Friday 28th and Saturday 29th August 2020
TOWNSVILLE is to host top-class darts for the first time later this year, with the Professional Darts Corporation to stage the Queensland Darts Masters on August 28-29 at the Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre.
The Queensland Darts Masters will form part of the World Series of Darts, which features a series of worldwide events during each year that see the sport’s top stars clash with regional qualifiers across two days.
Following events in New York and Copenhagen during June, the likes of World Champion Peter Wright, world number one Michael van Gerwen and women’s sensation Fallon Sherrock will travel to Australia in August.
The New South Wales Darts Masters in Wollongong will be the first of three events staged Down Under in August, with the players heading to Hamilton for the NZ Darts Masters before returning to Townsville for the inaugural Queensland Darts Masters.
The sport in Australia has never been stronger, with Perth’s Damon Heta having won the Brisbane Darts Masters last year before winning his Tour Card to join established stars Simon Whitlock and Kyle Anderson as professionals on the PDC circuit.
“We’ve travelled around Australia in recent years with the World Series of Darts and it’s exciting for us to be visiting Wollongong and Townsville for the first time in 2020 to take these fantastic events to new audiences,” said PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter.
“Both are strong sporting areas and this is a great opportunity to see the world’s top darts players live in high-profile international tournaments.
“After Damon Heta’s amazing achievement winning in Brisbane last year, all eyes will be on the local stars from Australia and New Zealand to see who can grasp their opportunity to claim glory alongside the biggest names in darts.”
