Among the 23 teams that entered the tournament in 2010 there was only one team favourite; team England. The Spaniards Antonio Alcinas and Carlos Rogriguez who would get to the semi-finals however knocked out the England pair of Phil Taylor and James Wade in the second round very surprisingly. The tournament was suddenly wide open with the exit of the England team. The Belgians lost in the same round to the Canadians and Netherlands represented by Raymond van Barneveld and Co Stompé was too strong for the team of Germany. Of the eight seeded teams only the team from Northern Ireland lost in addition to England, they lost to Austria.

During this first edition of the World Cup the quarterfinals were played in groups. In group A the Netherlands and Australia went through at the expense of Canada and Austria, and in group B it was Wales that along with the surprising Spaniards went through to the semi-finals at the expense of Scotland and USA.

In the semi-finals Netherlands team was up against team Spain. Partly because the Spaniards had already surprised England and Scotland it seemed to be a match that could go two sides. That turned out to be quite disappointing because after the fourth single match the game was already over. Both Raymond van Barneveld and Co Stompé won both their singles against Alcinas Antonio and Carlos Rodriguez and thus placed themselves for the final. In the other semi-final, it was a lot more exciting. Wales with Barrie Bates and Mark Webster played against the Australian team of Simon Whitlock and Paul Nicholson. Webster won his single over Paul Nicholson, but the other three matches all went to Whitlock and Nicholson. Still, the game was not over because for every single party counted for 1 point and 2 points were given to the pairs match. That pairs match was won in an eleventh decisive leg by the men from Wales and so the score was 3-3. What followed was a sudden death leg and that was again won by Wales earned them a place in the final.

In that final Mark Webster won both his singles, but Barrie Bates lost them both. This made the score 2-2 and the decision would be made in the pairs match. It was the Dutch pair Stompé and Van Barneveld who proved the strongest with an 8-5 score line and so they were crowned the first ever PDC World Cup champions.
