No fewer than 18,000 enthusiastic darts fans bought a ticket for one of the six sessions of the Belgian Darts Open in the Oktoberhallen in Wieze. Not illogical: since the sport is regularly shown on television, darts is on the rise. Helped by the great performance of signboard Dimitri Van den Bergh.

“Five years ago we wouldn’t have taken this step anyway, but because of the Dimitri Van den Bergh effect so now it is,” said organizer Golazo. And they don’t want to doubt that. It is already certain that another round of the European Tour will take place in Belgium in 2023, in Wieze.

“Yes, that is a certainty”, says Alexander Algoet of Golazo Sports/Sportizon. There is no date yet. This year’s Belgian Darts Open normally took place in March, but was postponed to September due to corona. “We are also looking at the possibility of organizing other tournaments,” it sounds. “We are now starting this tournament and then next year, but there could also be room for a kind of gala evening with two to five international top players. An invitational tournament as is also organized abroad. In a larger accommodation than. There is certainly future prospects in this, but this is all still in the brainstorming phase.”
