Will Wayne have any impact other than a minimal one on the sales?
Nope. There is no interest in this event and hence no demand.

You can't force people to attend this farce.

The general public not only don't know about this event, they wouldn't be interested if they did.

"People saying
I haven’t purchased tickets because I’m worried it won’t go ahead

Or

Is my money safe if I purchase tickets"



I dont believe for a minute that people are not booking because they think they wont get their money back if its cancelled. Its the o2 ffs, not Lyle Lanley running an event in a village hall somewhere.

Is there a chance the track may bend?

PDC/WDC gave lots of tickets away to events, nothing new
Really, when was this? I used to rock up at the Circus Tavern in the early days of the WDC. It was still £3 a session, bargain even in the mid 90s.

If there were free tickets going I would have got some.
They gave away tickets for an early TV pairs event at the Willows in Salford I think.. There were hardly any any paying customers... Also the first Premier League finals night at GMex in Manchester.. That wasn't selling too well and GMex was a huge venue for darts back then after all the weeks beforehand were in halls..
The thing is the PDC were building.. The BDO are crumbling.. PDC had a vision and a plan and sponsors... BDO have none of these

Not on sales but plenty arses on seats with freebies, it obvious that it needs to look good on tv.

OK, why does it need a third party to give tickets away? I'm puzzled.

This is the grand plan then....

Forget buying some actual proper advertising Des, just get a bloke who has 75k less people following it than your own to do a sub-page :roll: :roll:

109 shares, not even halfway to that comp giveaway.

Utterly ridiculous. If this is the grand plan then they are shafted. I saw a Facebook ad the other day for the PL, and this is an event that well sell tens of thousands of tickets anyway, where is the same for the o2 sideroom?

The PL won't sell out completely so proof that the PDC is rubbish, or something. See also: crowds on the first day of Euro Tour events/Minehead.

They are obviously flat broke and have no money to spend on advertising the event on a national level, why else would this scheme be concocted.

They are certainly not muppets and must truly believe the BDO is marketable”
