The BDO World Trophy is a major darts tournament run by the British Darts Organisation, hosted originally in February 2014 at Blackpool Tower, before it was held in May from 2016–18 in various locations. In 2019, it will be held in King George's Hall in Blackburn with a three-year contract for the event to be televised by Eurosport. The tournament is organized by BDO Events, the commercial arm of the British Darts Organisation.[1]

History[edit]

The first World Trophy was held in February 2014 at the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool. The Event marked the first BDO major event since the split in darts to not feature the BDO World Champion as Stephen Bunting joined the Professional Darts Corporation once he won the Lakeside Championship in 2014.
