Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) is pleased to announce that The Betway Premier League Darts will return to AECC’s GE Oil & Gas Arena on Thursday 16th April 2015, and is set to feature the ten superstars of the sport!
The 11th season of Premier League Darts will see reigning champion Raymond van Barneveld, current World Champion Michael van Gerwen and 16-time World Champion Phil Taylor headlining ten players competing for £550, 000 in prize money.
The roadshow event will feature the top four players in the PDC Order of Merit following the World Championship final on January 4 and six Wildcard selections. The League kicks off in Leeds on 5th February, before visiting the UK and Ireland’s largest Arenas over the following 15 weeks, including Aberdeen’s GE Oil & Gas Arena in week 11, as the players battle for the prestigious title.
PDC Chairman Barry Hearn commented: “We’re already seeing great competition between players as they look to either break into the world’s top four or stake their claim for a Wildcard selection. With a further six major televised tournaments to go before we confirm the Betway Premier League Darts field, there’s still the chance for a new face to break through and earn their place in what is an ever-expanding tournament. The Premier League Darts concept has come a long way in the past decade since our first season back in 2005, but fans continue to be guaranteed fantastic darts from the best players on the planet!”
Brian Horsburgh, Managing Director of AECC, commented; “We look forward to welcoming the Betway Premier League Darts to the GE Oil & Gas Arena. A very popular and lively event; it is a great chance for North East fans to see their favourite players live in Aberdeen and be part of the exciting atmosphere.”
