The game of darts was very famous in all over the world specially in United Kingdom. Peoples loved to play and also they are watching live all matches of darts.

As well as The Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) was formed in 1993.

It was a big story behind that how PDC was formed. There were several issues behind that firstly in 1980 or letter theirs was an issue about live coverage on television along with some other as well but BDO didn’t cop up all that issues. Another issue was raised up in 1992- 1993.

Richie Gardner, Chris Johns, Bob Anderson, Jocky Wilson, Keith Deller, Rod Harrington, John Lowe, Peter Evison, Cliff Lazarenko, Kevin Spiolek, Jamie Harvey, Alan Warriner and Dennis Priestley all were banned. Because they rejected the logo of the sponsor on their shirts. All 16 players complained and protest against all that things but BDO didn’t take any action against this issue and they banned all. Finally PDC was formed by all these players. The (PDC), formerly known as the World Darts Council (WDC), it was formed in 1992.
