UKDA announce long-term sponsorship deal with Darts Corner

As announced over the festive period, the United Kingdom Darts Association (UKDA) have revealed a long-term four year sponsorship deal with Darts Corner to be their equipment supplier.

This will mean that UKDA members will receive discounts and it also sees the Mission Samurai II becoming the official dartboard for their events.

It sees a further opportunity for the organisation who took over the county game after the BDO's demise with Japanese darts manufacturer, L-Style also coming on board.

The aim will now be to start the county season in late 2021 with this backing now on board.

"It has been six months since the UKDA proposal to encourage county teams into the National League was released, and we have been working tirelessly since that moment to find a title sponsor for the Association and we are delighted that objective has now been achieved," said UKDA Chairman Johnny Stefano in an official statement.

“The level of support, help and advice we received from the outset by Darts Corner, their CEO Wayne Taylor and his team has led us to this historical moment.

“Considering those discussions started when we didn’t even have any teams signed up, all negotiations since have taken place during the toughest period imaginable, not just for grassroots darts players specifically but the country generally, which makes the agreement even more incredible.

“The UKDA now have the support we sought and when we all get back to playing again the commitment Darts Corner has provided will ensure we can now provide an exciting future to all those players who have entrusted us with task of moving the National and Super League systems forward.

“Though work still goes on within the UKDA management team to ensure all commercial opportunities are pursued, the backing of Darts Corner, the endorsement of what we want to achieve, the benefits that our new sponsors will provide will filter back into the National and Super League areas of the grassroots game.

“To all the players competing within them, we are both grateful and excited to see what together we will be able to achieve for the players in the next few years.”
