Absolutely unbelievable and long overdue for a women to smash the glass ceiling of the PDC. Absolutely no reason why women can't compete with guys on an equal basis, so hopefully Fallon will be the first of her kind. God bless her.
BDO cut World Championship prize money by 50% amid dismal ticket sales
In an explosive letter dated 30 December 2019 to the players – including Sherrock – British Darts Organisation chairman Des Jacklin admits:
Ticket sales across all sessions are currently at only 15 per cent of capacity
TV contract income has been swallowed up by “production costs”
And sports marketing agency Sportotal say they have struggled to attract new sponsors because the BDO is considered “toxic.”
Mirror Sport understands the total prize fund could be decimated from a proposed £354,000 to just £150,000.
Jacklin says in his letter: “As a player, you need to reflect on how you will react to this disappointing news.
“Regardless of the fact that we may not be able to guarantee the prize funds as first indicated... you will still be willing to honour the participation agreement and grace the BDO and audiences with your presence.”
