Premier League Darts is an invitational road-show event featuring ten of the world's top players competing over 15 weeks of round robin action, with the top four players qualifying for finals night at The O2 Arena in May.

The popular tournament launched in 2005 and has grown to become of the UK's largest indoor sporting events.

Matches are held across the country at different arena venues every Thursday night, holding up to 12,000 people. The top four players in the PDC Order of Merit are joined by six wild card selections to comprise the star-studded field.

Phil Taylor dominated the early years of the event, winning five of the first seven titles. He went unbeaten throughout the first three seasons before James Wade ended his 44 match run in the first match of the 2008 season. 

'The Power' also became the first player ever to hit two nine-darters in the same televised match during an epic 2010 final against Wade at Wembley Arena.

Gary Anderson (2011 and 2015) and Michael van Gerwen (2013 and 2016) are the only other multiple winners of this prestigious title, while Wade claimed glory in 2009 and Raymond van Barneveld reigned supreme in 2014.

Van Gerwen has finished the regular campaign top of the table in each of the past five seasons as well as going on to reach the final and also set a new televised record average of 123.4 against Michael Smith in Aberdeen in 2016.
