The future of this year’s Premier League Darts has been a major talking point since the return of darts but a revised schedule has now been confirmed for the conclusion of the season.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Rotterdam Ahoy will not host the planned double header in September. This is despite the Dutch government allowing crowds into venues; albeit social distanced.
Birmingham, Belfast, Leeds and the trip to Berlin have also fallen by the wayside; with six nights set to replace them including Judgement Night at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.
A venue which has been used for both the PDC Summer Series and upcoming World Matchplay; it will likely be a frequent spot for PDC events throughout the rest of the year; with the facilities allowing a bubble type environment.
This means that we will get six straight nights of action to confirm the second phase; which will then as it stands be played in Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield.
Before the top four players contest the play-offs in its original home of The O2 in London on October 22.
