Premier League Darts format, fixtures and schedule: Luke Littler, Michael van Gerwen and Luke Humphries star | Darts News | Sky Sports

Find out how the Premier League Darts work as the world’s best eight players are set to go head to head over 17 nights to the end of May.

The top four players on the Order of Merit – Luke Humphries, Michael van Gerwen, Michael Smith and Nathan Aspinall are joined by four wild cards – Luke Littler, Michael Smith, Peter Wright and Rob Cross.

Littler will be the youngest player to compete in the Premier League Darts at 17 years old and has continued to impress since the World Championship.

He made his first televised nine-darter at the Bahrain Darts Masters and went on to win the event by beating Van Gerwen. However, Van Gerwen got revenge eight days later at the Dutch Darts Masters as the pair faced off in the final again.

It sets up the most eagerly-anticipated Premier League series yet and you can watch it all live on Sky Sports – watch the opening night in Cardiff this Thursday from 7pm on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Arena.

What is the Premier League Darts format?

Since 2022, each Premier League night has become a mini tournament where the eight players compete in four quarter-finals.

The winners progress to the semi-finals to compete for a place in the final, where the winner of the night will be declared.

Every match is best-of-11 legs and the winner gets five points, the runner-up three points and the two losing semi-finalists two points.

The top four players in the Premier League table at the end of Night 16 in Sheffield will advance to the play-offs in London on May 23 at the O2 Arena.

Every player will meet once in the quarter-finals between Weeks 1 and 7, then again between Weeks 9 and 15. The fixtures in Weeks 8 and 16 are decided by league position.
