The dates for the expanded 2019 Premier League Darts season have been announced and tickets are now on general sale.

Ten of the world's best players, who are selected after the 2019 World Championship concludes, will begin the longer 17-week campaign in Newcastle on February 7 and it will all end at the O2 on May 23.

Inbetween there will be a double header in Rotterdam and the tournament will also return to Berlin's Mercedes-Benz Arena following the success of its first outing there in 2018.

This year's sold out double header in Rotterdam occurred to make up for the night in Exeter being cancelled due to adverse weather - but it proved such a hit that a repeat is now scheduled in for March 27 and 28, when Judgement Night occurs!

Two players then drop out and the remaining seven league nights will feature four matches over an increased format in Liverpool, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds.

Below are all the dates, venues and ticket information while the full line-up and odds will also appear here when announced.

Premier League Darts History

The Premier League, a much-loved event for all darts fans and punters, was launched by Sky Sports in 2005 and takes the sport's biggest names all over the UK and Ireland as they compete in a round robin format in a bid to reach the play-offs, when the title is ultimately decided.

The world's top four automatically qualify for the event and are joined by six wildcard selections made by the PDC and Sky Sports to complete a final field.

Unsurprisingly Phil Taylor is the most successful Premier League player of all time having topped the table eight times and going on to lift the trophy on six occasions, while he also went a record 44 games unbeaten from 2005-2008.

James Wade first broke his dominance in 2009 when defeating Taylor's conqueror Mervyn King 13-8 and The Power has only won it twice since then, with Gary Anderson (2011 & 2015), Michael van Gerwen (2013, 2016, 2017 & 2018) and Raymond van Barneveld (2014) being the other champions.

Below we have details of the past finals, a selection of records, the final table of each previous season and a look at which players have ever featured in the event.
