BetVictor, one of Europe’s leading online gambling companies, has been unveiled as the title sponsor of the 2019 BetVictor World Cup of Darts. With a long-standing association with the PDC most recently as title sponsor of the 2019 Masters, BetVictor will now support the multi-nation, Sky Sports-televised event this June.
2019 sees the BetVictor World Cup of Darts return to Hamburg for a first appearance at the Barclaycard Arena, where 32 nations will compete from June 6-9 for the title and a top prize of £70,000.
“It’s fantastic to welcome BetVictor as our new title sponsors for the World Cup of Darts,” said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
“This event has grown in stature every year since being introduced in 2010 and provides a unique experience for darting enthusiasts, as players throw aside personal rivalries to team up for their country.”
“The mixture of Doubles and Singles matches across the weekend also makes for a thrilling tournament, and it should be a brilliant four days in June,” added Hearn.
Director of Sportsbook at BetVictor, Matt Scarrott said: “We’re very pleased to be collaborating with the PDC once again.
“We’ve previously partnered with them on a number of tournaments which were all very successful so I am confident that the 2019 BetVictor World Cup of Darts will be another exciting event – definitely one to watch!”
Reigning champions Netherlands will attempt to defend their title in June, bidding alongside England to claim a fifth World Cup title – the two nations are the only previous champions in eight stagings of the event.
The 32 nations for this year’s tournament will also include the Philippines, who return to the event for the first time since 2016 to replace Thailand.
