How are the ticket sales going?


Up to about 50% sold at the end of Wednesday, so ticking over!

So it took 2 days to sell a third, and then another 8 days to sell a sixth.

Kell surpree!

It stands a chance of selling more than last year (just over 70%), which would surprise me to be honest. Bob Potter still able to make a tidy profit anyway!

Most events sell the bulk at the start, the PDC dont sell 14k tickets for the Worlds every hour after the first one :D

Has the prize fund/split been announced for the Men and Ladies yet? If yes, can someone copy it here please, and has it changed from last year?

I see the BDO have told the DFA that they are not funding the air fares for Justin Thompson and Mal Cumming fr Lakeside...and they are not to happy....the DFA are funding it for them but I cannot see any Aussie representation again after this year's Lakeside....gradually becoming a UK and Dutch event again soon..

DARTS AUSTRALIA BDO LAKESIDE WORLD PROFESSIONAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Darts Australia was made aware on November 3 2018 via its two qualifiers Justin Thompson and Mal Cuming that the British Darts Organisation would not be funding Airfares and Accommodation for the 2019 BDO World Professional Championship held at the Lakeside Hotel Complex, Frimley Green, UK.

Both players received notification on November 2 2018.

Darts Australia received no prior notice or advice from the BDO that this funding was to be withdrawn prior to the players notifying Darts Australia.

Darts Australia is extremely disappointed that this decision has been made by the BDO following the conclusion of the Grand Prix year.

We have of course made representation to the BDO Board expressing our disappointment and concerns but to no avail.

The Directors of Darts Australia have however pledged support for both players and D.A will fund the airfare and assist with accommodation costs to allow Justin and Mal to take their rightful place at the BDO World Pro.

I’m sure you will join us in wishing Justin and Mal a safe journey to the UK and wish Justin, Mal and Corrine Hammond the best of fortunes on the Lakeside stage.

Dfa getting some stick on fanatics. Folks from UK don't get their travel paid. If they unhappy them you put on the wc! Etc.

Fine. But some players only qualify because they live in northern Europe. Let another country run it, like Australia, but then weigh the system in favour of that part of the world. Wonder how many top players in the bdo would then make it.

If the bdo are so skint (as Paul implies on fanatics) why have they agreed to run the loss making masters and wdt for another 3yrs?

Announcement that the 2 Aussie organisations are joining together in 5 4 3 ......


Also I love that Ian slates Sharon Butler for bringing up a point about the pdc and then uses that exact same point against someone 5 minute later

I presume this applies to all non-European qualifiers and not just Australians?

I take it then that players are not obliged to stay at Lakeside and can simply just turn up at lakeside for whatever sessions they are due to play in?

Why is Hammond only mentioned towards the end of that message? Were her flights never paid for before?

As for no players getting a free room, then its just a sign that Potter is putting less into it. He wont have a full hotel as if they arent getting it for free many will just stay elsewhere.

Off to the Indigo o2 for the 2020 event then.....

I was thinking that.
I'm sure I remember Paul mentioning about her last year round That the only way she could fund the trip was through some generous sponsorship and staying over here for a month taking in Egmond etc and some other events she had in the planning.
