The WDF has announced the prize pool for the WDF World Championship. It also revealed more about how to follow the tournament at Lakeside.

The total prize pool for the WDF World Championship includes 257,000 pounds, down from 300,000 pounds in 2022. The men's winner will haul in a £50,000 check, while the runner-up will go home with £20,000.

The winner of the women's tournament will receive 25,000 pounds in prize money, while the losing finalist will receive 10,000 pounds. There is £5,000 waiting for the winner of the boys' tournament, while the winner in the girls' will receive £2,000.

In addition, it became clear that the WDF failed to secure a major broadcast partner for Lakeside.
