WDF 2016 Europe Cup Darts


In 2016, the WDF Europe Cup for men and women will take place in the Netherlands! From the 20th till the 24th of September 2016 Hotel Zuiderduin in Egmond aan Zee will host this international top tournament. You can expect a fantastic five day tournament at top level.

“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.

The WDF Europe Cup has a beautiful history. John Lowe won the first singles tournament in 1978, but also famous names like Bobby George, Phil Taylor, Trina Gulliver, Martin Adams and Mark Webster are on the list of single winners. Famous Dutch champions are Raymond van Barneveld, Co Stompé and Francis Hoenselaar.

More information about the European Championship in 2016 will be published online soon:
