After winning the 2020 BDO World Championships in emphatic style, Wayne Warren enters his next exciting chapter signing an extension to his exclusive sponsorship deal with Red Dragon Darts.
The iconic win for the 57-year-old Rhondda roofer wasn’t all plain sailing, as he became the lowest paid World Champion since Jockey Wilson won the prestigious title in 1989 defeating Eric Bristow.
However, to Wayne’s huge credit he battled through swathes of negativity surrounding the event to emerge an extremely proud World Champion.
Wayne said “To win the World title at the age of 57 is without doubt a dream come true, I’ve always wanted to become World Champion throughout my career and I’ve worked so hard to do this.”
“I’ve had some time off from the game with a new family and various things, but since playing a fulltime schedule and being able to focus fully on my darts it has allowed my confidence to grow”.
Wayne has continued to smash the WDF rankings with wins in the Slovakia Masters and Romanian Classic already in 2020 and it’s this form that sees him grow his sponsorship with Red Dragon Darts.
Simon Hall, Head of Marketing at Red Dragon, said “It’s long been known our views of Wayne, that “If God could throw darts, he’d throw like Wayne Warren”Simon Hall
“It’s been a pleasure to work with Wayne and he’s carried his name and the Red Dragon brand to such a high standard it’s a privilege to continue our partnership”
Wayne extends his contract for a further three years as he continues to look to add further Major titles to his collection.
Wayne spoke about his plans for the future and whether he intended to switch over to the PDC. Wayne said “This year I’m focusing on nailing that WDF Number 1 ranking spot, as we’re not all sure what the forecast looks like for major tournaments this year”
“I’ve obviously got a lot of exhibitions to look forward to since the big win and I’m really excited with what darts lie ahead for me in the next 10 months and a really busy year”
We wish Wayne all the best on the circuit this year and it’s a massive pleasure to have him extend his stay on board.
