The Professional Darts Corporation have received two further nominations in the 2020 Sports Business Awards in the new Coronavirus Innovation categories.

It was announced in May that the William Hill World Darts Championship had received recognition for a fourth successive year by being shortlisted in the 'Best Sports Event of the Year' and 'Best Operations Team' categories.

The unique circumstances around the sporting world in 2020 have led to the introduction of further categories in relation to Covid-19.

The PDC Home Tour has been shortlisted in the Coronavirus Innovation Award: Communication category, having run across three months during lockdown to provide live-streamed competitive darts from players' homes.

The PDC Summer Series, held in July in Milton Keynes as the PDC returned to in-person competition with five one-day Players Championship events, has been shortlisted in the Coronavirus Innovation Award: Protection category.

The Sports Business Awards winners will be announced on Wednesday December 16 during a virtual awards ceremony.

The PDC has previously received the 'Best Operations Team' award in 2018 and the 'Best Match (or Game) Day Experience' award in 2019 to recognise the success of the World Championship at Alexandra Palace.
