Darts: PDC calendar

The 2023 PDC season is building to a thrilling climax at the Ally Pally, while some darts fans may already be looking forward to the action next year.

There will be over 170 days of darting action to enjoy across the PDC Tour during 2024, with events being staged at an array of new destinations.

As always, the World Championship at Alexandra Palace will be the highlight of the year, with The Masters, UK Open, World Matchplay and Premier League Darts among the other standout tournaments.

All aboard to the Palace

The 2023 PDC season is about to go into overdrive, with five majors being staged between October and the turn of the year.

Next stop is the Morningside Arena in Leicester, the new home of the World Grand Prix, where Michael van Gerwen will be seeking to successfully defend his title and lift the trophy for a seventh time.

Then it's off to Dortmund for the European Championship finals. Last year Ross Smith emerged victorious despite only qualifying as the 27th seed in the 32-man event. Can we expect another major upset this year?

Michael Smith and Van Gerwen will then be defending their crowns at the Grand Slam and Players Championship Final respectively, before they all head off to Alexandra Palace in North London for the big one, the World Darts Championship.

Defending champion Smith is 5/1 to successfully defend his title at the Ally Pally, with Van Gerwen priced at 10/3 and Gerwyn Price available at 7/2.

Swiss welcomed into PDC family

It will be a dramatic and thrilling end to 2023 before all eyes are trained on 2024, which starts with the cut-throat Q School, staged over seven days from January 8th-14th in Milton Keynes and Kalkar in Germany.

The Dutch Darts Masters kicks off next year's World Series on January 26th-27th, the Premier League starts in Cardiff on February 1st and The Masters, won this year by Chris Dobey, will be held in Milton Keynes from February 2nd-3rd.

The UK Open, won against all odds by Andrew Gilding in 2023, will return to Minehead in the first weekend in March, a week before the European Tour commences.

Next season's European Tour will once again comprise 13 events, taking in seven different countries across mainland Europe and with Switzerland hosting an event for the first time.

London calling to start summer fun

The summer swing in 2024 starts with a return to the O2 for the Premier League play-offs. Which four throwers will have emerged from the regular season to arrive in London for the chance to lift a trophy won this year by MvG?

Wales will be the defending champions at the World Cup of Darts which takes place in Frankfurt from June 27th-30th.

And then it's all off to the seaside for the World Matchplay in Blackpool, surely the highlight of the summer schedule.

One of the big changes in the 2024 PDC schedule is moving the 30 Players Championship events from weekends to midweeks.

They will run from February to October, the events being held in Wigan, Milton Keynes and Leicester, as well as the German town of Hildesheim, a regular stop on the Pro Tour.
