Darts players and fans from throughout the world will be heading to the iconic Blackpool Tower early next year for a major new darts tournament.

More than 1,000 players will join top professionals in the BDO World Trophy to battle it out for the title and a guaranteed £115,000 prize pot, one of the largest in the game of darts. The tournament will be seen by up to 14,000 fans.

The first BDO event of its kind, to take place in the stylish Tower Ballroom from 4-9 February, is open to all and organisers are now taking applications from players eager to compete alongside the game’s greats including Scott Waites, Stephen Bunting, Jan Dekker and Richie George.

The tournament has been organised by The British Darts Organisation (BDO) and its new commercial arm BDO Events in a bid to develop the game by enhancing the player and fan experience.

The World Trophy is the first in a year-long programme of events culminating in the Super Series in July.

Scott Waites, the reigning BDO World Darts Champion, said: "A new event on the world stage is just what we need. For me it’s as much about playing darts with my mates on a Monday night and having a laugh, as the razzmatazz of the big tournaments.

"But I’m walking taller since winning the BDO World’s and very proud of that title. I’ve really turned it up a notch this year. It’s time for a new era of darts and this major new tournament will spice things up at the top in a really unique venue.”

Top players from throughout the world are already competing in play offs to determine who will represent their country in the World Trophy.

Scott Newhouse, BDO Events managing director, added: " We are so excited about the World Trophy. The launch of this new competition and the sizeable prize fund is the right direction for the BDO, which will see men and women competing for this new title in the first of what is going to be an exciting year of new tournaments in the darts world. 2014 will be a true festival of darts.”

Tickets range from £5 to £35 for spectators and £20 for men and £15 for ladies to take part. For further information and to register visit or telephone 01709 555343.
