BDO World Darts Championship History 


The BDO World Darts Championship began in 1978 and was one of two world championship tournaments alongside the World Darts Federation's World Cup of Darts until 1993. Since 1994 a breakaway group now known as the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) stages its own annual PDC World Championship in late December before the BDO World Darts Championship and early January each year.

The 1978 BDO World Darts Championship was held at the Heart of the Midlands Nightclub in Nottingham, England. In 1979 it moved to the Jollees Cabaret Club, Stoke, where it stayed until 1985. 

From 1986 to 2019 the BDO World Darts Championship was held at the Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green, Surrey. The 2020 BDO World Darts Championship was the first to be held at Indigo, part of the O2 entertainment district in London.
