    Bulls-Eye News
    The PDC North American Pro Tour

    It’s official!
    The PDC will launch a North American Pro Tour (NAPT) that is designed to grow each year and sustain itself after the first 3 years. Each NAPT event will be held over a weekend with
    the Pro Event being held on the Sunday. An associated tournament or warm-up event would precede the Pro Event on the Friday and Saturday.

    The program is designed to sustain itself after the first three years meaning that there would be at least 8 Pro Events in 2015 and subsequent years. Success of the program will mean additional growth
    in year 4 (2015) in terms of increased prize money per event and/or an increase in the number of Pro Events throughout North America in 2015.

    The following details outline the PDC NAPT program for the first three years. At the present time, one of the 3 Pro Events to be held in 2012 has been confirmed, the London Ontario NAPT Pro
    Event to be held on Sunday, August 26, 2012 at the Hilton London Ontario. The 2 additional Pro Events will be announced as soon as they are confirmed and will be posted on the Bull’s-Eye News
    website: bullseyenews.com

    1. The PDC NA Pro Tour would be open only to North American residents.

    2. Each Pro Event in the PDC North America Pro Tour would consist of a guaranteed $10,000
    singles event with the PDC Players Championship format.


    1st 2nd T-4 T-8 T-16 T-32
    $2,000$1,600$800 $400 $200 $100
    Format: Best of 11 legs of 501 throughout.
    • 3 PDC NAPT events in 2012
    • 5 PDC NAPT events in 2013
    • 8 PDC NAPT events in 2014

    3. Each event would take place over a weekend with the Pro Event scheduled on the Sunday
    with a 12:00 noon start. Entered players must check in no later than 11:00 am on the Sunday
    of the event or suffer disqualification.

    4. The PDC dress code and general rules would be in effect.

    5. A North American Professional Darts Players Association (NAPDPA) would be launched in
    year 2 with an annual membership fee ($100 US). Membership Benefits would include the
    ability to accept PDC invites to PDC main events as a result of their NAOoM ranking and
    other criteria, waiver of the day membership fee that will commence in year 2, and waiver of
    annual NAPDPA membership fee for all PDC PDPA members.

    6. Pre-registration would be required for entry into the Pro Events. Entry fee would be $100 for
    the first year and $80 with a $20 day membership fee in the 2nd and subsequent years.
    Members of the NAPDPA would not be required to pay the day membership fee.

    7. The North American Order of Merit
    (NAOoM) would include the results from the NAPT Pro Events only. It would include results on a 2 year running total basis with the results from Pro Events in the 1st year being eliminated on the
    anniversary of the 3rd year of those Pro Events.

    8. The NAOoM would be used to select
    North American players to attend PDC Main Events such as the World Championship, the US and Canada PDC World Cup Teams, and possible other PDC Main Championship Events. Invites to
    North American players using the NAOoM would commence in year 2 (2013) with the NAOoM rankings including all 8 Pro Event results from years 2012 and 2013.

    The following PDC NAPT Event has been scheduled. Two additional Pro Tour events have yet to be scheduled but will be shortly and announced on the Bull’s-Eye News website: bullseyenews.com

    Hopefully the organizers will use some critical thinking when selecting the locations.

    How many large ADO sanctioned tournaments are going to give up their Sunday events for a PDC event? Will it help their bottom line?I don't know the answer...just thinking out loud.

    Legitimate questions Dwalsh, probably will have to wait and see. From a logistical point of view I don't think it is going to increase the turnout by much if at all. Assuming that why couldn't you hold the PDC shoot and an amatuer shoot at the same time on Sunday. How many are going to plunk down $100 to shoot, probably only the best shooters who have the potential to qualify for the WC. Certainly should not affect the womens shoots as only half dozen women across the country probably would have a go at this anyways.

    As far as the bottom line for the events holding a PDC shoot, I think it will hurt unless they do something on Sunday for the rest. My guess is about 60 shooters at a given trny would be willing to enter the PDC events. With the right ideas for amateur events on Sunday along side the PDC shoot one could keep participants at the venue. I think we can agree that the avg trny goer is not going to stick around to watch a PDC shoot most american darters are more interested in participating and not spectating.

    I applaud the efforts of the PDC in trying to make something happen, the upside potential in market value for darts in the USA is too great for them to walk away. I think this is a step in the right direction if it is used to seperate the Pros from the amateurs on a regualr basis. In the long term it may even result in an increase in turnout for amatuer shooters if they run a parallel event on Sunday.

    Lot of questions time will tell if it will work.

    Well, the first 3 events for 2012....
    3 dates have been proposed on weekends that
    DON"T have any existing ADO/BDO/PDC events
    --if those dates are used (and i'm unsure what is being decided) events will have to be built around them.
    and point understood and taken cannibal about sunday and
    other amaetur events being run... i would hope we (as a US darts
    community) can get something going on these sunday events that would
    retain some eyeballs to watch what happens
    (would that mean coverage of some sort, maybe
    Darts Around the World?)

    I believe the hope in the near future, to expand the # of events,
    the 2 event/ sat-sun system used in the UK will be implemented

    So, the # of events won't equate to # of weekends used

    Agree with dwalsh & cannibal. that you're going to have to have supporting events. If the PDC is the one putting this on why and I'm just asking why couldn't they rent a smaller conference room say like Virginia Beach or Philly where you already have most of the best playing? Seems like a package deal would be cheaper for the PDC

    jwarner: asked the same question myself why doesn't the PDC work along side with existing tournaments in North America? My guess is that the larger tournaments affiliated with the WDF of course are a no go on this. But if I am a tournament director of a smaller tournament that has been around a while I am on the phone to the PDC asking how I can get the event. It is guarenteed great money with a 3 yr commitment. Is it really an issue of tournament needs to provide ADO pts to get attendance? If so have a 501 singles Friday night ADO pts, Cricket singles Saturday. The chesney I know has a 501 pro shoot on Friday night anyways why can't that have ADO pts attached to it? And to boot these PDC events are open only for NA players so it creates even more incentive for those one the cusp to have a go at them.

    I would like to see the PDC events housed in the same building but run independently of say the Philly tournament. To many tournaments have already been lost. Maybe change scheduling around where you run womens events back to back or so to free-up time for the PDC. I saw where BEN is looking at building events once again and I think if they take this course you will have the same result as we had with the Boston tournament Very low turn-out. Just my opinion.

    Think they will start in the east and work their way west in a while, but there should be some better updates coming on the Darts Around the World podcast on Wed. Jan. 25th which will be posted on itunes on Thursday

    It can. The tournament can designate which singles events receive ADO points. There are some random restrictions here and there, but it can be done.

    None in 2012, none West of the Mississippi river...
    2013 might see one
    2014 should see one

    But they are definitely catering to the East even though 50% of the North American's who have played in the PDC WC in the last 4 years have lived west of the Mississippi River.

    And from what I've heard not even a lot in the Central part. Will get almost 1 in 2012 (last site hasn't been finalized yet). it will either be 3 East or 2 East and 1 Central in 2012

    Quite an impressive list of players for the first NAPT tournament on Sunday!!!

    http://www.pdc.tv/page/NewsdeskDetail/0,,10180~2853577,00.html

    And over 100 players taking part including some ladies is not bad either...
