The full draw, schedule, team line-ups, results, format and odds from the BetVictor World Cup of Darts, which takes place in Hamburg from June 6-9.

There will be 32 nations bidding for glory at the annual pairs event, which this year takes place at the Barclaycard Arena, with Netherlands favourite to win the title for a fifth time and third in succession.

However, there will be no Raymond van Barneveld in the Dutch line-up as Jermaine Wattimena's higher ranking means he's earned his place to play alongside Michael van Gerwen.

England's Rob Cross and Michael Smith will be highly fancied as will Scotland duo Peter Wright and Gary Anderson, who were runners-up 12 months ago.

Here we have everything you need including the players taking part for each country, the draw and daily scheduled - which will be updated with results and links to daily reviews - plus details of the competition format, the latest odds, prize money information and past winners.
