“After the World Darts Federation (WDF) had embraced the bid of the Dutch Darts Association (NDB), we immediately searched for a suitable location. The NDB is very happy with Hotel Zuiderduin as our partner. It is a well known location within the sport and is popular amongst the darters and their audience. We have agreed to join forces and organise a fantastic European Championship”, said Sijmon Timmers, chairman of the NDB.
The last time the Europe Cup was played in the Netherlands was in 2000 in Veldhoven. Then we were given the honour to host the World Cup in 2007, also the Six Nations Cup in 2013 and several European championships for the youth. We are pleased to add another magnificent international tournament to the list and are proud to organise this in the Netherlands.
The Europe Cup promises fantastic darts matches and offers darts fans a unique opportunity to see their team compete against other European top players. We expect that more than 30 countries will compete for the European title.
