Originating in medieval England, darts first came from military camps to the walls of pubs and then to professional competition grounds. The game, which is popular among amateurs worldwide, had established its professional rules by the 20th century, which is when the first professional organisations also appeared.
The Professional Darts Corporation, which is responsible for the most important international tournaments, has been organising the European Tour since 2012. This year’s series started in February 2022 and lasts until October. The stop in the Hungarian capital is the 10th of 13 events overall. The first official PDC event was held in Budapest in the autumn of 2021, followed by the large-scale Budapest Darts Gala the following spring.
