WDF World Cup Men Teams 2019

The 22nd edition of the WDF World Cup was held in Cluj-Napoca in Romania from 7 to 12 October. All records in terms of number of participants were broken. No less then 52 men teams, 46 ladies teams and 19 countries also sent their youth to Romania. It would be a World Cup without any incidents and with a fantastic organization which is an incredible compliment to the organizing country that itself is relatively very small in darts.

There are not many surprises in the group stage of the team tournament. Russia does not survive its group because it loses to Croatia and Australia. And also Germany does not get through its group, they lose to Sweden and Ukraine. The biggest surprise, however, is the elimination of Ireland in the group stage. Canada and Hong Kong are too powerful for the Irish.

Hong Kong continues its good form in the knockout phase. Under the leadership of good-old Paul Lim, they beat Croatia, the United States, Serbia and, surprisingly, England in the semi-final. With this, Hong Kong ensures its first ever medal on an escalator. Wales will be the opponent in the final. The Welshmen beat Isle of Man, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands in the semi-finals.

The final is an equal battle in which Wales always has the lead and eventually Wales manages to pull that lead over the finish line. With 9-7 they add this title to their name. After the first edition in 1977 and a victory in 1997, this is the third time that Wales has won the team event.
