The Spring Cup was an international darts competition constested by nations from continental Europe. It was run by the European Darts Council. It featured singles and team events for men and women. The tournament ran from 1986 to 2012.
Held annually since 1986, the Spring Cup was run by the European Darts Council. It was the third largest competition for European nations behind the WDF World Cup and WDF Europe Cup. The competition was referred to as the 'small' Europe Cup since there were only singles and team events held for men and women.
Only the nations from continental Europe were allowed to enter. Established darting nations such as England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland were exlcuded so 'smaller' less established nations had a chance at success. There was no competition held in 1989 or 2002, but the 2009 edition was cancelled. The 2012 edition was the last. After some speculation, it was announced the competition would not return in 2013 as there were not enough countries willing to enter the competition.
