Prize money for the 2007 WINMAU WORLD MASTERS is being increased and there will be more live TV coverage than ever before on BBC-1 and BBC-2 over the weekend of November 17th and 18th.

Returning to Leisure World, Bridlington, East Yorkshire from Friday, November 16th to Sunday, November 18th, the World Masters is a true World Championship with players from 69 countries being invited, including darts champions from over 140 national and international events worldwide.

“The increase in prize money reflects our ongoing commitment to the World Masters, as does the increased live coverage from BBC TV”, says Ian Flack, Sales & Marketing Director of the Winmau Dartboard Company.

“Approximately 300 players from over thirty countries will be in Bridlington for this year’s World Masters and, after 33 consecutive years, we are proud that as the oldest established major in world darts (1974-2007) it remains truly worldwide in appeal and enjoys a huge slice of darts history.

“Indeed, Winmau is delighted that not only does the World Masters have so much history and kudos within the global sport of darts, but the Masters title is also coveted by darts players worldwide.”

The only major in world darts with four separate finals – Men, Women, Boys and Girls – the Winmau World Masters attracts thousands of darts players, officials and supporters from right around the globe to Bridlington.

With the multi-million pounds refurbishment of The Spa still not completed, the 2007 World Masters will once again be played at Leisure World, Bridlington. The dates are November 16th to 18th, with BBC Television coverage of the final stages of the Men’s World Masters live on BBC-1 on Saturday, November 17 and live on BBC-2 on Sunday, November 18.

Details of the 2007 prize fund and the full schedule for the 2007 Winmau World Masters will be announced later in the year.
