Why are you using the DartsDatabase Ranking system and not the ADO/NDFC/PDC one?

Major League Darts (MLD) is a new organization that encompasses players that play in many different organizations. Choosing one of the existing ranking systems from a single organization would not makes sense.

The Darts Database Rankings (DBB) includes events from ADO, NFDC, BDO, WDF, PDC, MLD, and almost any other tournament on the planet.

If you have placed in a tournament in the past year, you are in the the DBB. If your country is not associated with your name, please send them an email to get that connected.

What about Chalkers?

Chalkers or Scorers or Markers, whichever term you use are assigned in all Major League Darts events.

No one likes to chalk, but everyone like to complain when they don't have a chalker.

The Round Robin phase of events all have a match order and an assigned chalker for each match.
The knockout phase of events will see the loser of the previous match on that board act as the chalker. The first match in the knockout phase will also have a chalker assigned based on the way the bracket is drawn.

  • Chalking is a requirement of all players

Where is Cricket?

There are no cricket events at Major League Darts (MLD) Tour Stops or "local" tournaments.

Look at the mission statement of MLD: "To Create the Next North American World Darts Champion". 501 is the international game of darts and playing a lot of legs against better players is the goal of all MLD events.

How many legs will I play?

It really depends on the size of the round robin group you are in.

You will play a minimum of 17-28 legs (depending on group size) if you lose in the first round of the Consolation bracket.

You will play a minimum of 20-31 legs (depending on group size) if you lose in the first round of the Main bracket.

Why a Consolation bracket?

See 'why a round robin' question for most of the answers.

We want people to feel as though they have gotten their dollars amount when they play in a MLD event. Most people know the general pecking order of darters, and sadly most of us fall in the lower section; we want to give those players an opportunity to win a tournament as well.

Why a Round Robin?

Major League Darts' (MLD) philosophy is to give the darter the most darting value for their dollar. The more legs ones plays for your entry fee the better. There are many darting events one can choose to attend, and at a MLD event, we want everyone to play as many legs as they can.

No one wants to travel to an event and loose in the first round after playing 2 legs of darts. We want people to get a lot of games for their entry fee.

Is Major League Darts affiliated with the ADO or NDFA?

No. Major League Darts (MLD) is a separate new organization that is not affiliated with any other organization at this time.

Major League Darts is affiliated with Dart Players New York (DPNY), King of the Hill (KOTH), and the PDC North American Pro Tour (PDCNAPT). Participants in each of these Affiliate Tour events receive points in the MLD Regional Ranking System.

Where are the Ladies events?

All Major League Darts are Open events. There are no separate events based on gender at this time.

A MLD "local" event may tag itself as a Womens/Ladies Only event, but that would be at the discretion of the local organizer.

If there are sufficient pre-registrations at a particular MLD Tour Stop for Women, then there is the possibility of having a separate Women's event, but the main event will remain an Open event, and a woman may enter either one.

MLD and Brian on the Dartsaroundtheworld.com podcast

So, Brian was interviewed for the darts around the world podcast recently to discuss Major League Darts.


Singles Payouts

The main focus of the MLD series of tournaments is on the 2 singles events at each Tour Stop. MLD is taking a different approach to the payout structure: It's based on the number of players.

The more players that show up, the bigger the purse will be.
