Barry Hearn, Chairman of the PDC, has hinted that the World Championship finals may move to a new home. He also told BBC London there are moves for a new competition between players from the two rival codes.

Barry Hearn

Barry Hearn, the outspoken Chairman of the Professional Darts Corporation and Leyton Orient FC, spoke at length to BBC London's David Croft about his plans for the future of darts.

Barry hinted that the World Championship finals may have to move from it's current home at the Circus Tavern in Purfleet due to the growing popularity of the sport.

London's Alexandra Palace or the Brighton Centre may host the final - they are being used for the first time this season as venues for the Premier League.


Barry also took another swipe at the rival British Darts Corporation, saying he wishes "they would pack up and sell to me - I could change the face of grass roots darts".
