This will be the 34th consecutive year Lakeside has hosted the Championships, becoming the primary sponsors in 2004, and players from across the globe will be looking to emulate the successes of 2018 Champions Glen Durrant and Lisa Ashton in January on the famous Lakeside stage. Once again the the tournament will be played on the class-leading Winmau Blade 5 dartboards.
BDO Chairman / CEO Des Jacklin said ‘We are delighted that the Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships are heading back to Frimley Green.
After the announcement this morning regarding the broadcaster, we didn’t want this to detract from the exciting news that Lakeside Country Club had committed to hosting the Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships once again and felt a separate statement was necessary.
Both the players and the fans of the sport all look forward to the event and Lakeside has provided the perfect setting for over 30 years.’
The Championships will be the first of nine events to be screened by the BDO’s new primary broadcaster, Eurosport, with additional live coverage and highlights to be shown on terrestrial channel, Quest.
