"I'm not NEXT GEN, I'm Old Generation" - Participation in the new PDC Europe Circuit is out of the question for Robert Marijanovic

On Saturday, March 2, and Sunday, March 3, the NEXT GEN tournaments 3 and 4 of the PDC Europe will take place in Eisenstadt. Anyone who is at least 16 years old and does not have a PDC Tour Card may take part in this circuit. They must also be registered in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or Luxembourg and be able to provide proof of citizenship.

Nevertheless, the former World Championship competitor, Robert Marijanovic, is not seriously considering taking part here, as he revealed in the "Game On" podcast: "I've really thought about whether I'll do it, maybe, Sindelfingen (in July and August, editor's note) would also be a real option," he told Elmar Paulke. "But honestly, I don't feel 'NEXT GEN', I'm 'Old Generation'. I'm almost 44 years old, I've been to the World Championships and I've played numerous European Tour tournaments. I've made good use of the opportunities the PDC Europe has given me."

One of the aims of NEXT GEN is to enable the most successful players on this tour to take part in qualifiers for the European Tour and the Europe Super League. "Others should do that. Those who are younger. Who haven't had this experience yet. Just give them this space and let them perform," said the Robstar, giving an insight into his reasons for not taking this opportunity.

However, Marijanovic, who still enjoys competing against other players to see where he currently stands with his performance, will not be withdrawing from the tournament altogether. In conclusion, he said that participating in the MODUS Super Series was very appealing to him and that he was asking around to see what it would take to qualify for one.
