Premier League Darts 2021

The 2021 Premier League Darts will commence on February 4th at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, just 4 months after the Covid delayed 2020 tournament finished.

The 2021 edition will consist of 16 nights at 16 different venues across the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands before the 17th and final night takes place in the Mercedes-Benz arena in Berlin. The popular Brighton Centre returns as a venue for the first time since 2016, and the play-offs in Berlin will mark the first time the final stages of the Premier League have taken place outside of the UK.

The Format and Qualification

The main competitors will be confirmed at the end of the 2021 World Championship with the top 4 from the Order of Merit joined by 5 wildcard picks. There is an additional player invited to take place as ‘challengers’ who can not win the competition but get prize money for winning the games.

The early stages are a league format with players earning points for wins and draws. At the end of phase one the bottom player in the league is eliminated at the end of phase two the top four qualify for playoff night, which is one of the biggest nights in darts!

The Contenders

The reigning champion will be Glen Durrant after his stunning victory on debut in the competition. In 2019 Durrant engaged in a twitter exchange where he said he didn’t think he would qualify for the Premier League anytime soon and just a year later he lifted the trophy which just highlights how meteoric ‘Duzzas’ rise has been. The Englishman will be one of the big favourites to push and retain his title.

Michael van Gerwen has won the Premier League 5 times, including the 4 editions prior to Durrants win but in 2020 he did not even make the playoffs for the first time in his career. MVG’s poor form extends past the premier league to most tournaments post-lockdown and he will be very eager to shake this off and get back to his brilliant best in the 2021 Premier League.

The 2020 runner up Nathan Aspinall will be looking to go one stop further next time round. ‘The Asp’ is relatively new to the top end of the professional game and won his first major tournament in 2019 and has a hand full of quarters, semis, and finals to his name. The 29-year-old will see the 2021 Premier League to again prove his worth as a world class darts player.

As always with darts there are a whole cluster of players that will look to knock the 3 mentioned above off their perch including the 2020 losing semi-finalists Michael Smith and World Champion Peter Wright who will be looking to go a step further next time out. Rob Cross, Daryl Gurney and James Wade all made the 2019 semi-finals and will also be looking to get back to that kind of form in 2021.
