The thirteenth edition of the tournament is already on the way. Following its tradition, the tournament is organized by the Professional Darts Corporation and there is no surprise there. What is a great surprise is that the favorite player for this year is Michael van Gerwen ( a Dutch professional darts player which is the reigning PDC World Champion and currently ranked world number one), defending his 2016 champion title. At that time it was Gary Anderson (Scottish professional darts player from Eyemouth, Scottish Borders, currently playing in the Professional Darts Corporation, and a former BDO and WDF world number one. He is also a two-time PDC World Champion having won it in 2015 and 2016 and is nicknamed the Flying Scotsman.) in the seat of the defending champion until he lost to Phil Taylor 10-5 in the semi-finals. Michael van Gerwen won his second Premier League Darts title by beating Taylor 11–3 in the final.
The participants for this year’s tournament were announced on 2 January 2017. The top four of the PDC Order of Merit were joined by six Wildcards – two chosen by Sky Sports and four by the PDC. The list produced the following rivals: James Wade, Dave Chisnall, Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis representing England, the Highlanders Peter Wright and Gary Anderson, Jelle Klaasen, Raymond van Barneveld and Michael van Gerwen from The Netherlands and the Belgian Kim Huybrechts.
The format of the tournament was decided in 2013 and still remains the same. During Phase One (which runs across the first nine weeks) each player plays the other nine once. At the end of it, the two players at the bottom are eliminated from the competition. For the next six weeks (Phase Two) the remaining players face each other once. The actual breakdown of the time frame in Phase 2 consists of four weeks of five matches followed by two weeks of four matches. At the end of phase 2 the top four players contest in the semi-finals and the final during the play-off week.
Rotterdam Ahoy will host the 7th Round of Phase One on 16 and 17 March.
