The WDF World Cup is a darts tournament organized by the World Darts Federation and has been held biennially since 1977. The tournament has featured men's events since the beginning, while women's events were added in 1983 and youth events in 1999.

The next World Cup will be held in Antalya, Turkey, in October 2015.

The event used to be broadcast on ITV in the United Kingdom, but coverage of the tournament ceased after the 1987 World Cup.

Tournament structure[edit]

Men's national teams participating in the WDF World Cup consist of four players per country, competing as singles, pairs and in a four-player team event. Starting in 2015, women's teams will also consist of four players each and compete in these three types of events, having previously comprised only two players for singles and pairs competitions. Youth teams include one male and one female player under the age of 18 who compete in their respective singles competitions as well as a mixed pairs event.

Points are scored depending on placement in the various events, with the national teams achieving the highest points totals being crowned WDF World Cup Champions in the three categories of men, women and youth.

The WDF announced in early 2014 that a women's team (fours) event would be added to the schedule for the first time at the upcoming 2014 WDF Europe Cup as well as future WDF Europe and World Cup tournaments.[1]
