WDF World Cup

The WDF World Cup is the only real "World" tournament of the WDF. It is played since 1977 every second years, in the years between the World Cups the regionally limited cups like the Europe Cup, the Americas Cup and the Asia Pacific Cup take place.
The World Cup is played in alternating member countries of the WDF. Each member country can apply for it, the WDF then decides which country best fulfils the eligibility criteria and gets the acceptance. The chosen country then has to organise the World Cup.

The World Cup started as a men's tournament, in 1983 a women's tournament was added and since 1999 a youth tournament is played as well.
The men have to play a team tournament, a pairs tournament and a single tournament, the women play pairs and singles which count for a "team" rating. The youth play girls and boys singles and a mixed pairs tournament - which is their team competition.
Every country can send a national team consisting of four men, two women, one boy and one girl to take part in the World Cup.
In 2015 it was changed to four men, four women and two boys and two girls.
All tournaments together count for the overall winner. In all those years the tournament is already played till now only England, Wales and the Netherlands were overall winners with England winning most often.

There is a very big difference between the World Cup and all other Major tournaments - the World Cup doesn't offer any price money it's really only played for the honour.
