Premier League Darts: Further amendments made to upcoming restart while 2021 schedule is revealed
Further amendments have been revealed to the upcoming Unibet Premier League restart, while the schedule for the 2021 season has been released with Brighton returning.
The ongoing Premier League season was suspended in March at the hands of the coronavirus pandemic, and is now scheduled to resume in late August behind closed doors in Milton Keynes.
The Marshall Arena recently hosted five Players Championship events in succession ahead of the World Matchplay, with the next six evenings of Premier League action scheduled to be held in similar fashion.
From Tuesday August 25, six consecutive nights of action, including Judgement Night, will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, before the remainder of the campaign supposedly returns to the usual arenas.
Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield and Newcastle will each front five matches accordingly, prior to London’s O2 Arena playing host to the annual Play-Offs, featuring the top four in the final league standings.

Meanwhile, the 2021 Premier League schedule was also confirmed on Wednesday afternoon, with seaside city Brighton returning and the German capital of Berlin hosting the Play-Offs next May.
The 17th edition of the unique darting extravaganza will commence on Thursday February 4 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, with the league phase then continuing for an additional 15 weeks across the continent.
In the midst of the prolonged roadshow, the Brighton Centre will play host to Judgement Night on April 1, before Berlin’s massive Mercedes-Benz Arena fronts Finals Night with thousands in attendance.
Further details regarding the 2021 Premier League will be released in due course, including the format and players competing.
