The event which pulls in the crowds and is restricted to the cream of the crop is the Premier League Darts.
This tournament is staged as a league type format and every week the players perform at a different venue, winning points for the games they win.
This event usually takes place around February – May each year (Covid permitting).
The British Darts Organisation (BDO) has it’s own World Championship which usually takes place just after the PDC Worlds in early January.
The BDO was the original darts organisation that produced those enthralling World Finals featuring the likes of Eric Bristow, Jocky Wilson and John Lowe at the Lakeside Country Club.
The PDC was formed in 1992 when the top players broke away from the BDO to form the all-new PDC with the live Sky Sports glitz with Barry Hearn as the PDC chairman.
