Danilo Vigato claims Italian Darts Championship title

Last Saturday Jacopo Ghirardon organised the Italian Darts Championship, one of the several online tournaments taking place nowadays. He streamed several matches on his Facebookpage Diddle for the Middle. Twelve Italian players were invited to compete each other in a PDC Premier League format. All players played each other once. The matches were best of 8 legs, with a win resulting in two points for the ranking and a draw resulting in one point for the ranking.

Danilo Vigato (most right at the photo, ed.) managed to win all eleven matches and therefore won the event. Stefano Tomasetti (most left at the photo, ed.) lost only once, which he did in round ten, against Vigato who claimed the title then, because Tomasetti had already lost two points after having a draw against Mattia Pini and Michele Turetta.

Vigato said afterwards, thanks to Jacopo Ghirardon for translating: ”This tournament is born from a shared idea between friends, thinking of some of the best Italian players involving in online darts during the Covid pandemic. We found some good friends and players, we had a lot of fun and played some great games, with the likes of myself, Tomassetti, Turetta and Casotto playing very well. We would have never thought to play for 6/7 straight hours at this level. I’m very happy about this thing and I’m sure to say Italian game is rising and developing. A lot of people are also watching games online. It’s nice to see people congratulating me for the victory. A special thanks to all the players and the staff behind to give them a lot of darts to watch having a different evening.”

The rise of the Italian game was obvious in the fact Nicola Giovannini had to replace Francesco Daros last-minute. Because Francesco Daros had made it to the quarter finals of an online tournament with just under 200 entries, including well-known players like Peter Jacques, Reece Robinson, Stephen Burton and Adam Smith-Neale, organised by Dan Hutchinson with matches played in the set format taking several days. Therefore Daros wasn’t able to participate.

Jacopo Ghirardon ensured me the Italian Darts Championship is only a start, because he aims to set up a super league like the PDC German Darts League with sixteen players competing over several days with a few matches per player each day.

I'm a huge dartsfan and started, because in my opinion darts media are focusing to much on the highlights and well known players and countries of the darting world. Therefore I want to pay more attention to the dart players and countries throughout Europe.
