End of an Era – No Lakeside Darts on BBC

Confirmed this week that the Lakeside Darts will not be shown on BBC next year… please see link below.

So, instead of 9 days of BDO darts action from the Lakeside, we get 2 days of PDC darts action in a brand new tournament.  Some will say having a PDC tournament on the BBC is good news, and of course it is, but as I write, there is no broadcaster for next year’s BDO World Darts Championship.

Will BT Sport pick up full rights for the afternoon and evening sessions?  All hypothetical, but I think they will, with perhaps some of the sessions screened on BT Showcase to keep some of the tournament free?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
