won in Romania in 2019.

2023 will mark the second time that the WDF World Cup has taken place in Denmark. The first was all the way back in 1987. That year, Eric Bristow was the star of the show as he led England to a hat-trick of titles.
