Final Four Prepare For Premier League Darts Play-Offs

The 2023 Cazoo Premier League Darts enters its final night on Thursday, with four of the sport's biggest names set to battle it out for the prize.

At the end of a marathon tour that began in Belfast on February 2nd, and took in 16 cities in total, it will all culminate in a tension-filled night at the O2 in London on Thursday.

Fans couldn't have asked for a better line-up, with three of the top four in the current PDC Order of Merit taking to the oche, for the right to take home the £275,000 top prize.

Here's everything you need to know about watching the 2023 Premier League Darts Final Showdown.

Who is competing in Premier League Darts play-offs?

After sixteen consecutive Thursday nights of drama, involving eight of the world's best darts players, only four remain in with a chance of becoming the 2023 Premier League champion.

Gerwyn Price comes into the play-offs having topped the eight-man table during the regular season.

He did this by winning four of the 16 nights, and finishing as runner-up on five occasions.


Despite being a former world champion, this is the first time that Price has made it to the final night of the Premier League, and he will need to get past his friend and fellow Welshman Johnny Clayton in the semi-final.


Clayton finished fourth in the regular season, just about scraping into the play-offs, as he looks to repeat his Premier League success of 2021.

World Championship Final repeat

In the other semi-final, regular season runner-up Michael van Gerwen will come up against Michael Smith in a repeat of the pair's epic World Championship Final from a few months ago.

On that occasion, it was Smith who came out on top, but the St. Helen's native, much like Price, has yet to taste glory in the Premier League.


Van Gerwen, on the other hand, is bidding to overtake Phil Taylor as the most successful player in the history of the competition, with both darts legends currently tied on six wins each.

What is the format of the Premier League Darts play-offs?

Both semi-finals will be played in a best-of-19 format, with the first player to win 10 legs reaching the final.

In the final itself, the winner will be the player who comes out on top in a best-of-21 format.


Watching the Premier League Darts play-offs on TV

The 2023 Cazoo Premier League Darts Play-Offs will be broadcast live on Thursday May 25th, on both Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action.

Coverage gets underway at 7pm.
