The draw, schedule and results from the 2020 World Cup of Darts, which takes place in Salzburgarena, Austria from November 6-8.

There are 32 nations bidding for glory at the annual pairs event, with Michael van Gerwen's Netherlands favourite to win the title for a fifth time.

Defending champions Scotland will not be represented by the super powers who won them the trophy in 2019 - Peter Wright and Gary Anderson - so it will instead be down to John Henderson and Robert Thornton to retain it.

You can follow the event unfold with the team line-ups, draw, schedule, results, highlights and daily reviews plus there's details of the format, prize money and past winners.

World Cup of Darts: Team line-ups

With nations represented by two-player teams, competitors are initially selected based on the PDC Order of Merit, where two or more players are ranked. If players do not wish to enter, then their fellow countrymen next on the Order of Merit will get called up - as is the case with John Henderson and Robert Thornton representing Scotland rather than Peter Wright and Gary Anderson.

With seedings based on the cumulative PDC ranking of the two players, England will be the top seeds going into this year's event.
