The William Hill World Darts Championship has been nominated for a fourth consecutive year in the Sports Business Awards.
The prestigious Sports Business Awards celebrate the achievements and hard work of individuals, teams and organisations in the delivery of sporting events and projects, and features a panel of judges from a wide range of sporting backgrounds.
The PDC’s World Darts Championship has been shortlisted as a finalist in two of the 2020 Sports Business Awards categories: ‘Best Sports Event of the Year’ and ‘Best Operations Team’.
At the 2019 awards, the World Darts Championship was named as the Best Match (or Game) Day Experience, having previously won the Best Operations Team at the 2018 ceremony.
“The William Hill World Darts Championship continues to grow in stature as a major sporting event, and these award nominations are testament to that,” said PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter.
“The 2019/20 event was a memorable one for so many reasons, and we’re proud to have delivered a magnificent spectacle for the tens of thousands of fans who attended and the millions watching on TV across the globe.
“Alexandra Palace is now firmly established as the place to be over the festive sporting season, and I am also pleased to see the hard work of our magnificent team recognised.”
The awards will be presented at a ceremony in London on Wednesday, December 16. For further information, please visit www.sportsbusinessawards.co.uk.
