Champion Darts Corporation confirms schedule

By Editorial Staff 11/05/2021

The Championship Darts Corporation have confirmed their plans for U.S. dates on the 2021 Championship Darts Circuit, with two treble-header weekends to be staged this year. The CDC, under the watchful eye of Peter Citera, has proven adaptable and determined during the pandemic period and were quick to adopt virtual leagues and other competitive darts innovations.

The net result of their efforts may well have been the 2020/21 performances of player's such as Danny Baggish who seemed to benefit and be in good match practice at important points during last season.

Ongoing restrictions across North America forced the postponement of all events in the first half of the year, and non-essential cross-border travel for the U.S. into Canada is still not permitted, though the CDC remains hopeful that plans to reopen the border will be announced by June 1.

Play will commence with three events from July 9-11 in Tampa before a further treble-header is staged from September 17-19 in Philadelphia.

The weekends of August 13-15 and October 22-24 reserved in the calendar at present pending relaxation of Canadian restrictions and the CDC are continuing to liaise with the relevant authorities in relation to plans for Canadian events on these weekends.

In the event no plan for reopening the border is announced by June 1, the CDC will be forced to separate the tour by country, as was done in 2020. Further announcements will be made in due course.

The USA Order of Merit leader following the six events will qualify to represent America in the 2021/22 William Hill World Darts Championship in December.

At present, all CDC Tour Card Holders will be able to enter the events, with 16 places in each event open to non-Tour Card Holders from an on-the-day qualifier. An announcement will be made after June 1 regarding cross-border eligibility.

In addition, the CDC will stage the CDC Matchplay on July 23 in Nashville, Tennessee, and the double-start CDC Shootout event on September 3 in Washington.

Plans are also in place to stage the CDC Continental Cup on November 20 in New York, with details to be confirmed in due course.
