Isle of Man Darts Festival cancelled due to 'effects of Covid-19 pandemic'
The first Gold event of the 2021 WDF calendar has fallen by the wayside with the cancellation of the Isle of Man Darts Festival which was due to be held in March.
In a statement on their Facebook page, they revealed that Visit Isle of Man had cancelled the event due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Due to take place between 11th and 14th March, it means the wait will go on for a return to WDF action ahead of their World Masters and World Championship this year.
Rob Callister MHK, who is a politician responsible for Visit Isle of Man commented: "I know this will be a disappointment of our visiting darts players and fans, as well as the Isle of Man's own darting fraternity. It has not been possible to find a suitable alternative date for the festival later in the year, so the decision has been made to reinstate the festival between the 10th-13th March 2022. Further details will be released at a later date.
The festival is a major component of the annual events calendar organised by VISIT ISLE OF MAN and private events organisers, we very much look forward to welcoming everyone back for what we hope to be a bumper festival in March 2022."
