The dates and venues for the 2023 Premier League Darts season have been confirmed, with Belfast to host the opening night of action.
The new season will begin at the SSE Arena in Belfast on Thursday February 2, the first of 17 venues to host the sport’s most prestigious invitational.
The tournament will be held on consecutive Thursday nights from February to May and will retain the same format as 2022, with eight players competing each night in a knockout format before the top four players from the final league table progress to the Play-Offs.
The Play-Offs will return to The O2 in London – the venue which crowned the champion from 2012 to 2019.
As well as the opening night in Belfast, February will also feature league nights in Cardiff, Glasgow and Dublin in a high-profile opening month.
March sees the visits to Exeter, Liverpool, Nottingham, Newcastle and Berlin, while April will feature events in Birmingham, Brighton, Rotterdam and Leeds.
The season’s finale will come in May, with the final three league nights in Manchester, Sheffield and Aberdeen ahead of the Play-Offs in London.
Michael van Gerwen claimed the title for a record-equalling sixth time in 2022, edging out Joe Cullen 11-10 in a thrilling final in Berlin.
The field of players and fixture list for the 2023 event are expected to be confirmed in January.
