FOLLOWING discussions with the PDC with a view to evolving darts across the Scandinavian territories, the Scandinavian Darts Corporation will become "Professional Darts Corporation Nordic & Baltic" in 2017.

The Scandinavian Darts Corporation had been launched in 2012, with a series of tournaments being held in Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden since.

The Professional Darts Corporation Nordic & Baltic (PDCNB) will now expand to see ten events staged over five weekends this year, and will include players from Baltic countries as well as from across Scandinavia to continue the organisation’s expansion.

PDCNB events will be open to players who are a passport holder or resident for two years or more in one of the following countries: Denmark, Faeroe Islands, Estonia, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden.
