Team Germany filed a protest regarding the eligibility of John Michael of the Greek team to participate in this World Cup.

Following the review of the protest we have discovered that he is in breach of the WDF Eligibility Rule (Bye-Law 7.05 (6)) and has therefore been disqualified with immediate effect.

Following this decision by the WDF Executive the Greek team decided to withdraw from the tournament.
