Tournament Format
The ten players will face each other once during the opening nine weeks. Following Week Nine, the bottom two players from the league table will be eliminated. From Weeks Ten-15, the remaining eight players will play each other once again. Following Week 15, the top four players will progress to the Play-Offs.

All league fixtures will be the best of 12 legs of 501. Once a player reaches seven legs, they have won the game and no further legs will be played.

Two points will be awarded for a win, one point will be awarded for a six-all draw and no points will be awarded for a defeat.

The player named on the left in the fixture will throw first in the opening leg of each game. This will be reversed in the second meeting (where applicable).

Should players be tied on points in the league table, Leg Difference will be the first deciding factor. If this is also a tie, then Legs Won Against Throw will be the next deciding factor, and any further tie would be split by a comparison of the relevant players' three-dart tournament average at that stage.

The semi-finals will be played over the best of 15 legs (first to eight) and the final will be the best of 19 legs (first to ten).

All nights will begin at 7pm and be screened live on Sky Sports HD.

Tickets can be purchased from each venue's Box Office - click here for Terms & Conditions of Ticket Sales.
Tickets can also be purchased from viagogo, the official ticket exchange of the Premier League Darts, at www.viagogo.co.uk.

Trina Gulliver MBE Investiture

Trinaís investiture took place on Friday 24th January 2014 at Buckingham Palace. The original scheduled date, 3rd October 2013, was postponed for Trina because it coincided with the Darts World Cup in Canada, an event that takes place once every two years. Trina captained England to a successful World Cup Victory.

Trina was presented her MBE medal by HRH Prince Charles at Buckingham Place accompanied by her civil partner Susan Gulliver nee Biddle. Trina wishes to thank everyone who took the time to nominate her for the award. She joins only one other professional dart player to receive an MBE Eric Bristow who received his honour in 1989.

Trina's website updated. www.tinagulliver.com

David King - Darts501.comWelcome to the Darts501.com website. I hope you like the new layout and the updated pages featured on here.

The game of darts is played and enjoyed by millions of people in UK pubs and clubs and by millions more across the World. The game has come from the humble roots of the tap and public rooms of the traditional English pub to the international stage and is regularly televised to millions across the World.

In 1978 the first World Darts Championship was organised by the British Darts Organisation and sponsored by Embassy tobacco. The winner Leighton Rees from Wales received a trophy and a cheque for the sum of £3,000.

Prize money has since increased considerably in the game of darts, and the winner of a major competition can expect to pick up a very attractive amount of money. Take for example the 2014 Ladbroke PDC World Championship, players picked up anything from £6,000 for a first round knockout, to a massive £250,000 for the competition winner. One of the biggest contributors to the rise in prize money in such competitions has been as a result of increased lucrative sponsorship deals. So if you own a highly desirable live poker odds calculator, a well-known sports brand or any other related product, the darts circuit would be a great place to get you noticed to a huge target audience.

Since 1978 the game has grown into one of the best loved and viewed sports on television. It has made many darters into house hold names here are just a few:

John Lowe three times world champion, John Part three time world champion, Martin Adams three times world champion, Eric Bristow five  times world champion, Raymond van Barneveld five times world champion & Phil Taylor sixteen times world champion.

In March 2005 the 'game' of darts was recently been recognized by 'Sport England' as a sporting activity which could pave the way to the sport featuring in future Olympic Games, however I still feel we are a long way from that day.

Darts is one of the fastest growing sports in Holland, China and Asia. Over a third of the Dutch population watched Raymond Van Barneveld become the first Dutch player to take the world darts title in 1998; he has since won the title a further four times 1999, 2003, 2005 and 2007 (Ladbrokes.com PDC World Darts Championship). Raymond beat the reigning champion Phil Taylor 7 sets to 6 and a sudden death leg in the final set. The famous Bull up for the right to throw first will long be remembered as Phil hit a outer Bull Ramond asked for the dart to be left in the board as he used it to push his dart into the centre Bull. Sinece then the Bulling up procedure in the PDC events has changed. All darts are removed before the opponents throw. Raymond now equals Eric Bristow's achievement but still trails Phil Taylor's staggering sixteen world title victories.

The prize fund for the 2010 Ladbrokes.com 'World Darts Champions' has also increased with a staggering £1,000,000, £200,000 going to the winner. A far cry from the first 'World Championships' of £3,000. The sports prize money continues to grow making a few of the current players millionaires. This prise fund as remained the same for the past three years. However is 2014 the Ladbrokes PDC World Champion Winner will be set to receive £250,000 making darts truly a sport to be reckoned with. 

The Ladbrokes.com PDC World Darts Championship moved to the Alexandra Palace in December 2007. The Alexandra Palace is affectionately know as the 'Ally Pally' and was the stage setting for the world renowned 'News of the World Darts tournaments' many years ago. This event even was probably one of the hardest to win with with a best of three legs format throughout the competition including the final.

In 2001 the BDO introduced a Ladies World Darts Championship which was won by Englandís Trina Gulliver. Trina has won this event for seven consecutive years and made the final yet again in 2008 and 2009 but only to lose to a new up and coming star Anastasia Dobromyslava from Russia in 2008 and Francis Hoenselaar from Holland in 2009. In 2010 Trina again regained the title beating Rhian Edwards from Wales 2-0 she then repeated this feat in 2011 again beating Rhain Edwards by the same margin 2-0 Making her the most successful ladies darts player in the World, a record breaking nine World Titles. Trina was awarded the MBE to services to darts and charitable fund rasing.

Anastasia moved to the PDC late 2008 and played in a preliminary qualifying round for the Ladbrokes.com PDC World Darts Championship 2009. She lost to Dutchman Remco van Eijden 5 legs to 3. She also tried to qualify for the 2010 championship but failed. Anastasia moved back to the BDO late 2010 / early 2011 and in 2012 she won  BDO / WDF Ladies Worlds Darts Championship for a second time and then again title again in 2013.
