Belfast will play host to the opening night of the 2023 Cazoo Premier League, with the schedule confirmed for next year’s roadshow.
The new season will begin at the SSE Arena in Belfast on Thursday February 2, the first of 17 individual venues to host the 2023 Premier League, which will be staged on Thursday nights from February to May.
The iconic Belfast venue famously saw Gerwyn Price hit two nine-dart finishes on the same night in the 2022 Premier League and will now stage the opening night for the first time.
Next season will retain the same Premier League format as introduced successfully in 2022, where the eight players compete each night in a knockout format before the top four players from the final league table progress to the Play-Offs.
The Play-Offs will return to The O2 in London, as darts’ biggest party returns to an unchanged line-up of 17 venues across the UK and Europe.
As well as the opening night in Belfast, February will also feature league nights in Cardiff, Glasgow and Dublin in a high-profile opening month.
March sees the visits to Exeter, Brighton, Nottingham, Newcastle and Berlin, while April will feature events in Birmingham, Liverpool, Rotterdam and Leeds.
The season’s finale will come in May, with the final three league nights in Manchester, Sheffield and Aberdeen ahead of the Play-Offs in London.
