Following the success of the Summer Series held in early July, the PDC has scheduled the Autumn Series in Germany for 12-16 September. These five one-day events are a continuation of the Players Championship Tour and provide ranking points and qualification chances for the Grand Slam and World Grand Prix. Plans for a Winter Series in the UK should be finalized soon.
The Summer Series showcased the world’s top 128 professionals playing behind closed doors inside the PDC “bubble” created at the Milton Keynes arena. Due to virus-related regulations, players were required to keep score for their fellow players if they lost and many players were thankful to DartConnect for making it a stress-free job.
Details surrounding the new Autumn and Winter series’ will be forthcoming as the requirements for coping with Covid-19 restrictions are ever evolving and the venue moves from the UK to Germany for the September events.
In addition to video streaming on PDCTV, live scores and results for every match will be shown on DartConnect TV.

Held within the “Bubble” concept that all professional sports have been forced to implement, the PDC ProTour is finally back from its Coronavirus hiatus and DartConnect will be there with full LIVE coverage.
Five straight days of competition, dubbed the “Summer Series,” faces the biggest changes in the tour’s history as play resumes with strict social distancing measures. Staff markers will be absent to reduce occupancy, resulting in players marking games for one another with DartConnect.
This means the players themselves will be responsible for feeding the live scoreboards to fans on DartConnect TV, another ProTour first.
