Here we go: the WDF announcement: https://www.dartswdf.com/2020/01/17/wdf ... -for-2020/
  • a ‘World Masters’ style multi-board event
  • an end of season finale in the traditional format of a staged ‘World Championship’ type event

Fairly clear what they're up to here. The BDO will be rattled as fuck.

And so they should be. Only tournaments they should have any interest in whatsoever is the BICC/Gold Cup and even then the EDO/SDO etc. might override them.

The WDF should have done this years back.

Splitting, I'm afraid. We'll still need this thread as it is to laugh at the comedy fireball that was the BDO.

let's have a look.

I think you've done it!

Change it to 'future of the amateur game' tho, seeing as the BDO doesn't have one.

Despite dumping the BDO points, the Dutch Open has had 16 more men enter it this year.

99%+ of players on the continent haven't given a shit about BDO points for a long, long time. Ironically it was mostly tournament organizers who still bought into the propaganda, the guys staging the German Open were still insisting as little as three years ago that the BDO ranking status was increasing the attractiveness of their tournament weekend. (But even they finally stopped talking about that since then.)

On the actual topic, I'm still of the mind that a Lakeside-style championship is completely surplus to requirements for the WDF. They should just focus on doing the World Masters well and give world championship status to that. But that would require some out of the box thinking rather than just trying to continue the status quo under different ownership...

I'm also relatively skeptical that they'll actually be able to pull off the staging of these major events in 2020 already without making a hash of it.
