The Premier League of darts will return to Aberdeen in 2015.
The AECC will host 10 stars for the 11th season of the popular tournament on Thursday, April 16, 2015.
Reigning champion Raymond van Barneveld, current world champion Michael van Gerwen and 16-time world champion Phil Taylor will headline the 10 players competing for £550,000 in prize money.
The roadshow event will feature the top four players in the PDC Order of Merit following the World Championship final on January 4 and six Wildcard selections. The League kicks off in Leeds on February 5, before visiting the UK and Ireland’s largest Arenas over the following 15 weeks, including Aberdeen’s GE Oil & Gas Arena in week 11, as the players compete for the title.
PDC Chairman Barry Hearn commented: “We’re already seeing great competition between players as they look to either break into the world’s top four or stake their claim for a Wildcard selection.
“With a further six major televised tournaments to go before we confirm the Betway Premier League Darts field, there’s still the chance for a new face to break through and earn their place in what is an ever-expanding tournament. The Premier League Darts concept has come a long way in the past decade since our first season back in 2005, but fans continue to be guaranteed fantastic darts from the best players on the planet!”
Brian Horsburgh, Managing Director of AECC, commented; “We look forward to welcoming the Betway Premier League Darts to the GE Oil & Gas Arena. A very popular and lively event; it is a great chance for North East fans to see their favourite players live in Aberdeen and be part of the exciting atmosphere.”
