The European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen has become the third PDC European Tour event to be postponed as a result of the Coronavirus epidemic.

The PDC announced on Tuesday that the European Darts Open in Leverkusen and the German Darts Grand Prix in Munich would not be taking place following measures put in place by federal governments in the regions of Germany.

This measure has also been adopted now in Stuttgart, meaning that the year’s planned second European Tour event in Sindelfingen from March 20-22 will be postponed.

The PDC are working with partners PDC Europe to schedule new dates for the events, with the possibility that other planned tournaments may move in the calendar to accommodate them.

Tickets already purchased for the events will remain valid for the equivalent session of the re-arranged event, or refunds will be available.

The Tour Card holder qualifier due to take place in Barnsley on Friday March 13 is set to go ahead as planned, as are the double-header of ProTour events on Saturday and Sunday.

A Players Championship double-header has also been added to the PDC calendar on March 28-29 in Milton Keynes, with further schedule amendments to be confirmed in due course.

Players Championship events are held behind closed doors and are streamed exclusively live online.

Regular contact is being maintained between the PDC and all venues, including for the Premier League, and that currently the schedule remains unaffected pending any restrictions enforced by the UK government.
