"I'm a darts fan first so when big events get cancelled it's not good for darts" - ADC president not gloating over WDF World Masters cancellation

The World Darts Federation (WDF) came out with the news earlier this month that the World Masters will not take place this year.

Steve Brown, president of the Amateur Darts Circuit (ADC) saw it with sorrow. "I wouldn't want to be on the WDF board at the moment. That's a thankless task. It's a big old ship to turn around."

The World Masters will not take place again until 2024, previously the WDF World Championship was also moved from early January to the end of the year. "If you cancel your two biggest events, players are going to lose faith in the tour. It's a costly tour to do as it is and the prize money is not great. For the players, they've got a tough decision to make."

"Listen I'm a darts fan first so when big events get cancelled it's not good for darts," Brown continued. "I can't take any glory in other people's failures, for us it's just about staying in your lane and keep doing what we're doing."

The ADC does not otherwise liaise with the WDF. "We were disappointed 18 months ago. We had a really good proposal. If I'm honest the other organisations have had a pretty bad attitude towards us."
