Dissatisfaction with the policy of the mighty British Darts Organisation decided early nineties a number topdarters, including Eric Bristow and Phil Taylor, to create an alternative darts league. Initially got this new association name WDC, later changed to the PDC. Since 1994, this association organizes its own World Cup, which will be broadcast live on SkySports among others. Because it is extraordinarily many top players at this World Cup participation, where this tournament in the British darts world prestige. Many British darts fans felt the PDC World Championship as the only true World Championship Darts. Yet this World Cup was a publicity especially for the many Dutch initially still stand in the shadow of the older Championships, organized by BDO and that Yahoo was broadcast by the BBC. BDO World Championship was a tournament where Raymond van Barneveld in the late nineties and early 21st century, much furore. In 2006 Van Barneveld took over, however, from the BDO to the PDC. Since then he has so annually participate in the World Championships in PDC. Later, many other Dutch state over to the PDC. All this has meant that in the Netherlands the PDC World Championship today as the most prestigious World Championship Darts visible and therefore out of the BDO World Championship.
In the finale of the first PDC World Championship Darts 1994 Dennis Priestly won 6-1 by Phil Taylor. During the next eight editions, the final was, however, every year we won by Phil Taylor. Only in 2003 succeeded yet darter manage to win this tournament, the Canadian John Part defeated then Phil Taylor in the final. Taylor then won again in 2004, 2005 and 2006. In 2007 was the first Dutchman Raymond van Barneveld who managed to win the PDC World Championship Darts. He defeated Phil Taylor in the final with 7-6. In 2008 won the Canadian John Part his second PDC World Championship title. He then defeated in the finals Kirk Shaphard. Remarkably, this was only the first time since the World Cup was that Phil Taylor had not reached the final. In 2009 and 2010, this World Cup, but was again “only” won by Phil Taylor. In addition, in 2009 he defeated Raymond van Barneveld in the final with 7-1. In 2011 and 2012 Adrian Lewis won the PDC World Championship.
