Following last year's inaugural event, the second Cash Converters World Cup of Darts will be staged at Hamburg's Alsterdorfer Stadthalle from February 3-5, featuring 24 two-man teams representing countries from around the world.
 
The unique televised event will feature a combination of both doubles and singles matches over three days of play.
 
The PDC is delighted to confirm that Cash Converters has retained their title sponsorship of the £150,000 tournament, which will also be shown live in Holland, Germany, Australia and the Middle East, as well as syndicated worldwide in highlights packages.
 
"We thank Cash Converters for their continued support of the Professional Darts Corporation and our major events," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.

"Both the 2010 World Cup of Darts and last December's Cash Converters Players Championship provided great drama and excitement and we're thrilled that Cash Converters has continued to back this emerging event."
 
David Patrick, chief executive of Cash Converters UK, added: "We are delighted to be title sponsors of the PDC World Cup of Darts again this year.
 
"We recognise that the grassroots popularity of darts is a perfect for our brand and we are pleased to invest in this prestigious event as the sport continues to grow, welcoming new fans year on year."

The First Round of the Cash Converters World Cup of Darts sees the teams ranked 9-24 play off in knockout Doubles matches, before the Second Round sees the top eight seeds - including reigning champions the Netherlands, and the English pair of Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis - enter the fray.
 
The Second Round will be split across two sessions, with Singles matches being played on Friday night and Doubles games being held on Saturday afternoon, as team's battle for places in Saturday night's Quarter-Finals.
 
The Netherlands - represented by Raymond van Barneveld and Vincent van der Voort - were drawn against Austria or New Zealand as they bid to retain the title they won in December 2010.
 
England's Taylor and Lewis have been drawn against Canada or Hungary, with Scotland - featuring Gary Anderson and Peter Wright - playing either Spain, who were semi-finalists in the last World Cup as Antonio Alcinas and Carlos Rodriguez lit up the tournament, or South Africa.
 
Wales, the runner-up to the Netherlands in 2010, will play either Finland or Croatia, Australia will meet either the Republic of Ireland or Malaysia as they bid to better their previous semi-final finish and Germany meet the USA or Philippines.
 
Northern Ireland take on Gibraltar or Denmark, and Belgium play Sweden or Japan in the other contest, with the draw having been made by PDC Director Rod Harrington and PDPA Chief Executive Alan Warriner-Little during Qualifying School last weekend.
