Premier League Darts returns for 16 nights of unmissable competition, and you can follow the latest fixtures, results and table here.
The 16th edition of Premier League Darts will feature nine of the world’s top stars, plus a further nine ‘Challengers’ as they travel across the UK, Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands.
The first phase of the tournament features nine league rounds, with four round-robin fixtures contested each night and one match featuring a Challenger.
Following Night Nine, the bottom player in the league table will be eliminated, while the remaining players contest another round of fixtures before the top four contest the Play-Offs.
Michael van Gerwen is the defending champion and is bidding for a fifth Premier League title and sixth in total since making his debut in 2013.
The world number one is joined by reigning World Champion Peter Wright, World Matchplay champion Rob Cross and Grand Slam champion Gerwyn Price.
Two-time Premier League champion Gary Anderson returns to the line-up after missing last year’s Premier League through injury, while Michael Smith and Daryl Gurney make their third consecutive appearances.
UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall and three-time BDO World Champion Glen Durrant make their debuts in the elite invitational after enjoying landmark 2019 campaigns.
John Henderson, Fallon Sherrock, Jonny Clayton, William O’Connor, Luke Humphries, Stephen Bunting, Chris Dobey, Jeffrey de Zwaan and Jermaine Wattimena make up the nine Challengers.
All league nights will commence from 7pm GMT and matches will be contested over the best of 12 legs, with a 6-6 draw a possibility.
Two points are awarded for a win and one for a draw. Points won by Challengers will not count towards the league table, however their opponents will retain any points gained from those matches.
