2023 Isle of Man Festival of Darts
The 37th Isle of Man Darts Festival
“The Isle of Man darts festival is undoubtedly one of the most iconic, eagerly anticipated and best attended events in the WDF calendar. For three nearly four decades thousands of darts enthusiasts have been flocking to the island not just to participate, not just lured by the guarantee of over £35,000 in prize money, but almost uniquely, just to be a part of what many consider to be the biggest 'party event' of the year.
Whilst the main singles event, one of the most prestigious titles in WDF darts has been won by a couple of fairly decent players over the years, including the likes of Gary Anderson, Dave Chisnall, Scott Waites, Dennis Harbour, Steve Bunting, Robbie Green, Darryl Fitton not to mention a certain Phil Taylor whoever he is, but for the thousands that return and make the pilgrimage every year though obviously really important, it’s not all about winning, it's also about having a great time, meeting up with old friends and having a few days away with your mates, or in many cases with your whole darts team.
In that respect the IOM darts event is a bit like the darting equivalent of the Cheltenham racing festival, where so many of those who go year after year actually book the following year before they even leave the one they're at.
It is also important to us at the EDO that we cater for all our players attending - all our customers who support the events we organise and in doing so the more players who return home with prize money the happier we are.
It’s also why we have arranged as many different events within the festival as possible.
Entry fees for most events can and must all be paid on line but please note that particularly for all the ranking events, there will be no bookings taken on the day, everyone has to be pre-booked into these events to allow us not only to post the full draw sheets prior to arrival but also to ensure we can start on the advertised times and to assist this online entries will close on 3rd March
If anyone has any questions whatsoever be it on the events, accommodation travel or indeed anything else to do with any part of the festival just pop into the contacts page and we will do our best to answer them for you all.
Whilst the Festival is now under our guardianship we are very mindful that the IOM International Darts Festival is the players event, and it will always remain the players event, so equally if you have any advice, comments or suggestions then again please feel free to share them with us, and please when you finish reading this pop into, 'like' and hopefully share the Isle of Man Darts Festival FB page where you will be kept up to date with all news, and developments as well as being able to take part in numerous free to enter competitions.
