A second new destination for the World Series of Darts has been confirmed for 2020, with the Nordic Darts Masters to be held at Forum Copenhagen on June 12-13.
Following the recent announcement that the U.S. Darts Masters will be held in the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, next year will also see the Danish capital Copenhagen welcome the world’s top players.
The Forum Copenhagen arena will host the Nordic Darts Masters event across two days as eight leading PDC stars face off against eight players from across Scandinavia.
The tournament will be held across three sessions, with the first round on Friday June 12 followed by the quarter-finals in the afternoon session on Saturday June 13, with the semi-finals and final in the evening session.
The Nordic Darts Masters is being staged in conjunction with Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), who are the region’s leading streaming company.
“Bringing the world’s best darts players to Copenhagen for the spectacular Nordic Darts Masters will attract huge attention from fans in Denmark and beyond,” said Kim Mikkelsen, NENT Group Head of Sport.
“Innovative partnerships and top-class entertainment are what NENT Group is all about, and we’ve hit the target once more by delivering world-class darts to the Nordic region for the very first time.”
Copenhagen has successfully staged PDC European Tour events in 2018 and 2019, and joins the list of global destinations for the World Series of Darts circuit.
PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter said: “Launching this tournament with NENT Group is a milestone in darts’ ongoing global growth story.
“Guaranteeing the participation of top players at a fantastic arena in the centre of beautiful Copenhagen for the Nordic Darts Masters will make for a truly great experience for spectators and viewers, as well as a fantastic opportunity for players across the region.”
Tickets for the Nordic Darts Masters will be sold through Ticketmaster.
Alongside the U.S. Darts Masters (June 5-6) and Nordic Darts Masters, the PDC have also confirmed the staging of the NZ Darts Masters at Hamilton’s Claudelands Arena on August 21-22.
Further PDC World Series of Darts events will be confirmed in due course.
