World Darts Championship Defending Champions

Welshman Gerwyn Price is the world’s number one and defending World Darts Champion – is history on his side when it comes to defending the title? As we all know, Phil Taylor dominated this tournament for years. He managed to win the World Darts Championship on 14 occasions – including runs of eight in a row and three in succession. There are only two more players who have successfully defended their world darts title. Adrian Lewis won back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012, while Gary Anderson did the same in 2015 and 2016. Since 2016, no one has won it two years on the bounce. Price defeated Anderson to win his first title last year with a 7-3 success, but history isn’t really on his side to retain the famous Sid Waddell Trophy. Price is the best in the world at the moment, but he will be under so much pressure at Ally Pally. Everyone wants to beat Price anyway, but they will want to be the one to take his world title from him. Price will relish that challenge, but expect the likes of Anderson, Peter Wright, Jonny Clayton, Michael Smith and Michael van Gerwyn to push him all the way. But I cannot see Price winning it this year. I honestly believe the trophy will head back to Wales, but it will be Clayton taking it home. Clayton is playing the best darts of his career – he is the current Premier League champion and won the World Grand Prix, Masters and World Series Finals in 2021. He will not have a better chance of becoming world champion, so BettingPro’s World Darts Championship tip includes Clayton winning the final and beating Price along the way.

What Are The Best World Darts Championship Betting Markets?

Who Will Win The PDC World Championship?

The most popular PDC World Darts Championship betting market is who will be the overall winner of the competition. The best World Darts Championship tips are normally based on the world rankings and recent form. The world number one or defending champion is normally the clear favourite to win the World Darts Championship. This year, the defending champion and world number one is Gerwyn Price – he is the favourite to win the tournament with most bookmakers.

The World Darts Championship History

The first-ever World Darts Championship took place in 1994. This came about after a number of players opted to leave the BDO and form the WDC – now knows as the PDC. It was seen as a massive gamble to form a breakaway as the prize money on offer was lower than the BDO event until 2001, but as we all know the PDC went from strength to strength and is the number one force in professional darts following the demise of the BDO. Dennis Priestley will go down as the first winner of the World Darts Championship, but it is Phil Taylor who is synonymous with the tournament. Taylor won his first title in in 1995 and went on to win it for eight successive years. He suffered a defeat in the 2003 final against John Part, but soon got back to winning ways with three more successive title wins. He then went on to win three more to take his overall tally to 14. Since Taylor retired from the oche, there have been five different winners. Dutch superstar Michael van Gerwen has won three, Gary Anderson two with Rob Cross, Peter Wright and Gerwyn Price winning one each. The prize money has changed dramatically over the years. From 1994 until 2001 the winner received less than the BDO, but from 2002 the PDC has seen that fund increase. In 2010, the prize fund reached £1 million for the first time with the World Champion walking away with £200,000. The current prize money fund is a staggering £2.5 million with £500,000 now being awarded to the winner.

The Alexandra Palace

During the history of the PDC World Darts Championship, it has been played at two venues. From 1994 until 2007, the home of darts was the Circus Tavern in Purfleet in Essex. It was an amazing venue, but the PDC took their showcase event to Alexandra Palace in London from 2008. It has been their home ever since.
