  • The PDC Asian Tour was introduced in 2018 to great success as players from Asia region competed across six weekends. 

    Each weekend will feature one event per day, with US$10,000 in prize money on offer including US$3,000 to the winner. The top four players on the PDC Asian Tour Order of Merit after Event 12 will qualify for the PDC World Darts Championship.

    In 2019 Lourence Ilagan of the Philippines topped the Asian Tour Order of Merit and joined by fellow-Asian stars Seigo Asada, Paul Lim, Noel Malicdem and Yuki Yamada at the William Hill World Darts Championship.

    Darts across Asia will receive a boost in September with the introduction of the US$100,000 PDC Asian Championship in Fukuoka.

    The four-day 2022 PDC Asian Championship from September 22-25 will give players across the region a chance to secure one of four spots in the Cazoo World Darts Championship as well as scoop the US$15,000 top prize.

    The 48-player main event on September 24-25 will be preceded by two days of Asian Series qualifiers in Fukuoka, with four qualifying events being split across September 22-23.

    The last four players from each qualifier will secure a place in the main event, alongside a further 10 players from an Asian Series Order of Merit.

    The main event will also feature the eight players who will compete in the 2022 World Cup of Darts for Japan, Philippines, Singapore and Hong Kong, plus one additional qualifier per country.

    A further ten regional qualifiers - being held in mainland Bahrain, China, India, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and the UAE - will each produce one qualifier.

    The PDC Asian Championship will be streamed through PDCTV for all subscribers worldwide across all four days. Action from the qualifiers will also be streamed through Felix Darts' YouTube channel across Asia.

    "We're delighted to be able to introduce the PDC Asian Championship as we look to bring competitive darts back to the continent after Covid," said PDC Chief Executive Matt Porter.

    "It's been a long two years for our Asian Tour players and we really wanted to give them something to look forward to before hopefully bringing the full tour back in 2023.

    "With the chance to qualify for the World Championship, as well as be crowned the first ever PDC Asian Champion, this is a huge boost for Asian players and an exciting addition to our calendar.

    "We'd also like to thank IDCDARTS and Felix for their support in staging the 2022 PDC Asian Championship as we boost darts across Asia."

    Due to the ongoing situation surrounding the Coronavirus epidemic in Asia, players are reminded of the advice to have appropriate travel insurance should any further changes to the schedule be required, and to only confirm flight and/or hotel bookings once their entry is confirmed.
