The 2019 World Cup Of Darts takes place from Thursday June 06th to Sunday June 09th from Hamburg, Germany, with 32 Nations taking part. Some new look teams will be taking part in this year’s tournament, as Jermaine Wattimena replaces Raymond van Barneveld as Michael van Gerwen’s Netherlands partner, whilst Rob Cross and Michael Smith make up England’s team.
Wales will be well fancied as they have Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton representing them and Simon Whitlock and Kyle Anderson will be feared as the Australian pairing. Gary Anderson and Peter Wright make up a strong Scottish team.
Other notable pairings are – Daryl Gurney & Brendan Dolan (Northern Ireland), Kim Huybrechts & Dimitri van den Bergh (Belgium), Mensur Suljovic & Zoran Lerchbacher (Austria), Max Hopp & Martin Schindler (Germany), Steve Lennon & William O’Connor (Rep. Of Ireland), Paul Lim & Harith Lim (Singapore) and Cristo Reyes & Toni Alcinas (Spain)
The tournament features a combination of doubles and singles format throughout.
