THE McCoy's Premier League Darts will return to the SECC in Glasgow on Thursday March 28 2013 as part of the event's three-month tour of the UK & Ireland.
The world's leading eight players - led by reigning McCoy's Premier League Darts champion Phil Taylor and current World Champion Adrian Lewis - will compete in the tournament, which is screened live on Sky Sports across 15 successive Thursday nights.
The 14-week league season, which sees players face each other twice, will begin on Thursday February 7 in Belfast, with the SECC welcoming the stars back to Scotland on March 28 as the second half of the league season begins,
This year’s visit to Glasgow included a narrow win for Simon Whitlock over Scottish star Gary Anderson, as well as wins for James Wade, Raymond van Barneveld and Phil Taylor, who went on to claim the title for a sixth time in May.
"The McCoy's Premier League Darts was the best-ever in 2012 and we're already looking forward with excitement to next year's tournament," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
"Not only did we celebrate two nine-dart finishes during the course of the event, but the players who achieved that feat, Phil Taylor and Simon Whitlock, went on to contest a brilliant final in London.
"The race for Play-Off places also went right to the final night with seven of the eight players still in contention, which shows how keenly fought this prestigious title is.
"The McCoy's Premier League Darts continues to get better and better each year, and next year's event promises to be a memorable tournament."
The McCoy's Premier League Darts will feature the top four players from the PDC Order of Merit at the start of January following the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship, along with four Wildcard selections.
The world's top four currently features Phil Taylor, Adrian Lewis and former Premier League Darts champions James Wade and Gary Anderson - with Wes Newton, Andy Hamilton, Simon Whitlock and Terry Jenkins all vying to break into that group and earn an automatic place in the tournament.
