Tournament Format

Premier League Darts 2013The ten players will face each other once over the opening nine weeks of the tournament, over the best of 12 legs, before the bottom two players in the league table are relegated following the ninth league night in Brighton.

The remaining eight players will then face off again over the remaining five weeks – doubling up on some nights – before the top four players progress to the Play-Offs at The O2 in London on Thursday May 16.

All league fixtures will be the best of 12 legs of 501. Once a player reaches seven legs, they have won the game and no further legs will be played.

Two points will be awarded for a win, one point will be awarded for a six-all draw and no points will be awarded for a defeat.

The player named on the left in the fixture will throw first in the opening leg of each game. This will be reversed in the second meeting (where applicable).

Should players be tied on points in the league table, Leg Difference will be the first deciding factor. If this is also a tie, then Legs Won Against Throw will be the next deciding factor, and any further tie would be split by a comparison of the relevant players’ three-dart tournament average at that stage.

The semi-finals will be played over the best of 15 legs (first to eight) and the final will be the best of 19 legs (first to ten).

All nights will begin at 7pm and be screened live on Sky Sports HD.
