The 2021 Players Championship campaign will commence in February with the first of three four-day PDC Super Series events.
Last year saw the introduction of grouped blocks Players Championship events being held across five days respectively at the Summer Series, Autumn Series and Winter Series.
The 2021 season will initially see three blocks of four days held, with Super Series 1 taking place from February 25-28 in the Premier Suite at the Bolton Whites Hotel, former home of the UK Open.
Super Series 2 is scheduled to be held from March 16-19 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, while Super Series 3 is to be staged from April 24-27 at the H+ Hotel in Niedernhausen, Germany.
Each Super Series will feature four one-day £75,000 Players Championship events, with coverage from two boards to be streamed live simultaneously.
“We’re pleased to be able to introduce the Super Series and to be able to look forward to the PDC ProTour returning in February,” said PDC chief executive Matthew Porter.
“Given the current global situation, this format is the most appropriate for staging Players Championship events in a safe and secure environment, and worked well during 2020 after initially being introduced for the Summer Series.
“The Super Series will see our first 12 Players Championship tournaments of 2021 held across the next three months, with further details of the PDC calendar to be released in due course.”
