PDC World Darts Championship is the biggest annual global darts tournament.  Bet on it!Sport and History:

It is commonly called Dart throwing, as the players throw the darts at a specific target and calculate their scores depending on the accuracy of their throws. The first-ever world darts championship was held in 1994, two years after the formation of the Professional Darts Corporation. Professional Darts Corporation organizes a number of global darts competitions with the help, assistance, and support of the World Darts Federation (WDF). Professional Darts Corporation organizes the PDC World Darts Championship every year.

The competition's inaugural edition was organized by some leading players from the world of darts, who formed their separate governing body, PDC, after parting their ways with the World Darts Federation. In a way, the competition had started as a rebel tournament but soon took over the world of darts as the marquee event in the sport.


Since 2008, the championship has been held at the Alexandra Palace, London. Prior to that, the competition was held at the Circus Tavern in Purfleet Essex between 1994 and 2007.

One of the reasons behind the incredible success of the competition is that it is held in London, the hub of sports in England. As a result, all the top players and die-hard fans travel to the heart of England for the premier dart-throwing competition.
