Premier League Darts returns in 2023 for 17 nights of action, and you can follow the latest results, fixtures and league table here.

Eight of the world’s top players will compete in a weekly knockout format across the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany, with a total prize fund of £1 million on offer.

As well as the £10,000 weekly winner’s bonus, points will also be awarded from each night, with five to the winner, three to the runner-up and two to the semi-finalists, to form the league table from which the top four players will progress to the Play-Offs.

Across the first 16 nights, players will face each other twice in a Quarter-Final tie to form the draw for 14 nights, with the additional two nights seeing the stars face off again.

World Champion and world number one Michael Smith will headline this year’s prestigious invitational following his historic exploits at Alexandra Palace, with 2021 World Champion Gerwyn Price also returning for a fifth campaign.

Reigning champion Michael van Gerwen will be chasing a record-breaking seventh Premier League title in 2023, with 2017 runner-up Peter Wright set to make his tenth consecutive Premier League appearance.

Chris Dobey has been handed a Premier League debut in 2023 after picking up his first televised title at The Masters in January.

Jonny Clayton, the 2021 champion and last year’s league phase winner, will be aiming to regain the trophy, while Nathan Aspinall and Dimitri van den Bergh both return following a year’s absence.

Aspinall, the 2020 runner-up, will make his third Premier League appearance after featuring in TV finals at the World Grand Prix and Grand Slam of Darts over recent months.

Van den Bergh also returns to the fold following a terrific 2022 season which saw him win two World Series titles and reach World Matchplay and World Championship Semi-Finals.

The tournament will begin at the SSE Arena in Belfast on Thursday February 2, the first of 17 venues to host the event.

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 at The O2 in London.

All league nights will commence from 7pm GMT, with all matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs.
