The 2000 Skol World Darts Championship was held between 28 December 1999 – 4 January 2000 at the Circus Tavern in Purfleet, Essex. The tournament is staged earlier in the calendar year than most World Championships in sport, and thus Sky television commentators claimed that Phil Taylor was the "First World Champion of the new Millennium".

Taylor continued his dominance of this event, notching up his sixth successive world championship, his eighth overall. Dennis Priestley must have considered himself unlucky to be around during these years - he suffered his fourth final loss to Taylor in five years and failed to add to his two world championship successes.

Eric Bristow's first round defeat to American, Steve Brown would virtually signal the end of the legendary player's career at the top-level. Bristow, who would continue to attempt to qualify for the championship a few times after 2000 made his last appearance in the championship, which ended his run of having appeared in a World Championship for 23 consecutive years spanning back to the inaugural World Championship of 1978. John Lowe became the only player with an unbroken appearance record.
