BDO Chairman Des Jacklin has just announced bad news for the BDO World Championship 2020 players. The price money will be cut in half because they are not able to pay out the full amount.
This means the winner no longer receives 100.000 pounds but only 50.000 pounds and the raised price money for the ladies title is no longer 20.000 pounds but now 10.000 pounds.
One of the reasons is they only managed to sell 15 procent of all available tickets. Full press release below.
Update: BDO just confirmed the BDO ladies winner will only get 8.000 pounds instead of 20.000 pounds.
