A Knock Out Success for EFS Europe at the World Darts
Posted: Tue, 08 Feb 2022 14:46
Peter Wright became world champion for the second time in three years after overcoming Michael Smith 7-5 in the final. It was a fitting climax to a memorable tournament which saw defending champion Gerwyn Price crash out to Bully Boy despite hitting the tournament's record-breaking third nine-darter.
The 2022 PDC World Darts Championship was the 29th World Championship organised by the Professional Darts Corporation. It took place at London's Alexandra Palace from 15 December 2021 to 3 January 2022.
The competition is the biggest and best-known darts tournament in the world attracting a global TV audience over well over 10 million as well as thousands of darts-frenzied fans punishing EFS's event carpet over the Christmas and New Year period.
EFS's team working late into the night to have the legendary West Hall ready for play. On behalf of Alexandra Palace, 4 of EFS's crew laid the carpet in 8 hours, an installation that would ordinarily take approximately 3 hours given a straight open space. The crew adhered to a strict deadline, working around the intense timetable, cutting the carpet around the event infrastructure which included Arenas Seating's tiered seating.
EFS Europe supplied 12 rolls of 50m x 4m of the electric blue carpet, which was chosen to match the branding of the title sponsor William Hill. The carpet was installed throughout the main event arena, being fitted around the stage and grandstand areas. The carpet was also installed throughout the main walkways into the venue as well as being supplied for the main stage area where the nail-biting competition took place.
Speaking on behalf of EFS Europe, Jeremy Simpson, Managing Director said: "EFS Europe is always proud to be chosen to play a role in what has become a legendary fixture in the Christmas and New Year calendar. It was a fantastic conclusion to our 2021 business year and on behalf of the entire EFS Europe team, Bullseye! to Wright on his stunning performance."
