With the second Remote Darts League due to begin today, geo-location technology specialist GeoComply has been named as the title sponsor of the tournament.
The RDL will welcome 16 players, consisting of the four finalists from the first RDL, and 12 top-ranked players from around the world: four women and eight men.
“It’s great to see four top North American darts players including Larry Butler, Stacey Pace, Joe Chaney and David Cameron in the new GeoComply Remote Darts League,” said David Briggs, CEO of GeoComply. “With league approval from regulators in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the 120+ matches will be traded across a range of US sportsbooks.”
The RDL is expected to attract international audiences, with the 16 players representing 10 countries across three continents.
With sports tournaments across the world largely still on hold, the GeoComply Remote Darts League has been dubbed a ‘fantastic advertisement for live international sport’ which could extend beyond lockdown.
“It’s certainly ambitious,” added Kevin Dale from host organisation Farawaysports. “RDL1 was a challenge, but through the platform supplier FSB we were able to establish a unique live contest complete with data feeds, odds feeds, video feeds, Youtube channels and widespread bookmaker distribution across Europe. This time round, we’re going global.”
