The World Cup of Darts will be contested by 32 nations this year. Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld of the Netherlands are the defending champions.

BetVictor has a long-standing relationship with the event’s operator, the Professional Darts Corporation, and title-sponsored the Masters earlier this year.
