The BDO World Darts Championship, which is run by the British Darts Organisation, is the older and more traditional championship. The PDC Championship, which is run by the Professional Darts Corporation, is younger and more dynamic.
Dennis Priestley, also the first three-time world champion, won the inaugural draw. Phil Taylor holds the record for the most wins. He has won the tournament 14 times.
