Winmau and the Spanish Darts Federation Announce Agreement
Winmau, the world’s leading darts brand, has underlined its commitment to support the continued expansion of the global game by announcing a three-year sponsorship of Spanish organising body, the Federación Española de Dardos (FED).
The deal, in which the FED will use Winmau’s class-leading Blade 5 dartboards in all its competitions, comes at a time when Spanish darts is booming.
Formed in 1990 by a group pf players from across the country, the FED was established to consolidate darts under one organisational structure led by president, Miguel Pernas. Representation at events such as the Winmau World Masters, The European Cup and World Championship qualifiers quickly followed.
With new, younger leadership in the form of President Luis Martin who was appointed in 2016, the FED has continued to expand with its membership almost doubling in the last year alone and more Spanish players competing in major tournaments across the world than ever before.
More than 600 players will compete at upcoming Spanish national events, and the FED recently announced the Winmau Vizcaya International Open which is one of only six BDO category A+ ranked tournaments for men and women.
“The depth of darting talent in Spain is quite simply amazing,” says Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ian Flack. “Their top players are quickly becoming household names thanks to some high-quality performances on the world stage. Darts is booming in Spain thanks to the hard work and dedication of the FED and I am delighted we are able to support them.”
Luis Martin, President of the FED, added: “The passion for darts in Spain is incredible. Through the FED we want to enable Spanish players to realise their potential whether that is at local, national or international level. Winmau is the biggest name in the sport and it is simply fantastic to have their support.”
