Gerwyn Price calls for major change to World Cup of Darts: 'We need to spread it about a bit'

Gerwyn Price is calling on a change of format for the World Cup of Darts following Wales' success in Frankfurt over the weekend.

Gerwyn Price wants to see the World Cup of Darts hosted by the country that wins it after tasting more success in the tournament in Frankfurt over the weekend.

Price and Jonny Clayton beat a Scotland team comprising of Peter Wright and Gary Anderson in the final to claim the trophy for the second time in four years.
However, Price feels that there are currently too many tournaments in the UK and Europe and has put forward a proposal to host the next edition of the Nations tournament in the country that won the previous edition.
And since 'The Iceman' won the World Cup of Darts with Clayton last weekend, it should therefore take place in Cardiff next year.
"Yeah I think that would be good, I think it gives you more incentive. If me and Jonny went onto win this tournament, you'd think oh we can get this tournament in Cardiff. If Peter and Gary win, it goes to Scotland."

And while the PDC are unlikely to be on board with that suggestion, especially if a country like Australia wins the tournament, Price feels that should not be an issue.

He added: "(If Australia wins) then everyone's got to travel. They've got to travel up, it doesn't matter. You've got to put your hand in your pocket, there are always supporters down there. We're doing the World Series, we're traveling to Australia and New Zealand. Let's give them something back.
"Too many tournaments in Europe and England, we need to spread it about a bit."
