The PDC’s North American World Series of Darts broke new ground with a record-breaking 190+ players battling in Las Vegas to fill just 8 qualifying spots over 2 days of grueling competition.  In the end, it was a newcomer who prevailed as the favorites fell.

Florida, USA’s Daniel Baggish defeated reigning champion, Canada’s Jeff Smith, to win the PDC North American Championship at the Mandalay Bay.  On July 4th, the day of his country’s birth, Baggish’s career was also born, overcoming his first time on the stage by taking out the most experienced of the North American qualifiers.

Barry Hearn’s Challenge to North America

From the Desk of Barry Hearn

To all North Americans:

The PDC’s annual World Series of Darts visit to Las Vegas is now less than two months away – have you made your entries yet for the US Darts Masters and North American Darts Championship Qualifiers?

Our events in Las Vegas will give all North American players the chance to step onto the global stage – both against top PDC stars in the US Darts Masters and also with the opportunity to win a William Hill World Championship place through the North American Darts Championship.

Darts globally has never been in a better place, and through the ever-expanding CDC circuit there is a domestic series which is providing a great platform for players in North America.

But in every sport, you’ve got to test yourself against the best in the business, and these events in Las Vegas are your opportunity to do that – as well as win some of the $180,000 in prize money on offer throughout the week!

The eight places on offer in our stage events will be determined through the four qualifying events on July 2-3 at the Mandalay Bay Casino & Resort.

Each event’s winner will qualify for the US Darts Masters and North American Darts Championship, alongside the top four players from the Qualifiers’ Order of Merit.

Entries close at 1600 BST (1100 EST, 0800 PDT) on Friday, June 28, 2019 – but you can secure your spot in the qualifiers by making your entries now!

Visit pdc.tv/vegas for full entry information or login (https://www.pdcplayers.com) or register (https://www.pdcplayers.com/Account/Register) with the PDC Online Entry System.
