The Unibet Premier League nights planned for Manchester, Berlin and Birmingham during April are the latest events to be postponed.

With worldwide restrictions continuing, the postponements mean that all five planned Premier League nights in April will now be rearranged, following Monday's announcement that the visits to Belfast and Sheffield will not take place as initially scheduled.

The visits to Manchester and Berlin have been moved to September, while the visit to Utilita Arena Birmingham will now be in July.

The rescheduled dates are as follows:
Thursday April 16 - The Manchester Arena - NOW Thursday September 24
Thursday April 23 - Mercedes-Benz Arena, Berlin - NOW Thursday September 3
Thursday April 30 - Arena Birmingham - NOW Thursday July 30

The changes mean that at least eight Unibet Premier League nights will now be rescheduled, with the five April dates following the postponements of the visit to Newcastle and the Rotterdam double-header in March.

At present, the Unibet Premier League is now planned to conclude in Newcastle on Thursday October 1.

Tickets purchased for the original league nights will remain valid for the new dates. Should any fans with tickets be unable to attend the new date, they will be entitled to a refund from their point of purchase.

Revised Unibet Premier League Schedule
At March 24 2020
May 7 2020 - The SSE Hydro, Glasgow
May 14 2020 - First Direct Arena, Leeds
May 21 2020 - The O2, London
July 2 2020 - The FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield
July 30 2020 - Utilita Arena Birmingham

TBC - The SSE Arena, Belfast

Any further announcements in relation to the Unibet Premier League or other PDC tournaments will be made once available through www.pdc.tv/Coronavirus.

My personal opinion, and I hope to be wrong, is that none of those dates will go ahead.

Yeah, whatever happens and whatever rules do get relaxed over time, you can bet that mass gatherings will only come back when we have, or are very close to a vaccine

Nah, given the international effort I would think by the end of the year. This is unprecedented after all.

Doesnt really matter how many people are on it, the time is mostly to allow testing to ensure it works correctly and doesnt endanger people further with side effects etc... theres only so much you can speed that up.

Pay-per-view is the answer, now, who is going to arrange what game.

I think like the swine flu vaccine testing will be minimised. Is better to have a vaccine in use than years of testing. As we saw with swine flu a few bad reactions is a price worth paying to get the vaccine to vulnerable people.

They will also probably want to be prudent in the time needed so we may see a vaccine early in 2020.

I can’t see big arena events like PL happening until then with a crowd. Stuff like football is outside and you mingle with fewer people even though more in total at match.

May's planned Unibet Premier League nights in Glasgow, Leeds and London have been rescheduled for later in 2020, with the season also now set to conclude in Sheffield.

The Premier League season has been suspended since mid-March following restrictions imposed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, with the league nights affected having been rearranged during 2020.

It has now been confirmed that the planned events at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, the First Direct Arena in Leeds and at The O2 in London have also now been postponed.

In addition, the planned move of the visit to The FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield to Thursday July 2 has also been amended, with the venue now set to host the Play-Offs on Thursday October 15 as part of the new-look schedule, should no further events be affected.

Details have also been finalised for the rescheduled visit to The SSE Arena in Belfast, which will now host the Premier League on Thursday August 13.

The rescheduled dates are as follows
Thursday May 7 - The SSE Hydro, Glasgow - NOW Thursday September 17
Thursday May 14 - First Direct Arena, Leeds - NOW Thursday August 27
Thursday May 21 - The O2, London - NOW Thursday August 20
Thursday July 2 - FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield - NOW Thursday October 15

The announcement means that the visit to Birmingham is now set to see the season resume with Night Seven on Thursday July 30, with The O2 hosting Judgement Night on August 20 as the ninth-placed player in the league table is eliminated.

That doesn't mean the PL format wasn't and isn't stale.

Do the PDC know something the rest of the entire world doesnt? How can you possibly set a date to restart?

Yes it is a bit premature, at least the BDO have held back on confirming the dates of any of their tournaments, common sense.

Of course they do. Barry Hearn and Matt Porter are gods and the PDC can predict everything. Would suggest if you disagree with this, please do us all a favour and piss off. :grin:

Take it you will be watching the Taylor vs Barney match tonight. ;-)
