The Remote Darts League (RDL) has signed up geolocation compliance technology company GeoComply as its title sponsor.
The deal is agreed for the second edition of the competition, which will see 16 players take part in the remotely-conducted event. The first RDL tournament took place between April 18 and April 27 of 2020.
Kevin Dale, of independent content provider and host organisation Faraway Sports, said: “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.”
The tournament began on May 18, with the playing line-up consisting of four top-ranked female players, 8 males and the four finalists from the first edition of RDL.
Chief executive of GeoComply, David Briggs, said: “With league approval from regulators in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the 120+ matches will be traded across a range of US sportsbooks.”
