Winmau revealed as sponsor for Lakeside in three-year agreement
The World Darts Federation (WDF) and Winmau have agreed a three-year sponsorship deal, the latter have announced.
This means that Winmau's Blade 6 dartboards will be used in all major WDF tournaments including the Lakeside World Championship.
This agreement was also in place previously for the BDO World Championship and is now set for the new iteration of the tournament.
"We have over a 40-year History in the direct sponsorship of global grass roots darts, so when the WDF approached us with their ambitious WDF Major plans, we saw this as a really exciting opportunity for us to help continue growing the game at every level across the World, with The Lakeside being so well known for launching many Major Darts Careers," said Simon Hall, Director of Marketing for Winmau.
"The WDF has worked with Winmau over global WDF tournaments for decades and we know how hard they work to give the players the best darts experience that they can, no matter what level they play at," said WDF President, Bill Hatter.
"Signing a three-year contract that continues this relationship and will see Winmau boards exclusively used at all our major events, including the forthcoming Lakeside World Championships is fantastic news and we could not have better partners."
