The 2019 Unibet Premier League gets underway tonight as Winmau’s Daryl Gurney opens his campaign against Gerwyn Price.
The first stop for this year’s prestigious tournament is the Utilita Arena, Newcastle as Superchin returns for his second year. Gurney impressed in his opening campaign, finishing narrowly outside the play-off positions.
Chris Dobey will make his debut on the stage as the first of 9 “Contenders” that have been introduced for this year’s league, when he faces Mensur Suljovic.
The night will open with the returning James Wade facing Raymond van Barneveld, whilst we see a repeat of the World Championship final between Michael van Gerwen and Michael Smith later in the evening.
Rob “Voltage” Cross and Peter “Snakebite” Wright will close the evening in a battle of 2nd v 3rd on the PDC Order of Merit.
Coverage starts live on Sky Sports at 7pm in the UK and via the PDC’s broadcast partners Worldwide.
