#darts The #PDC North American Pro Tour attn: ! - Darts Underground

The PDC North American Pro Tour

It’s official !

The PDC will launch a North American Pro Tour (NAPT) that is designed to grow each year and sustain itself after the first 3 years. Each NAPT event will be held over a weekend with the Pro Event being held on the Sunday. An associated tournament or warm-up event would precede the Pro Event on the Friday and Saturday.

The program is designed to sustain itself after the first three years meaning that there would be at least 8 Pro Events in 2015 and subsequent years. Success of the program will mean additional growth in year 4 (2015) in terms of increased prize money per event and/or an increase in the number of Pro Events throughout North America in 2015.

The following details outline the PDC NAPT program for the first three years. At the present time, one of the 3 Pro Events to be held in 2012 has been confirmed, the London Ontario NAPT Pro Event to be held on Sunday, August 26, 2012 at the Hilton London Ontario. The 2 additional Pro Events will be announced as soon as they are confirmed and will be posted on the Bull’s-Eye News website:

1. The PDC NA Pro Tour would be open only to North American residents.

2. Each Pro Event in the PDC North America Pro Tour would consist of a guaranteed $10,000
singles event with the PDC Players Championship format.

$2,000 $1,600 $800 $400 $200 $100

with a 12:00 noon start. Entered players must check in no later than 11:00 am on the Sunday
of the event or suffer disqualification.

4. The PDC dress code and general rules would be in effect.

5. A North American Professional Darts Players Association (NAPDPA) would be launched in
year 2 with an annual membership fee ($100 US). Membership Benefits would include the
ability to accept PDC invites to PDC main events as a result of their NAOoM ranking and
other criteria, waiver of the day membership fee that will commence in year 2, and waiver of
annual NAPDPA membership fee for all PDC PDPA members.

6. Pre-registration would be required for entry into the Pro Events. Entry fee would be $100 for
the first year and $80 with a $20 day membership fee in the 2nd and subsequent years.
Members of the NAPDPA would not be required to pay the day membership fee.

7. The North American Order of Merit
(NAOoM) would include the results from the NAPT Pro Events only. It would include results on a 2 year running total basis with the results from Pro Events in the 1st year being eliminated on the anniversary of the 3rd year of those Pro Events.

8. The NAOoM would be used to select
North American players to attend PDC Main Events such as the World Championship, the US and Canada PDC World Cup Teams, and possible other PDC Main Championship Events. Invites to North American players using the NAOoM would commence in year 2 (2013) with the NAOoM rankings including all 8 Pro Event results from years 2012 and 2013.
