PDC & BDO World Darts Championship 2019:

PDC World Darts Championships: 13th December - 1st January 2019 Sky Sports

The William Hill PDC World Darts Championships followed by the BDO Lakeside World Darts Champions. Dart fans are in for a four-week darts frenzy as the World’s best dart players take to the stage to fulfil their dreams of becoming a World Darts Champion.

The William Hill PDC World Darts Championships kicks off proceeding at the Ally Pally on the 13th December 2018 and concludes on New Year’s Day 1st January 2019. Nine-six players of the World’s best will compete for a share of £2,500,000 prize fund, the biggest in darts history. With the Winner receiving £500,000. This year the event will also see two ladies playing in the event, Anastasia Drobromyslova and the current BDO World Darts Champions, Lisa Ashton. Both ladies qualified via a knockout qualification.

Rob Cross was the surprise winner of the 2018 PDC World title and he will be under pressure to defend his title. During 2018 the major darts events have not been dominated by a single player as we have seen in previous years. Rob hasn’t been able to emulate is 2018 World title success at any of the majors. Although he has won a non-ranking World Series event and off camera players event.

Recently crowned Player Championship winner Daryl Gurney and James Wade who won back to back European Championships and World Series of Darts titles put themselves back in the mix as a title contenders. Michael van Gerwen the PDC order of merit No.e and Gary Anderson also look good to claim their third World titles.  Peter Wright has also been in the mix, however, major titles he is lacking. In 2018 Peter won the non-ranking Melbourne Darts Masters but other than that he has had an unsuccessful title year.

 

BDO World Darts Championships: 5th - 13th January 2019 Eurosport | Quest TV

The Lakeside BDO World Darts Championships follows early in the New Year. This again will come from the famous Lakeside Country Club, 5th - 13th January 2019.

Defending Champions Glen Durrant and Lisa Ashton will again look to add to their World title tally. Glen and Lisa will both be looking to make it a hattrick of consecutive titles.  If Lisa wins the 2019 World title it will take her total of World titles to five.  She could although unlikely win both the PDC World Championship and the BDO World Championship in the same year!

Mark McGeeney will be hoping to go one step further as he was narrowly defeated by Glen in the 2018 BDO Lakeside World Championship. The ‘Gladiator’ won the Dutch Open for a second consecutive year and add a triple crown of wins in Turkey. On the Ladies side, Trina Gulliver MBE will again toe the oche for a nineteenth consecutive year. Trina has won the World title ten times and been the runner-up twice and is still a force to be contended with. She last won the World Title in 2016 defeating the finals favourite Deta Hedman who seemed not to be able to cope with the pressure of the World Final.

The William Hill PDC World Darts Championships will be broadcast via 'Sky Sports' in the UK and various TV broadcasters around the world. While the BDO Lakeside World Darts Champions will be broadcast via Eurosport and Quest.

More information about both of these major dart events can be seen below.

PDC & BDO World Darts Championships 2019 Event Details

PDC Darts William Hill World Darts Championship 2019 - Alexandra Palace, London

PDC William Hill World Darts Championships 2019

The World Dart Stage is set for another 15 days of World Championship Dart, live from the Alexandra Palace, London.

Ninety-six players will compete for the Sid Waddell trophy and the first prize of £500,000 with a total prize fund of £2.5M making this event the richest darts event in the world.

At the time of writing a few tickets are still available, however, these tend to sell out fast so if you want to join the party I suggest you buy your tickets now or be disappointed.

Veteran Paul Lim has again qualified for the TV stages of the World Championship and at a tender age of 64, he by far the oldest tungsten slinger in this event. Paul came to fame by hitting a nine-dart leg in the BDO World Darts Championships back in 1990. It is something the BDO players have still to emulate in this event but not so in the PDC where nine-dart legs have become expected by many fans will tell you!

Paul nearly landed a nine-dart leg at the 2018 PDC World Championships and he is sure to have fantastic fan support when he steps to the oche once again.

Seeded players this year enter the competition in the second round of the competition

PDC 2019 Darts Fans! Waynes World!

Waynes World - Wayne Mardel

 

One of the biggest spectacles at the PDC William Hill World Darts beside the darts is the fans. Over the last twenty plus years the PDC has grown the sport of darts into one of the best loved events to feature on TV. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a party or two that is why most dart fans make their way to the World Darts Championships to enjoy the atmosphere and watch outstanding darts from the best dart players in the world. Oh and of course and party!!!

The PDC William Hill World Darts Championship has become event that all dart fans wish to be part of and tickets sell out fast. However, if you not lucky enough to get a ticket the no worries the entire 15 days coverage is shown on Sky Sports.

Fancy Dress is one answer! Many fans dress up for the occasion, the wackier the better, as you are more likely to be shown on TV and possibly win one of Wayne Mardle’s prizes!! Ooooh! Send us a ‘T’ Shirt Wayne! or at least give us a mention!

 

Dart Fans Fancy Dress

 

Ok fancy dress not your thing! Then write a witty sign. Dart Tournament and sponsors usually provide 180 boards and blanks for you to write your message. A good message will be shown on TV and again Wayne might reward you with a prize!

 

Fans Dart Sign

 

To many of us, Sid Waddell, was one of the most charismatic commentators of our sport. His off the cuff linguist commentary earnt him admiration from both fans, players and other sports commentators. If you would like to reminisce over some of his best one lines that came from this genius then you can. I have put together a list of my favourite Sid Waddell quotations spanning across the years. Who knows these one-liners may give you some inspiration for your next dart sign!

Sid Waddell quotations

I couldn't agree more! #LOVEDARTS01

PDC World Darts Championships Fans Chant

For those of you that are asking what was the song being sung at the 2018 PDC World Darts Championships by the thousands of dart fans, it is a chant: ‘Please Don’t Take Me Home”

The lyrics!

‘Don't take me home! Please don't take me home! I don't wanna go to work! I wanna stay here, and drink all the beer, Please don't, please don't take me home!...‘

BDO Lakeside World Championship Tournament Prize Fund

The tournament prize fund remains unchanged from last year.

The 2019 Lakeside World Professional Darts Champion Men’s winner receives £100,000

The 2019 Lakeside World Professional Darts Champion Ladies winner receives £12,000

The men’s prise winning cheque has remained unchanged since 2010 and the Ladies has remained unchanged since 2006

I am unsure if there still is a 9-dart leg bonus for this event. Previous years this has been £52,000. However, the last time this was achieved by a player in the BDO World Darts Championships was in second round of the 1990 Championships by Paul Lim.

BDO Lakeside World Professional Darts Championship 2019

2019 BDO Lakeside World Darts Championship Qualifiers

Glen Durrant and Lisa Ashton will both be looking for a hattrick of titles when they step up to the oche at the Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships in January. Glen has won the title for the past two years running, a win in 2019 would give him his third title in total.

Mark Geeney, who was narrowly defeated in the 2018 World Champions last year after having darts at the double to win the title will be hoping to go one stage further this year. The ‘Gladiator’ has recently signed to a new management team and to Unicorn darts but failed to impress at the Grand Slam of Darts in November. However, 2018 hasn’t been all bad with a back-to-back Dutch Open titles and a triple event winner in Turkey, Mark does have what it takes to win the big title.

Lisa, who has been dominant in the lady’s event in recent years is playing for her fifth title. She has won the event in 2014,2015,2017 and 2018. In 2016 Trina Gulliver MBE clinched her tenth title beating Deta Hedman who has made the final three times in total.

Trina Gulliver MBE returns for the 18th year in succession and is the only lady’s player ever to play in all the World Championships finals to date. Could she make it title no. 11?

It is a big year for Lisa as she has also qualified for the PDC World Darts Championship alongside Anastasia Dobromyslova.

Darts01.com

Many viewers will know I have written several very successful dart websites over the past fifteen years, each with their own spin on the sport. I have also written a few professional players websites that you may also have come across. My love of the game has never diminished and with over forty years of playing the game, I would like to share as much about darts the game, the sport, the history and the development of the game.

The website is new and fresh and I have learned on my experience as player, developer and designer to hopefully bring you a little more to the sport millions love and play every week.

This website contains information regarding the ‘01 game played by all plus the many UK regional dartboard differences of both past and present. Players nicknames, music, dart checkout charts and basic tournament charts are available for you to download and print for your personal use. There will be something on this website for everyone, even if it a quick look at the facts and myths that surround the sport.

As a player, I would rate myself as a good pub league player. I never ventured into major competition except for the first year of PDC UK Open, I won locally but was unable to attend regional knockouts. Today I tend to watch as a keen supporter of the sport and love to see people enjoying the sport, even if it is only over a friendly pint or two.

My thanks go to the major dart organisations, dart manufacturers, suppliers, the darts historian Dr Patrick Chaplin, darts legend Trina Gulliver MBE, Mark McGeeney and the many others that have helped me over the years to develop this website and many other dart websites. More details can be found on my acknowledgement page. See footer.

About Us


As the name may suggest Darts 01 is about the main darts game 01. 501, is the standard game played today, however, this hasn’t always been the case. 301 double start double finish was the game of choice played in UK pubs for many years. Today, however, in most major darts matches with exception of one, a player is only required to finish on a double not start on one.
