A little more movement in the ‘transfer market’ as January begins. Winmau have made moves into two of the most populous and exciting markets that remain relatively untapped:
“ Winmau is pleased to announce the signing of Nitin Kumar & Mozhgan Rahmani.
Nitin, one of India’s premier players, has been a regular at the PDC World Championships, qualifying three out of the last 4 years. He also appeared in the PDC World Cup back in 2015.
Upon signing Nitin told Winmau, “I am really humbled to be joining a stellar brand in Winmau. I am now ready to take the next step in my darting career and achieve new levels for both Indian darts and myself.”
Mozghan, an Iranian star who chose darts over a career in engineering, has featured on the PDC Asian Tour previously & is set to compete in the PDC’s expanded Women’s Series in 2022.
“I am really excited to be a part of team Winmau and hope we can grow success together for a long future.” Mozghan said speaking to Winmau.
Both players are looking forward to darts in 2022, with their first step being Q-School, where they will compete for a PDC Tour Card.
Marketing Director for Winmau, Simon Hall added:
“we are extremely excited to bring Mozghan and Nitin onboard and can’t wait to start working with them. They are two very talented players who are right at the top in their respective nations, looking to make the next step to international glory!” “
A slightly left-field-looking pair of acquisitions here. Nitin seems to be leading f Indian darts and so may be a standard-bearer type of acquisition. Mozghan looks like a speculative future-proofing signing to me.
There again seems to be a quiet, piece-by-piece, look about how Winmau are going about building and maintaining their player roster. It will be interesting to see how these two signing fit into the overall picture.
