The World Cup of Darts 2020, is an upcoming event in the Professional Darts Corporation. It is set to be the tenth edition of the event and it will, for the first time since 2010, be held away from Germany. After many weeks of deliberation and changes in the venue, it was decided that the event will take place from the Salzburgarena in Salzburg, Austria.

Entering the event are 32 countries, each represented by the top two highest-ranking players from that country that had agreed to play. The defending champions are Scotland, however, their team will not consist of the winning duo from 2019, Peter Wright and Gary Anderson, with both opting to not play due to travel restrictions caused by Covid-19, they are set to be replaced by Robert Thornton and John Henderson however due to the pairs low rankings Scotland did not make the list of seeds making it the first time in the history of the tournament that the winning team were not seeded the year after. This is also the first time in the history of the event that neither of the previous years winning players returned to defend their title.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic will be felt throughout this tournament, the original hope from the PDC was that by moving this event to Austria they may have been able to have a small crowd in the venue however due to rising cases across Europe it was decided this was not possible. Due to the pandemic, Singapore had to withdraw from the event and was replaced by Portugal.

The tournament will consist of five rounds, the top seed for the event, England, will play the Philippines. Meanwhile, the tournament favourite according to some bookmaker’s odds are the Netherlands, represented by World Number One Michael van Gerwen and rising Dutch star Danny Noppert, will play Brazil in the opening round.

In terms of the format, round one will be played as a best of nine legs doubles game. This changes in round two where the format becomes best of three games, the first two games will be singles events with the tiebreaker, if necessary, being a doubles game. The second-round format will remain right through to the semi-final. The final however will be played as a best of five games event.

The main focal points going into the tournament:

Michael van Gerwen has in previous years been the man to watch in all tournaments and has carried his country, The Netherlands, to multiple World Cup victories, however, going into this tournament Michaels form has come under heavy criticism mainly shaping around how his new darts were affecting his game, he has since switched back to his older darts but we have yet to see him hit top form leaving many questioning whether he is the favourite going into this event.

Jose de Sousa, a late entry representing Portugal, is being billed as a potential heavy hitter for the event following a euro tour victory and a recent nine-darter for “The Special One”. He is perhaps more knows for his lacklustre and sometimes hilarious counting ability but he is one to watch coming into the event.

The Welsh team is perhaps what many people see as the strongest team entering into this event represented by two-time grand slam champion and new world number two Gerwyn Price as well as world number sixteen Jonny Clayton, a two-time Players Championship winner. This team seems favourite among fans due to Prices recent form. They were also pitched as the favourites.

The World Cup of Darts 2020 begins on Friday, November 6th, the first games will start at 12:00 GMT / 13:00 CET and will broadcast on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom.
