The Premier League Darts Association has announced that Ahoy will return next year. This is the sixth time that Rotterdam has hosted the prestigious darts tournament won by Michael Van Gerwin this year.
The Premier League has been coming to the Ahoy annually since 2016, with the exceptions of 2020 and 2021. The PDC has yet to announce the playing dates for next year.
The Circus of Arrows will remain mainly in the UK in 2023. Besides Rotterdam, only Berlin (Germany) and Dublin (Ireland) are excluded. Wales has one run with Cardiff, just like Northern Ireland with Belfast. Aberdeen and Glasgow are the host cities in Scotland.
Within England, Birmingham, Brighton, Exeter, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield are the host cities.
This year, the English Premier League was played in a new format for the first time. During the sixteen rounds, the eight participants always played a mini tournament. After four quarter-final rounds, two semi-finals and a final, the winner of the day received €12,000. In addition, the winner gets five points for ranking. The losing finalist receives three and the semi-finalists receive two. Previously, players played one match per round and got points for victories or draws. The top four darts players in the final standings got into action during the final evening. Van Gerwin eventually defeated Joe Cullen in the final fight.
