The Betway Premier League will once again conclude at The O2 in London next year, with the likes of Michael van Gerwen, Phil Taylor and Gary Anderson set to be competing for the prestigious title in the Play-Offs on Thursday 18 May, 2017.
The Betway Premier League sees ten stars competing across four months at arenas in the UK, Ireland and Netherlands in a bid to win the coveted trophy, which was claimed for a second time by van Gerwen in 2016.
The Premier League, televised live by Sky Sports and broadcast worldwide, has also been won six times by legendary Stoke star Taylor since its inception in 2005, with Scottish hero Anderson – the back-to-back World Champion – claiming the title twice and both James Wade and Raymond van Barneveld also lifting the trophy.
The 2017 season will begin in Newcastle on Thursday February 2 and visits Nottingham, Leeds, Brighton, Exeter, Glasgow, Rotterdam, Manchester and Cardiff in the first half of the season before Judgement Night sees the bottom two players eliminated from the event.
The remaining eight stars will then compete across the final six league nights, visiting Dublin, Liverpool, Belfast, Birmingham Sheffield and Aberdeen before the top four players in the final league table win spots in the Play-Offs at The O2 in London on May 18.
The top four players from the PDC Order of Merit following the 2016/2017 World Championship will qualify by right for the Betway Premier League, alongside six Wildcard selections to be announced during January.
