The 2020 Unibet Premier League season is set to begin at P&J Live, bringing a record crowd for the event in Aberdeen
Aberdeen has been a sell-out destination for the Premier League for over a decade, welcoming capacity crowds to the AECC.
However, a move to the P&J Live will see the Premier League season open in style on Thursday February 6 in front of a record crowd for the event in the city.
Barry Hearn Chairman at PDC: said“The 2019 Unibet Premier League proved hugely successful and the confirmation of the schedule for 2020 is an exciting moment for us,”
“To make our debut at the new P&J Live in Aberdeen will be a fantastic way to start the season, and once again we’ll be visiting Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany throughout four months of top-class action.”
The tournament will then move to Nottingham, Cardiff and Dublin during the remainder of February before the visit to Westpoint Exeter on Thursday March 5 ahead of the UK Open.
Further league nights in Liverpool and Newcastle will be followed by a double-header at Rotterdam Ahoy on March 25-26, the second of which will be Judgement Night, as the popular Dutch venue welcomes back the Premier League.
The remaining players will then compete across the final seven league nights in a bid to secure Play-Off places, beginning on Thursday April 2 in Belfast.
Sheffield and Manchester then host further league nights before the Premier League visits Berlin for a third successive year on Thursday April 23, with German fans having flocked to the Mercedes-Benz Arena during 2017 and 2018.
League nights in Birmingham, Glasgow and Leeds follow to conclude the regular season, with the Play-Offs then seeing the destiny of the title confirmed on Thursday May 21 with the semi-finals and final at The O2 in London.
Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment at P&J Livecommented: “We look forward to bringing back the Unibet Premier League Darts to Aberdeen, this time at our brand new events venue P&J Live which will be even bigger and better. We are thrilled to have the league to start in Aberdeen, as we know our North-East fans always provide a warm and energetic atmosphere.”
