The Unibet Premier League’s Judgement Night will now take place in Liverpool on April 5th, following the rearrangement of the planned fixtures from last week’s cancelled event in Exeter.
The season’s fifth night of action, which was due to take place at Exeter’s Westpoint Arena last Thursday, had to be cancelled due to widespread snow across the UK as a result of Storm Emma.
Judgement Night was originally planned to take place in Belfast on March 29th, but the five planned fixtures from Exeter have now been moved back to Night Ten at Liverpool’s Echo Arena, which means Judgement Night will also be moved back a week.
The evening will be headlined with a clash between current world champion Rob Cross and recent UK Open winner Gary Anderson, whilst the other fixtures see Michael van Gerwen play Mensur Suljovic, Raymond van Barneveld face Michael Smith, Peter Wright take on Daryl Gurney, before Simon Whitlock and Gerwyn Price do battle.
Following the conclusion of Judgement Night in Liverpool, the bottom two players in the league table will be eliminated, before the remaining eight players battle it out for a coveted spot in the play-offs, which will take place at the O2 Arena.
The PDC have confirmed that an announcement regarding the league nights following Liverpool will be made in due course, following discussions with their host broadcaster Sky Sports.
