The now traditional WDF stage host ‘duo’ of Richard Ashdown and Jacques Nieuwlaat has been in place at World/Europe Cup events since 2008.  Unfortunately, Jacques is unable to attend the 2017 WDF World Cup in Kobe, Japan in October due to other contractual obligations.

In his absence, Jacques’ Dutch compatriot Marco Meijer will be in attendance as Floor/Stage referee alongside Nick Rolls, who has been part of the WDF team since 2015.  Both have vast experience on the world stage, having officiated at the Lakeside World Championships for many years.  Richard will continue in his role as Master of Ceremonies. We look forward to welcoming Jacques back into the team in Budapest, Hungary for the WDF Europe Cup in 2018.
