FormatEdit

24 countries in the PDC Order of Merit at the end of 4 January after the 2012 PDC World Darts Championship were represented at the PDC World Cup of Darts, with 19 from the 2010 edition to return, and the five others replaced by the Philippines, Malaysia, South Africa, Croatia and Hungary. Each nation's top ranked player was joined by the second highest player of that country. For seeding the average rankings of the players was used, with the top 8 nations automatically starting in round 2 and the other 16 nations starting in round 1.[2]

The round 1 matches were shortened from best of 11 to best of 9 legs in doubles compared to 2010.[3] The winners of round 1 played one of the top eight ranked teams in round 2, and it used the same format as the group stage in 2010, except that the sets were increased from best of 5 to best of 7 legs for singles[4] and best of 9 legs for doubles matches.[5] Two singles matches and a doubles match, with 1 point awarded for a singles win and 2 points awarded for a doubles win. If the match score was 2-2 at the end of the match, then a sudden-death doubles leg decided who got through. The fixtures remained the same, the top ranked player in the country faced the second highest ranked player in the country. Another change have seen the winners of round 2 qualify for the quarter-finals, which replaced the group stage. The quarter-finals used the same format as round 2, except that the doubles matches were best of 7 legs.[6] The semi-finals and final used the same format used in 2010, except that the sets were reduced from best of 11 to best of 7 and from best of 15 to best of 13 respectively.[7]
