Major League Darts Products

The MLD patches are in and we're in the process of creating a store for the patches along with shirts and other products.

Where does the 10% or 15% go?

Good question. In a nutshell: things cost money, and people are spending a lot of time organizing and setting things up to host these events.

For Local events, half goes to the local tournament organizer/director: posters, their time, and other costs... or how ever they decide to break it down (Shirt for the winner, plaque/Trophies etc) and the other half to MLD: which pays for, paypal and credit card fees, web hosting, domain names, banners, use of logo, Tournament Computer Program, etc.

MLD "local" payouts, what are they?

The payout structure for a MLD "local" event is similar to the MLD Tour Stop payouts except the entry fee is less and the number of players is less.

Everything is percentage based. 90% payout is guaranteed, so it scales with the number of participants.

In a nutshell: Consolation winner gets their entry fee back or last paid spot

What is Major League Darts?

Major League Darts (MLD) is a new pro dart tour across the US and Canada with the goal to "Create the next North American World Darts Champion".

Play the best players in the US and Canada in fewer events each weekend, get more legs in, and earn more money.

When is MLD coming to my city?

We love that people are asking this question and want to see a Major League Darts (MLD) Tour Stop come to their area. There is a 3 year rollout plan that has been created to allow a balance of events in the various parts of the countries. MLD is designed as a travel tour and people need to come out of their comfort areas to make it work. We're expecting only 30% participation from the local players, the rest would be from around the countries.
