Unicorn have opted to strongly support three of their current squad in order to consolidate for the coming years. The elder statesman of the darts industry seemed to have been shedding players recently with Kim Huybrechts departure and other rumoured changes. The statement below may show these moves in a different light:
We are delighted to announce that three Team Unicorn stars have been promoted to our Maestro category of players ahead of the next phase of new products to be released for our Unicorn 2021 range.
Belgian star Dimitri Van den Bergh, Chris Dobey and Jeffrey de Zwaan have all reached the landmark of entering the Top 20 of the PDC Order of Merit since the turn of the year.
Van den Bergh, last month claimed his maiden PDC televised title by being crowned World Matchplay Champion in the behind closed doors event in Milton Keynes, surging upto World no.12 in the process.
Dobey meanwhile, reached two major televised Semi-Finals during the latter part of 2019 and has risen to a career high World no.18 subsequently, showcasing his undoubted talent along the way.
Dutchman, de Zwaan, finished 2019 in 20th spot in the World after a sensational two years on the PDC Tour which included a run to the Semi-Finals of the 2018 World Matchplay in Blackpool, where he defeated Michael Van Gerwen, Adrian Lewis & Dave Chisnall along the way.
Both Dobey and de Zwaan will once again be participants in the PDC Premier League later this month, under the Contender/Challenger format which has freshened up the line-up of players over the past two years in the popular concept.
Player Liaison Manager Matt Rankin commented ‘’It has been incredibly pleasing to see the progression of all three players over the past 18 months or so, especially with Dimitri winning the World Matchplay. All three players are incredibly talented and fully deserve their promotion to Maestro and I am sure Chris & Jeffrey will be looking to join Dimitri in the Major winners enclosure in the not too distant future’’.
New products for our newly promoted trio will be released over the coming weeks and months > https://www.playwiththebest.com/darts/new-2021-launches.html
