The PDC World Series of Darts triple header planned for Wollongong, Townsville and Hamilton (Australia and New Zealand) in August 2020 like many events is to be postponed for 12 months.
This is due to the ongoing global restrictions in place due to the Coronavirus pandemic; the decision as a result has been made to move the events back 12 months to be held in August 2021.
This is like previous World Series events including New York; meaning that the global tour is basically all rescheduled now.
The New South Wales Darts Masters is now set to be played on August 6-7 in Wollongong to begin the triple header.
The Queensland Darts Masters in Townsville will then be played on August 13-14 as the second event.
They will then head to Hamilton; with the NZ Darts Masters to be held finally at the Claudelands Arena on August 20-21.
“As with our recent decision to move the US Darts Masters in New York back 12 months to be part of our 2021 World Series of Darts, we felt that this was the most appropriate step for our Oceanic events given the current global situation,” said PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter.
“The reaction of fans in Australia and New Zealand ahead of our World Series of Darts events had been extremely encouraging and we had been very excited about our planned debuts in Wollongong and Townsville as well as the return to Hamilton.
“To agree dates to stage the events in 2021 will now enable fans to plan with a greater degree of certainly for what should be three fantastic World Series events.”
