Glen Durrant is the defending Premier League Darts champion

Premier League Darts 2021: Dates, fixtures, line-up, results, table, venues, tickets & TV schedule


The full line-up, early dates and venues ahead of the 2021 Unibet Premier League Darts season, with the fixture list to be announced soon.

Dimitri Van den Bergh, Jose de Sousa and Jonny Clayton will make their Unibet Premier League debuts when the new campaign begins in Milton Keynes on April 5.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and associated restrictions, the PDC will stage opening nine nights of the 10-player tournament behind closed doors at the Marshall Arena from April 5-9 and April 19-22, with the last of those being Judgement Night when the bottom two players in the league table are eliminated.

A further seven league nights will then be held as the remaining eight players bid to claim spots in the Play-Offs, which will see the semi-finals and final held to determine the 2021 champion, with a decision regarding dates and venues to be made in due course.

The tournament, which usually runs for 17 successive Thursday nights unless a global pandemic gets in the way, was reverted to the old 10-player format this year without the weekly 'Challengers' of the past two seasons.

Here's everything that's been announced so far but keep this page bookmarked because it will eventually have updated fixtures, results, standings, weekly round-ups and statistics while it already has a comprehensive history section.

Reigning champion Glen Durrant headlined the first nine competitors confirmed by the PDC following the World Championship final - but Jonny Clayton bagged the last spot after clinching his maiden individual major title at the season-opening Masters.

Last year's World Matchplay winner Dimitri Van den Bergh and Grand Slam of Darts champion Jose De Sousa are both included for their first Premier League seasons, although the young Belgian made a Contender appearance in 2019.

Five-time Premier League champion Michael van Gerwen and two-time winner Gary Anderson will be aiming to regain the trophy in 2021, while new world champion Gerwyn Price, Peter Wright, Rob Cross and Nathan Aspinall are also included in the field.

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 only won it twice since then, with Gary Anderson (2011 & 2015), Michael van Gerwen (2013, 2016, 2017, 2018 2019), Raymond van Barneveld (2014) and Glen Durrant (2020) 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.
