Meanwhile PDC chief executive Matt Porter has revealed that there are still potential issues surrounding foreign players having to quarantine for 14 days.
The Summer Series of Players Championships is set to commence on July 8 with the Matchplay to follow soon after. He told the Darts Show:
“The big issue at the moment which we need to resolve is the 14-day quarantine for overseas visitors to the UK”
If there is some form of exemption for sportsmen on that which we understand is being discussed, then that would certainly help the situation.“
We have got an obligation to 128 Tour Card holders. If there are one or two that have problems getting back into the UK, whether it is travel or their own personal situation, then they might be unlucky.“
“We can’t leave 124 people at home because four people can’t get in. That would not be the right thing to do.”
“It would be unfortunate for any individual who wasn’t able to come back, but assuming that number was a small percentage of the overall field of Tour Card holders, then we would need to look after the majority.”
