WDF Europe Cup Men Overall
Since 1978 the best players from Europe battle for the WDF Europe Cup. In 1982, the ladies get their own WDF Europe Cup. Until 2012 the two best women from each country fight for the Cup, the teams are extended to four women in 2014. Traditionally the English have been dominant in the history of darts, this tournament is no different.
The 21st edition was recently held in Budapest, Hungary in 2018. In 2020 it is not possible to play because of the Corona virus. Therefore, the next WDF Europe will be played in Spain in 2022.
In the individual events the English players are, particularly in the early years, almost impossible to beat, but when it comes to the overall ranking, they are even more dominant if possible. The sum of the team, singles and pairs events is won by them the first ten editions. Only in 1998, it is Wales that breaks the dominance. In total England wins 14 editions. Netherlands is currently the only other multiple winner with four victories in 2004, 2006, 2012 and 2016. Denmark and Scotland are also, like Wales, the strongest once.
John Lowe and Eric Bristow are seven times part of the winning England team and are the most successful players. Martin Phillips is the player who has most often participated with 13 participations; Martin Adams is the only other player who plays in ten WDF Europe Cups.
England is the defending champion. Nigel Heydon, Paul Hogan, Scott Mitchell & Daniel Day won in Budapest in 2018.
