Premier League Darts 2024 final LIVE! Luke Littler vs Michael Smith kicks off play-offs tonight

LIVE – Updated at 18:35

Premier League Darts final LIVE!

The O2 Arena hosts the play-offs of the 2024 Premier League Darts tournament tonight as a hard-fought, 16-week campaign across the continent comes to a head in London.

Luke Littler topped the regular season table and heads into the final as the top seed, setting himself up with a semi-final clash against Michael Smith. World champion Luke Humphries, who finished second, then takes on Michael van Gerwen.

The semi-finals are best of 19 legs before a winner-takes-all final, which is best of 21 legs. Intriguingly, the final round of the regular season in Sheffield just a week ago provided a glimpse into who may win each match-up as Smith beat Littler and Humphries beat Van Gerwen in that evening’s semis. But, anything can happen in a single game of darts and you can follow all the latest updates LIVE via Standard Sport’s blog.

Who's won the most Premier League Darts titles?

18:28 , Marc Mayo

Michael van Gerwen is the competition’s record-holder with seven titles, which he’ll look to add to later on tonight.

Phil Taylor follows with six. In fact, the duo were the only players to top the league table in the competition’s first 15 seasons!

However, not all of those regular-season triumphs turned into trophy lifts on finals night.

The last three league leaders, Gerwyn Price, Jonny Clayton and Van Gerwen (in 2021) all failed to seal the deal in the play-offs.

Luke Littler, beware!

How the regular season ended

17:55 , Marc Mayo

Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price and Rob Cross were all well off the pace when it came to securing a play-off spot, although Cross did enjoy a resurgence of form in the latter weeks.

Nathan Aspinall’s quarter-final defeat to Michael Smith in Sheffield deprived him of a crack at finals night and ‘Bully Boy’ took fourth place with 25 points and two nightly wins.

Michael van Gerwen secured four nightly wins but his penchant for early exits meant he only landed third place.

It went to the wire between Luke Littler and Luke Humphries, who each won four nights, but Littler’s overall consistency saw him edge first place 40 points to 36.
