Premier League 2021

In 2005, introduced by Matchroom Sports as the strongest competition in world darts, the premier league is a travelling darts circus all around Great Britain and Europe. 
 
The World’s top four are automatically qualified for the Premier League. In addition, the British broadcaster Sky Sports has two wildcards. The last four places are PDC wildcards. The final list has been announced on the day of the World Championship final in recent years. Since 2019, there is also room for nine Challengers, or Contenders who all play once against a Premier League player in the first nine weeks. This last group will no longer be there in 2021.

The names have been announced for the 2021 season. Gerwyn Price, Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright and Rob Cross are the world’s top four. They will be joined by Nathan Aspinall, Gary Anderson, Dimitri Van den Bergh, Glen Durrant, Jose de Sousa and Jonny Clayton. The world number one Gerwyn Price tests positive for COVID-19 the night before the Premier League starts and therefore is replaced with James Wade.

The start of the Premier League has been pushed back due to the Corona virus. The first nine rounds of play will now be played in two blocks from April 5 to 9 and from April 19 to 22. The rest of tia played in May from 5 till 7 and from 24 till 28. Glen Durrant is the defending champion, beating Nathan Aspinall in the final last year.
