Cancel your Thursday night plans until 23 May, because the Premier League Darts roadshow is coming to town. Newcastle (Night 4) is on Thurs, 22nd Feb and features Peter Wright vs Luke Littler among others. Below: how to watch FREE Premier League Darts live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
Littler, who's just turned 17, is one of only two 2024 Premier League Darts contenders not to have won the world championship, while Michael van Gerwen – who won Nights 2 and 3 of the PL Darts – is aiming to become the first player to win three consecutive titles... since he pulled off the feat six years ago.
To say that Littler has given darts a shot in the arm would be a gross understatement. His jaw-dropping run to the final of the World Championships turned the oche into the hottest stage in the world, not to mention beating van Gerwen in the final of the Bahrain Darts Masters before losing to the same opponent in the final of the Dutch Darts Masters. The youngster continues proving that he's the real deal, narrowly missing out to his world class rival in the Night 2 final.
Even Mighty Mike has felt moved to admit that Luke the Nuke is a serious threat, which in itself should inspire – or provoke – the likes of Luke Humphries, Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price and Rob Cross while Michael Smith in particular looks to regain his spot at the top of the table.
Read on for how to watch Premier League Darts for free online, or check out how to watch Luke Littler play darts.
