INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF DARTS
NOW IN ITS 36TH YEAR
FESTIVAL DATE - 10th to 13th March 2022
“With the world slowly coming through the devastation and challenges that Covid 19 presented, it is particularly pleasing that we can now bring you the full details of the 2022 Pokerstars IOM International Festival of darts.
At time of writing this there are still obviously no cast iron guarantees anyone can give that even next March we will all be back to normal, but thankfully every sign suggests that we will, certainly in the UK, something we can at last take confidence in.
On that assumption you will all notice numerous changes to next years Festival, (as was the intention for this year) most noticeably the Festivals support for and embracement of the WDF and their event circuit, something since the unfortunate demise of the BDO we all take much comfort in seeing, especially with so many member other member countries all over the world doing similarly.
With that embracement assured, and for no better reason than this is the IOM Festival - the longest running event of its kind in the world, courtesy of our long standing and loyal sponsors we are excited to confirm that in 2022 there will be four WDF ranking events, two each for the men and ladies.
One of these (The Classic) will carry Silver status which will provide the finalists automatic entry into the WDF Masters whilst the Poker Stars Open has been awarded Gold Status. This will reward the respective winners not just with entry into the Masters, but with the biggest plus of all automatic qualification into the WDF World finals in 2023!
Another first for next year will be the introduction of disability darts. Organised by the British Disability Darts Association (BDDA) on behalf of their IOM associate member and will include World ParaDarts ranking events for both standing and wheelchair disciplines.
On behalf of the Government, Sponsors and EDO I would like to welcome all players and supporters and hope they really enjoy their return to iconic Vila Marina ”
