The long road to the Premier League Darts Play-Offs started back in February with the top four players from the PDC Order of Merit, following the 2018/2019 World Championship, joined by five invited players. Across 16 weeks, including a double-header in Rotterdam, the players have battled it out with the opening nine matches featuring a round-robin league phase before the bottom player was eliminated ahead of six remaining league nights to decide the top four players progressing to tonight’s play-off finals.
Last week in Leeds the last four line-up was finally confirmed with world number one Michael van Gerwen winning to finish top of the Premier League group-phase table for a seventh successive year, pipping Rob Cross who was beaten by James Wade and finished second. World No3 Daryl Gurney clinched his semi-final spot to be joined by the aforesaid James Wade completing the last four.
