Gary Anderson 180 has pulled out of the Autumn Series in Niedernhausen and World Series of Darts Final in Salzburg.
The Flying Scotsman is not willing to travel while COVID cases are still on the rise.
Gary Anderson has revealed that he will not play in the upcoming Autumn Series with the World Series of Darts Finals.
The Flying Scotsman, who became the runner-up at this year’s World Matchplay, and made the Premier League top four on Saturday, cited travel issues as a reason to retire.
That means the BoyleSports World Grand Prix will be the next tournament that he will be involved in.
Anderson recently admitted to Online Dart in an interview he was nervous about traveling to countries on the British government quarantine list, due to a coronavirus pandemic. Now, he has decided not to play in those two events.
Gary Anderson speaks on a statement, said:
“We’ve been discussing the Autumn Series for a few weeks now and I’d be delighted to play in it if it was in the UK.But every time I turn on the news I see another country removed from the travel corridor and infections rising around Europe and the rest of the World.
“I’m just not comfortable with the travel involved right now. I need to fly and although I’m confident in my mask wearing and adhering to all the things I should do, I have little faith in other people- I’ve watched people outside from the safety of the Milton Keynes bubble and there seems little regard for safety and distancing, so imagine that multiplied on a plane! I don’t want to risk my health or the health of the family.
“I’m disappointed for my sponsors and fans that I won’t be there, but I’ve always said health and family are my priority.
“The PDC have made Niedernhausen a bubble and players will be tested, and Salzburg is a bubble – but I still need to fly to get to these places and even driving would mean transiting through non travel corridor countries and they are on a red list for a reason.
“I’ve been playing well at the Premier League but I’m afraid that flying is a risk I’m not willing to take.
I’ve now got the World Grand Prix in Coventry to look forward to next.”
