Date Posted: 05/10/11
The calendar for next season's PDC Premier League Darts tour has been announced, with the playoff finals set to take place in London.
On Thursday February 9th 2012, the new competition gets underway at Manchester's Evening News Arena, before the second round of matches takes place a week later in Aberdeen.
The top players in the world will then visit Belfast, Exeter, Brighton, Glasgow, Dublin and Cardiff before the end of March.
In April, venues in Nottingham, Sheffield, Bournemouth and Liverpool will host events, before the qualifying rounds culminate with appearances in Birmingham and Newcastle.
Fans booking hotels near The O2 arena will then be able to see the play-off finals on Thursday May 17th, with Gary Anderson hoping to defend his 2011 title.
Since the tour started up in 2005, darts legend Phil 'The Power' Taylor has claimed five championships, with James Wade and Anderson also grabbing a slice of glory.
