The World Darts Federation (WDF) was formed in 1976, by representatives of fourteen (14) nations.
Membership is open to the official National organizing body for Darts in all nations. Incorporated in the USA, as a world-wide federation of darts bodies, the WDF encourages the promotion of the Sport of Darts among and between those bodies, in an effort to gain international recognition for Darts as a major Sport.
The WDF is a non-political, non-racial and non-profit making organization dedicated toward achieving and maintaining the highest possible standard of presentation and organization, around the world. In keeping with this goal, the WDF organizes the following international ‘Cup’ events:
World Cup (odd # years – open to all WDF nations)
Americas Cup (even # years – open to WDF nations in the Americas)
Asia-Pacific Cup ( even # years - open to WDF nations in Asia & the South Pacific)
Europe Cup ( even # years - open to WDF nations in Europe)
English is the official language of the WDF. The official currency is the U.S. dollar. Currently, the WDF is comprised of more than 300,000 players, representing 67 nations across the six continents of Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North and South America.
The WDF holds bi-annual General Membership Meetings, in conjunction with World Cup events. Bi-annual WDF Conferences are convened during alternate years, following the Winmau World Championships, in England.
Annually, the WDF compiles its official World Player Rankings tables based on participation in over 80 National, Regional and World ranked events, staged by the WDF and its Member darts bodies.
