Former World Champion Andy “The Viking” Fordham has extended his long-standing sponsorship and equipment deal with the world’s leading darts brand Winmau.

The Viking – A Big Character

The three-year renewal will see the darts icon continue to play with Winmau darts equipment and wear the company’s logo on his playing shirt.

Fordham signed with Winmau in 2005 and has spent the past 9 years working closely with Winmau to fine-tune his darts and assist the company’s Research and Development department.

The 51 year-old Englishman, who is still undoubtedly one of darts most popular ever players, won the World Championship in 2004, said: ” I’ve had a tough time over the last few years with my health and trying to battle to get back to my best form, but Winmau has supported me every step of the way.

“Their faith and encouragement is the reason why I have my hunger back and I’m really enjoying playing on the BDO tour. It was the easiest decision of my life to re-sign with them and I’m honoured to represent this quality brand.”

Ian Flack, Sales and Marketing Director of Winmau, added: “Andy and Winmau share a unique long-term relationship that we are delighted to continue and he has become a great friend to Winmau and myself over the years.

“He has the determination to succeed on the oche and is once again showing glimpses of that darting magic that allowed him to win the ultimate prize in the sport. He perfectly represents our company, and we look forward to supporting him again over the next 3 years.”
