WDF World Cup Men Teams 1993

Sahara Hotel, Las Vegas
From: Wednesday 13 October 1993
Till: Saturday 16 October 1993

World Cup IX was played in the largest gambling city in the world; Las Vegas for the second time in history. Just like two years ago in Zandvoort Netherlands, 32 countries toed the oche.

In the team event the first semi-final was between England and the USA. England, took the oche with a brand new team after the 1992 split in the world of darts between the BDO and WDC (later PDC). This year Kevin Kenny, Ronnie Baxter, Dave Askew and Steve Beaton had to uphold the honour of the English team. They reached the final quite easily by beating host nation USA (Larry Butler, Dave Kelly, Tony Payne & Gerald Verrier) with 9-3. In the other semi-final Wales (Eric Burden, Martin Phillips, Sean Palfrey & Ken Thomas) played Scotland (Ronnie Sharp, Trevor Nurse, Alan Brown & Mike Veitch). Wales quickly took a 7-1 lead, but the Scots came back to 8-6. Wales eventually won it, 9-6.

In the final, the England team quickly took a comfortable 5-0 lead and never gave Wales a chance to come back in the match. England, with a completely new team, won the team event 9-3.
