After Lukas Wenig was the first German to win a week of MODUS Super Series last weekend, this tournament is also coming more into focus here in Germany.
The MODUS Super Series are a possibility for all players who don't have a Tour Card to get match practice besides the Challenge Tour.
"You always have to create alternatives for the players who are not qualified for such a European Tour event or don't have a Tour Card, those who are on the Challenge Tour," Max Hopp explained to Adrian Geiler at DAZN.
"Sure, the top pros, they're so busy, they're happy to take a breather for a weekend, but everyone else, I think like a lot of people, just wants to play darts at home. Every chance they get."
The German can imagine a tournament of this kind for the mainland as well: "It's a model that first found favour in England. But I can very well imagine that also the Netherlands, Belgium, possibly also Germany will adopt this model at some point."
At the moment, the Maximiser is still very busy as a co-commentator. But as soon as he has some breathing space in his calendar, he will also play in the MODUS Super Series. "At the moment I am really busy with a few other projects. But I had already been in contact with George Noble (organiser of the MODUS Super Series). I had been at the European Tour event in Leverkusen to support Martin Schindler. We have already fixed a date," Hopp let the bombshell drop.
"I won't spoil it now and say when it is, but it will definitely be in the summer that I will play the MODUS Super Series," he concluded, giving a small hint at his planned participation.
