The 2019 PDC Darts Calendar has been revealed with major changes in major tournaments as well as on the European and Pro Tour events.

Among them include an expanded Premier League, the new UK Open format, 30 Players Championship events and a new European Tour event. This means that there will be over 200 days of darts in a year which in turn brings more opportunities for players and fans.

TV Events

The Premier League Darts like alluded to will be expanded and that will be to 17 nights. Rotterdam’s double header, which was a late addition last year, remains.

These events will also include the dreaded Judgement Night which as usual will be completed around events such as The Masters and The UK Open.

The World Cup of Darts remains but in a new venue of Hamburg. The European Championship also moves to the popular Gottingen which is a host of a European Tour. One of the major pieces of news regards the Netherlands with the World Series of Darts Finals set to move from Vienna to Amsterdam.

Pro and Euro Tour

Also the European Tour will have an event in Prague with other venues such as Sindelfingen and Riesa in Germany remaining as does Gibraltar, Czech Republic and Denmark.

Germany will get a Pro Tour weekend as well with Hildesheim, home of the European Qualifying School hosting in August, with 30 events including four mid-week double headers planned.

Q-School finally will change as well with European Qualifying School being straight after the World Championship. UK players will play for a Tour Card a few weeks later between January 17th and 20th.
