Rotterdam Ahoy is to host a Unibet Premier League double-header in 2019 as the ten-player tournament expands to include 17 nights next year, with the season beginning in Newcastle on February 7th.
The huge popularity of the Premier League has seen the roadshow event grow from being held in the UK & Ireland's top arena venues to visit both the Netherlands and Germany in recent years.
Following the massive success of 2018's debut in Berlin, the Premier League will return to the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Thursday March 21 for the seventh league night.
The 2018 season also saw a sell-out double-header in Rotterdam to cater for the league night in Exeter being cancelled due to adverse weather.
As a result of that huge demand, next year will see Rotterdam stage league nights on March 27-28, including Judgement Night as the ten-player field is reduced to eight when the bottom two stars are eliminated.
The remaining seven league nights will each feature four matches over an increased format before the top four players proceed to the Unibet Premier League Play-Offs on Thursday May 23 at The O2 in London, where the destiny of the title will be discovered.
The league season will begin on Thursday February 7 in Newcastle, with English destinations also including Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool, Birmingham and Nottingham.
Cardiff will welcome the Premier League back to Wales, while Glasgow and Aberdeen will again host nights in Scotland alongside visits across the Irish Sea to Belfast and Dublin.
Michael van Gerwen won a third successive Premier League title as he claimed glory in the 2018 Play-Offs, defeating World Champion Rob Cross in the semi-finals and Michael Smith in the final.
The top four players from the PDC Order of Merit, following the 2018/2019 World Championship, will qualify by right and be joined by six invited players to compete in the 2019 Unibet Premier League, shown live on Sky Sports and through the PDC’s worldwide broadcast partners.
Tickets on sale at 10am on Monday 8th October 2018
