World Series of Darts events in US, Australia and New Zealand rescheduled for 2022
After last year's postponement of the World Series of Darts, the wait will continue in the US, Australia and New Zealand for the top darting stars to return to action until at least 2022.
Five World Series of Darts events were due to take place in 2021 with the usual US Darts Masters before the World Matchplay as well as the Oceanic leg taking in Australia and New Zealand in August.
But while the Nordic Darts Masters was revealed to be taking place in September yesterday (Tuesday), the remainder of the calendar will be shifted till 2022.
This doesn't include the World Series of Darts Finals which will be hosted at the AFAS Live in Amsterdam in October after a previous sell out back in 2019.
"Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding international travel, we felt it appropriate to provide clarity on our plans for the World Series of Darts," said PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter.
"We remain very excited about the PDC’s debut events in New York, Wollongong and Townsville, as well as returning to Hamilton and Copenhagen, and have been highly encouraged by how the planned events have been received by darts fans globally.
"Agreeing dates to stage the events in 2022 gives fans the chance to plan with a greater degree of certainly for what promises to be a fantastic year of World Series events."
But while these events will not take place in 2021, their 2022 dates have already been confirmed with Madison Square Garden potentially finally set to host the US Darts Masters in June.
A TBC date will see the Nordic Darts Masters in what will be its second iteration in Copenhagen while Queensland, New South Wales and Hamilton in New Zealand will welcome Darts in mid to late August next year.
