U.S. Darts Masters

North American Darts Championship
Saturday, June 6, 2020 – 1:00pm
Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden will host the 2020 U.S. Darts Masters and the 2020 North American Championship on June 5-6, bringing the likes of current world number one Michael van Gerwen to New York. The World Series of Darts, promoted by the Professional Darts Corporation, incorporates six worldwide tournaments throughout each year ahead of a season-ending World Series Finals event, allowing local prospects their chance to challenge the biggest names in darts.
The 2019 U.S. Darts Masters had seen England’s Nathan Aspinall – one of the new stars making his breakthrough at the top level – take victory on his World Series debut in Las Vegas. Reigning World Champion Van Gerwen won events in Melbourne and New Zealand, flamboyant Peter Wright – famed for his colourful mohawk hairstyle – took victory in Germany, and Australian qualifier Damon Heta claimed a stunning triumph in Brisbane. Florida’s Danny Baggish was the 2019 North American Championship winner, and will now go on to represent the U.S. in the World Championship in London in December before heading to New York to defend his title.
New York’s arrival as a new destination on the World Series of Darts tour represents further growth for the sport, which has become the biggest indoor sport in the UK. Over 300,000 fans will attend PDC events annually, while the World Series has visited Dubai, Singapore, China, and Japan since being introduced six years ago.
PDC Chairman Barry Hearn, the leading sports promoter, said: “This is a fantastic development for darts to be bringing the glitz and glamour of the World Series of Darts to the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. This is a world-renowned venue and 20 years ago it would have been a pipedream for darts players to take to the stage in such an iconic arena – but this is another exciting move for us as the World Series continues to grow. Not only will this be special for the players competing, but this is a fantastic chance for fans to see the cream of the world’s darting talent under one roof on June 5-6.”
