Eurovision Forces Premier League Changes

An amendment to the 2023 Cazoo Premier League schedule has been announced, with new dates confirmed for the nights in Liverpool and Brighton.

Following confirmation that Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena is to host the Eurovision Song Contest next year, the venue will now host the Premier League on Thursday March 9.

In addition, The Brighton Centre will stage its Premier League night on Thursday April 13, with the two venues having swapped the originally-planned dates for next year.

“We were aware that the location of the Eurovision Song Contest could impact our planned Cazoo Premier League schedule, and had held initial conversations with the M&S Bank Arena with regards to a contingency plan,” said PDC Chief Executive Matt Porter.

“Following Friday’s announcement that Liverpool will host the Eurovision Song Contest we have been able to move quickly to finalise the new dates for 2023.

“Both the M&S Bank Arena and The Brighton Centre have been very co-operative throughout the process and we look forward to returning to these popular venues next year.”

Tickets for the 2023 Cazoo Premier League will go on sale from Monday October 17. Please see pdc.tv/PLtickets for further information.
