And for those suggesting Freesports will show it, this event falls on a normal football weekend, and this weekend Freesports are showing...

- Live rugby
- Live rugby league
- Live drone racing (yes, seriously)
- Live Portuguese Primeira Liga football
- Live speedway

Assuming a similar packed schedule in 2 weeks time, there is no way in this world or the next they are dropping all that to show hours of darts from an empty room.

Amazing that drone racing can get their product on TV so easily, oh that and arm wrestling.

This was bought by their pay TV parent Premier Sports. They let Freesports show some of it.

The Polish speedway is top league in Europe and all the global stars ride in it.

Back to Freesports I posted a few weeks ago their Pro 14 rugby broadcast commitments and as noted no space for darts.

Drone racing managed to do something the BDO havent managed in about 10 year, decent publicity on TV and the internet. Went from nothing to Sky and Premier Sports picking up the rights to tournaments straight afterwards.

I really dont know what they are going to do about this, only thing left is stream it on youtube and try spinning it that worldwide streaming is a good thing.

Nobody seemingly able to answer the question on Fanatics about who is showing it. In fact one member is deeming it trolling that the question is even being asked :D
