The European Darts Championship was the first major event in Germany in 2008 and has set standards for the future. After three years in Hasselt, Belgium, the EDC 2018 returned to its home country impressively in the venerable “Westfalenhalle” in Dortmund. After one year in Göttingen in 2019, the event will take place at the König-Pilsener-ARENA in Oberhausen in 2020.

Thanks to an approved concept, 250 darts fans per session will be able to experience the best players in the world live. There will be a mask obligation in the whole hall and immediately before the entrance the hands must be disinfected.
Furthermore the social distancing rules must be regarded.

The best 32 players after the four European Tour events this year will qualify for the EDC. There will be no draw, the games will be determined by the ranking position. The number one of the European Order of Merit then meets the 32, the 2 meets the 31, etc. A total of half a million £ prize money will be up for grabs.

Compared to previous years, EDC 2020 has a different schedule. On Thursday there will be a long session in which all games of the first round will be played. Friday continues with a double session, on Saturday and Sunday only one session takes place.
