Revised 2020 PDC tournament schedule

With the announcement today by the PDC of a large number of postponements in the schedule we have discontinued our previous Calendar updates and will carry on with a fresh overview.

As well as the Euro tour events being rescheduled as expected (Germany has banned all events until at least the end of August) a number of pro tour, challenge tour and development tours have been postponed.

Perhaps the most significant item on the list is the rescheduling of the Hungarian Darts Trophy which has resulted in the Champions League of Darts being removed from the 2020 PDC Calendar.

Even if these postponements are the last needed the rescheduling headache for the PDC certainly isn’t over. With so many postponements requiring new dates, the ranking season looks in even more uncertainty and it is surely time for the PDC to take a positive stance to give all players, managers and sponsors clarity.

Furthermore, the City West Hotel has been reported to have been block booked for the entire remainder of 2020 to act as a Corona virus care centre. As such a new venue for the 2 players championship events and the World Grand Prix in Dublin will have to be found.
