The BDO Torremolinos Festival of Darts which was set to take place between 15-22 March 2020, has been cancelled amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

A statement (below) was released due to this with the reasoning given that the Spanish President cancelled all sporting events in the country for the next 14 days; due to the ongoing pandemic which has affected multiple PDC events also in Holland and Germany.

With the lateness of the announcement by the relevant authorities, players had already travelled out to Spain for the event; they will still receive all they have paid for barring the event itself with those booking a package receiving accommodation at the Sol Principe hotel.

“We regret to inform you that the Torremolinos Festival of Darts has been cancelled. The BDO were informed at 09.30hrs local time today that the Spanish President made a statement cancelling all sporting events in Spain; for at least the next 14 days.”

“People already arrived into the Sol Principe hotel will still receive the same level of quality and hospitality during their stay. People who chose not to attend the event will receive a refund; in line with booking policy and guidelines asap.”

“Anyone travelling to Spain are asked to take all precautions advised  and necessary to stay safe.”
