DartConnect and WDF Announce 5-Year Partnership

,

DartConnect and The World Darts Federation have signed a 5-year agreement to collaborate on technology, programs and competitions to promote and grow the sport of darts globally. Since the first joint venture at the 2019 WDF World Cup in Romania, the two entities have continually worked together to develop initiatives that can unite players from around the world.

WDF 2019 World Cup – Cluj-Napoca, Romania

The global pandemic challenged both organizations to adapt to a new virtual environment that included several success stories, including the 2020 World Virtual Cup and the 2021 Challenge Weekends. With great anticipation, both organisations look forward to the return of in-person competition in 2021, while jointly developing a new integrated, customised tournament experience tailored specifically for WDF sanctioned events.

This joint effort will also include a dedicated DartConnect TV (DCTV) channel for WDF sanctioned competitions, providing a community network for participating events. Though it’s not obligatory to use at WDF ranked tournaments, those organisers that do choose DartConnect will be provided with the tools and programs they need to dramatically reduce the amount of effort required to register and seed players, make draws and conduct competitions, report results and most importantly, improve the player experience on the oche. There will be a direct integration with iDarts database and the WDF website to provide timely updates with results, statistics and rankings tables. These updates will occur in phases over the coming months.

David Macher, CEO & Founder of DartConnect: “Our mission statement, from day one, has been to “Get more people, to play more darts, more often”. Our partnership with WDF will make the sport more accessible and allow players to focus on the match, instead of the scoring and logistics of the competition itself.  Together, we achieve higher participation and better performance. We look forward to extending our mission to our partnership with WDF sanctioned events, ensuring they are always best in class.”

Bill Hatter, WDF President: “We encourage all of our member nations to work with the WDF and DartConnect to incorporate this platform into all competitions. We already have early commitments from Australia, the British Open, Romania, Scotland, Wales and WDF Ranked events in Canada and the United States. This is a great start to demonstrate what our two organisations are capable of. We look forward to making WDF competitions more accessible to players of all levels, not to mention making tournament organisation easier for our officials around the world.”

Richard Ashdown, WDF Chief Development Officer: ““We are excited to work with DartConnect and continue the success that we experienced at the 2019 WDF World Cup. DartConnect will be utilised at this year’s World Masters in the Netherlands and for the historic return of  the World Championship at the Lakeside. Beyond the World Cup, we look forward to  integrating the platform into the WDF’s Asia-Pacific, Americas and Europe Cups, ensuring that  every live match and result is available in real time to fans across the globe.”
