World Darts Trophy
The Bavaria World Darts Trophy is a darts tournament held each September at De Vechtsebanen in Utrecht, Netherlands. The tournament has a playing format comparable with the two World Championships - BDO World Darts Championship and PDC World Darts Championship.
First held in 2002, the tournament is played under the World Darts Federation, British Darts Organisation and the NDB (Nederlandse Darts Bond - the Dutch governing body of darts) and has predominantly featured players from those organisations. However, for the first time PDC players were invited to the event in 2006. Phil Taylor, Colin Lloyd, Ronnie Baxter, Peter Manley and Raymond van Barneveld all joined the top ranked players from the BDO.
The tournament has been broadcast by SBS-6 in the Netherlands, but it has not been broadcast in the UK.
