The PDC North American Pro Tour was established in 2012. A key part in the development played the owner of the American darts magazine BEN
(Bulls Eye New's) Jay Tomlinson who will officiate as tournament director.
So now those American tournaments will be organised with the help of BEN, BEN publishes the flyers und players have to register with BEN. In 2013
a North American Professional Darts Players Association shall be founded which will be financed in parts by members fees.
From 2013 the tour is called North American Championship Tour.
It is planned that the number of tournaments will grow from year to year and that the tour will in three years will be self sustained. In 2015 at
least eight tournaments shall be part of the tour and the price money should be increased as well.
The price money won will be included in the North American Order of Merit. This NAOoM will be a two year ranking and it will serve to decide which
players from North America will be invited to the PDC Majors especially to the PDC World Championship and the PDC World Cup but might be some other
majors as well. This regulation will apply from 2013 onwards while in 2012 just the leading player after all three tournaments should he not have
qualified otherwise will be invited to the PDC World Championship. Should he have already qualified the second ranked player will move up.
2013 all price money from playing the New World Dart Series events is included in the NAOoM as well.
Only residents of North America can take part in the NAPT.
In 2012 three tournaments will be played - all on a Sunday. On Friday and Saturday Warm-up tournaments are offered - with price money as well but
it doesn't count for the NAOoM. During the weekend in Canada in August on Saturday the Canadian qualifier for the PDC Unicorn Youth Championship
will be played
The North American Championship Tour ended with 2013. Since 2014 only a single tournament is organised as qualifier for the PDC World Championship - the PDC Spectacular - which usually takes place in August in Canada.
