Darts World have learned the BDO is on the brink of collapse and an announcement may be imminent.
After almost half a century, of being the governing body of darts in the UK, it seems that the combination of financial constraints and a lack of support from its members has proven insurmountable.
Multiple sources have informed Darts World that “its over and the BDO will be folded”
If true the news will lead to a scramble for what remains of the structure and assets of the once dominant organisation. The County associations are certain to maje a claim for any monies owed and possibly further physical assets.
It remains to be seen how the new organisations including the UKDA and MAD Darts will respond. It may be that the responsibility to operate a sustainable amateur darts structure now falls to them.
The WDF may also need to decide upon a body to represent the UK within their system.
This story is ongoing and will be updated as more detail emerges…..
