Re: The BDO World Professional Darts Championships 4-12 Jan 2020 Indigo at the O2

couple of interesting points: he did say they considered a venue outside of the uk! And also after the ref team resigned one of the sponsors pulled out (citing the resignations as the reason) but Des talked then back on board. Wonder who that was? And one of the refs to be named, will be a massive ...

They seem to be good at spending the BDO's money but particularly band at getting any sponsorship deals. Is the running total currently at net Zero?

Re: The BDO Annual General Meeting

Massive massive gamble.
The event is going to cost £200k plus to put on including hire, tv production and the stage set. That's a lot of tickets. And this will be in the back of two events coming up that will lose money.
And there is no sponsor!

Re: The BDO Annual General Meeting

Amazing once again how excited people are about bdo booking a venue and how amazing they are for achieving it, as if it really is a genuine achievement. It really is quite odd.

Think des is doing a fine job. Safeguarding some tv tournaments and getting a huge venue for the wc. Away from the stoneage old dusty lakeside.

Why so negative? He has a top venue. That will make it easy to get a sponsor assuming he hasnt already got them onboard. Maybe the venue will have agreed to sponsor it just to get the World Championships there. Oh please. No, the venue wont sponsor it and if it was easy.. where is the sponsor annou...

Re: RIP Lakeside

Well done Des and Sportotal...
...
For picking up the phone and booking a venue...

Now find a sponsor and some ticket paying punters or you have just bankrupt the BDO.
The BDO do not have the cash to fund this event. God knows what this will do to the BDO.
