Not long now and The BDO World Championships will be up and running. Here is the Men's Draw!

The 2017 Lakeside World Pro kicks off on Saturday 7 January 2017 with what looks like a really strong field. The draw is below and there was plenty of drama just getting the matches organised let alone what the 9 days at the Home of World Darts will bring. Contrary to some reports it was actually the 5 being mistaken for a 3 (or was it the other way round) that caused the confusion and re-draw.

Anyway it was all,sorted and we have some cracking matches to look forwatd to!
