The United International Open Darts is a tournament of a private organisation and not a tournament of the Dutch Darts Association (NDB). As a national association, the NDB is only involved in the application for international ranking points and furthermore not involved in the organisation of the tournament. If an international tournament is played, the national body in that country is responsible that the prize money will be paid as advertised. This does not apply to other costs, such as the refund of registration fees and/or travel costs for players if a tournament is cancelled.
The NDB regrets this situation for the players and hopes for a decent settlement for the players and everyone that is involved.
