History of The Darts World Grand Prix
The BoyleSports World Grand Prix is a PDC darts tournament traditionally held in Dublin, Ireland every October, but has taken place in Leicester, England since 2021.
The tournament is unusual in that it is the only televised event in which players must commence and finish each leg on a double (including the bullseye) and is the only tournament aside from the World Championship which also uses the set format.
The First Darts World Grand Prix
The inaugural World Grand Prix was held in 1998 which was won by Phil Taylor where he won the final 13-8 against Rod Harrington pocketing a total of £9,000 from a total prize-fund of £38,000.
Most Darts World Grand Prix Titles
Phil Taylor is the most successful player at the event with eleven victories from nineteen tournaments entered. Interestingly, despite being the most successful player in the competition’s history he was knocked out of the World Grand Prix five times in the first round.
BoyleSports World Grand Prix Reigning Champion
The reigning champion is Michael van Gerwen, (the second most successful player at the event) defeated Nathan Aspinall, by a margin of 5–3, in the 2022 final to win his sixth World Grand Prix title from his twelfth appearance.
Michael Van Gerwen pocketed £120,000 from a prize-fund of £600,000 for his win.
