Premier League Darts History

The Premier League 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 and Michael van Gerwen are the most successful Premier League players of all time having won the overall title six times each, while the Power also went a record 44 games unbeaten from 2005-2008.

James Wade first broke Taylor's dominance in 2009 when defeating the Power's conqueror Mervyn King 13-8 in the final while the other champions are Gary Anderson (2011 & 2015), Raymond van Barneveld (2014), Glen Durrant (2020) and Jonny Clayton (2021).

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.
