The 2020 Premier League Darts could be further in danger with the UK government planning to potentially ban mass gatherings amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

This move has already been taken in the Netherlands and saw Rotterdam postponed and moved to September. Future UK legs in Newcastle and Sheffield could yet be effected.

While the number in place to stop these events has not yet been confirmed with the 1,000s the Premier League gets, it will likely be forced to be cancelled.

“There are many complex considerations to make all these measures as effective as possible,” a source told the BBC.

“We will make the right decisions at the right time based on the best scientific evidence.”

This has already led to football being cancelled in the UK, as well as concerts and it seems like the Premier League Darts might be next up.
