The fixtures have been confirmed for the first three nights of the Premier League’s return.

Earlier this month, the PDC announced that six straight nights of action would take place at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes. This will take place between Tuesday 25 August and Saturday 30 August.

Where are we with the Premier League?

Before the COVID-19 shutdown, the 2020 Premier League was developing into one of the best tournaments for years.

Glen Durrant leads the Premier League by one point, ahead of world number one Michael van Gerwen. Michael Smith and Nathan Aspinall occupy the other play off places at the moment.

Peter Wright is outside the top four on leg difference, and is a point ahead of Gary Anderson in 6th. Gerwyn Price is 7th, ahead of Rob Cross in 8th, both on five points.

Daryl Gurney is in the relegation place. He’s three points from safety, and with a much worse leg difference than those above him.
