After the recent announcement from the UK Government and the Chief Medical Officer that the country will be operating a tiered system of restrictions going forward and warnings of potential lockdowns ,coupled with the potential for further restrictions into the new year and early spring, the decision has been made to move the event into the early summer months to allow for the situation to ease and to give players and supporters a more certain approach that the event can go ahead in 2021. 

 

Further more the Gibraltar Sports and Leisure Autority, has greater confidence that the venue will be free to use

( currently a Nightingale hospital ) in the summer rather than early spring due to a number of factors which include - 

 

  1. Further time for the pandemic to reduce in its effectiveness around the world.
  2. The introduction of a vaccine and its potential to be rolled out across Gibraltar. 
  3. The climate in Gibraltar in June is more suited to control a corona virus in summer months.
  4. The need for Nightingale hospitals is hugely reduced which will free up venues in Gibraltar.
  5. The minimised use of restrictions on travel for all competitors around the world.
  6. The minimised use of restrictions at the event from Covid 19 for the players and supporters. 
  7. To allow the easing of more restrictions and lockdowns around the UK and Europe
  8. More certainty for players to book accommodation and flights for the summer rather than early spring. 

The event will be operated as follows:

 

TUESDAY JUNE 8TH -  JDC Virtual World Darts Championship ( Junior Event )

WEDNESDAY JUNE 9TH - JDC Virtual World Darts Championship ( Adult Event )

THURSDAY JUNE 10TH - JDC Virtual World Team League Finals ( Aults and Juniors)
