Players yet to receive prize money from 2020 BDO World Championship as 28-day deadline passes

Further controversy has shrouded the BDO as the 28-day deadline has now passed for players receiving prize money from the 2020 World Championship with players yet to receive it.

Before the tournament began at the Indigo, the prize fund was dramatically reduced with £23,000 for the men's winner and £10,000 for the Ladies winner.

This made players such as Andy Hamilton question if they'd receive their prize money at all; with him saying that he's 'leaning on the side it won't' in an interview with Metro.co.uk after he'd claimed back his Tour Card at Q-School.

The 28-day period expired on Sunday with it being dictated in the players contracts before the tournament the following:

‘Any prize money awarded to you at the World Professionals will be paid out by way of a BACS payment to your designated bank account within 28 days of the conclusion of the World Professional Championships.’

Ryan Hogarth was one of the players who reacted to it; with 'The Headhunter' tweeting about it on Monday saying he hadn't received anything yet and that he is planning potential legal action saying 'enough is enough'.

Former World Master Adam Smith-Neale replied to his tweet; by saying he'd run the BDO office and they said chairman Des Jacklin was behind the hold up.

This all came despite the BDO releasing a statement last week saying the tour was 'set to continue' and that they had further meetings planned today to further the BDO; as well as to put their ideas into action.
