For the first time since the big televised tournaments in the Netherlands disappear from TV, the BDO organises a big new tournament on TV. Venue is the Blackpool Tower in 2014. One year later the tournament moves to Manchester and in 2016 Lakeside is the new venue.

There are 32 men in the draw. Eighteen top players in the world, plus eight regional qualifiers, four players via a qualifier and two wildcards.

The Englishman James Wilson would become the inaugural champion. Thus adding the second major title to his list, after the Zuiderduin Masters 2013. In 2015 Belgium ace Geert de Vos claims his first ever TV win and in 2016 Darryl Fitton wins his first major on British soil.
