The Winmau BDO World Trophy is the new major darts tournament run by the British Darts Organisation, hosted originally in February at Event City in Manchester; since 2016 the tournament was held in May in various locations. The event 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.
