The PDC European Tour events scheduled for Leverkusen and Munich in the coming weeks will be postponed due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
Following a decision by the federal governments in North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria to prevent gatherings of over 1,000 people, the following European Tour events will now not take place as planned:
European Darts Open (ET3) - March 27-29 in Leverkusen
German Darts Grand Prix (ET4) - April 11-13 in Munich
The PDC are working with PDC Europe to schedule new dates for the events, with the possibility that other planned tournaments may move in the calendar to accommodate the rescheduled European Tour events.
Tickets already purchased for the events will remain valid for the equivalent session of the re-arranged event, or refunds will be available.
Players are advised not to book travel or accommodation for these European Tour events. The PDPA have also advised all players to check that they have appropriate travel insurance.
The PDPA can assist players with any queries relating to travel or accommodation bookings.
In addition to the two postponed events, PDC Europe remain in dialogue with the venue and local authorities in Sindelfingen regarding the forthcoming European Darts Grand Prix, which is planned to take place from March 20-22.
The planned opening three weekends of the 2020 PDC Asian Tour have already been cancelled due to the Coronavirus epidemic, with the season now set to begin in May with events in Seoul and Kobe.
NOTE: At present, the Tour Card Holder Qualifiers for ET3&4 are expected to be played as planned in Barnsley on Friday March 13.
