World Cup of Darts Qualifier Added

Red Dragon Darts

ASIA is to become the latest region to stage a qualifying event for the PDC World Cup of Darts.

The expansion of the tournament to see 40 teams in the main event last year had led to the introduction of a regional qualifier in Latin America for nations from the Caribbean, Central & South America.

The ongoing growth of the PDC Asian Tour will see eight nations guaranteed places in this year’s World Cup of Darts, which will be held from June 27-30 in Frankfurt.

Pairings from the Philippines, China, Japan, Hong Kong and Bahrain will secure automatic spots in the World Cup, and be joined by three nations from the Asian Qualifiers on May 19.

The Asian Qualifiers will be held between the top two ranked players from other Asian nations on the PDC Asian Tour Order of Merit following Events 10-12 in Penang.

PDC Tour Card Holder Christian Perez will form half of the Philippines’ pairing, alongside his top-ranked compatriot from the PDC Asian Tour rankings after Event 12.

The top two players from Japan and Hong Kong following Event 12 will form their pairing, while the finalists of the 2024 PDC China Premier League will represent China.

The 2024 PDC Asian Tour begins on January 13-14 in Dubai with Events 1-3 – watch coverage on PDCTV throughout the weekend.

The full 2024 PDC Asian Tour schedule is:
Events 1-3 – January 13-14, Dubai
Events 4-6 – March 16-17, Kyoto
Events 7-9 – April 20-21, Manila
Events 10-12 – May 18-19, Penang
Events 13-15 – June 8-9, Ulaanbaatar
Events 16-24 + Asian Championship – TBC

NB: The PDC reserves the right to invite additional teams/players into the PDC World Cup of Darts Asian Qualifier. For example, if a country only has one player on the Asian Tour Order of Merit, the PDC reserves the right to invite a second player to form a team.
