UKTV has partnered with Hall of Fame boxing promoter Frank Warren to deliver live coverage of the British Darts Organisation (BDO) World Trophy.
The three-day event will take place at the Lakeside Country Club from 28-30 May.
For each day, UKTV channel Dave will broadcast ten hours of live coverage.
Warren said, “Though I have worked predominantly in boxing for nearly 40 years, I have also promoted and been involved in various other sports and entertainment ventures throughout my career.
“I am delighted to have been part of setting this event up and securing the BDO, one of the UK’s leading broadcasters for the event.”
The move comes as part of Dave’s ongoing plans to move into sports broadcasting, after providing live coverage of David Haye’s comeback fight in January.
Steve North, Dave general manager, said, “We are constantly looking for new opportunities and show ideas for Dave to keep our audiences entertained.
“After the incredible experience we had with the David Haye fight at the start of the year, we are delighted to be delving further into the sporting world by partnering with the BDO in what is a fantastic opportunity to offer fans extended live coverage of the BDO World Trophy.”
