The WDF Europe Cup is a darts tournament held biennially since 1978. The tournament consists of a team championship, a pairs championship and a singles championship. All events have a men's competition, and a women's competition (since 1982).

Tournament structure[edit]

The country achieving the highest total of points from all three events shall be crowned the WDF Europe Cup Champions. In the event of a tie for first place those countries shall be declared the Joint WDF Europe Cup Champions.

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 2014 Europe Cup as well as future WDF Europe and World Cup tournaments.[1] The most recent Europe Cup was held in 2016, in Egmond aan Zee, Netherlands.
