Can you name every city to host a Premier League night?

Sometimes the players are not the only stars of darts, the venues can play a real part in which player comes out victorious, so Darts World has forged a quiz around Premier League cities.

The Premier League is now in it’s 14th year and as the quality of darts has progressed so has the size of the venue.

In its maiden year, leisure centres in the UK were used to host some of the events whereas today the biggest venues across Europe are being used to bring entertainment on a Thursday night.

Over its 14 years, 36 cities have been lucky enough to host the biggest darting players on the planet with some lucky enough to host a monumental 14 times while others a solitary 1.

With judgement night getting closer, what better way to celebrate than trying to guess all the host cities.

The quiz is powered by Sporcle and created by Ross Deakin for Darts World.

There are 36 answers to get in 10 minutes, adjacent to the answer is the number of times the city has been a host and the answers are in alphabetical order so if your memory is a bit rusty then hopefully it will help to trigger something!

The venue that got cancelled this year has still been included as it would have gone ahead had it not been for the ‘beast from the east’.

Ahead of the top of the table Premier League clash between Michael Smith and Michael van Gerwen next Thursday, Darts World have created a quiz around the young Englishman.

2018 has been the start of a renaissance for Smith, losing to the eventual winner in one of the best games of the World Championship and only being displaced at the top of the Premier League by leg difference.

Now with him destined to reach the pinnacle of darts what better way to celebrate than testing how much you know about ‘Bully Boy’.

The quiz is powered by Sporcle and forged by Ross Deakin for Darts World.

There are 15 questions in total and you have 7 minutes to answer them all, each question has 4 answers so if you are unsure on one then at least you still have a 25% chance of getting it right!

If you are ready, then click the play button below and enter your answers in the box provided.

Without revealing too much about Michael Smith and ruining the quiz, here is a bit of background about him.

Smith was born on the 18th September 1990 in England and began playing darts in his teenage years to avoid boredom. He hit first ever 180 came whilst on crutches!

After dropping out of a college course to pursue darts, Smith made his first PDC debut at the UK Open in 2009.

Since then, he has reached the quarter-finals or better of various majors and as his age has matured so has his game.

Smith’s first experience of the Premier League is something he does not think too fondly of after only winning one game. However, this year Smith had already surpassed his previous points tally by week 2.

Smith will be hoping to continue his great form into the upcoming majors.

So, if you want to learn even more about Smith, try playing our quiz.

Max Hopp quiz

Ahead of the inaugural German Darts Masters World Series event, Darts World have come up with a dedicated Max Hopp quiz in recognition of the nation’s highest profile player.

It’s hard to believe that the starlet is aged just 21, and has a hugely promising future ahead of him for many years (and possibly decades) to come.

He’s already achieved so much in his short career to date, but how much do you know about him?

Why not test your darting knowledge by trying out our Max Hopp quiz, which is powered by Sporcle and conjured up by Sam Barnard for Darts World?

You have just 6 minutes to guess them all. In total, there are 15 questions, each with four multiple choice answers, so even if you are unsure about any you’ll still have a one in four chance of getting it correct.

Without giving too much away for our Max Hopp quiz, here is a bit of background about him.

Born in Idstein, Germany, on August 20th 1996, Hopp initially took part in BDO and WDF events, and won a ranking title and reached another final in just his maiden year aged only 14.

Hopp since became the second-youngest ever player to take part in the PDC World Championship, and is fast becoming one of the biggest names on tour.

His rise in the game has coincided with Germany’s rapidly growing love for the game, and he has become somewhat of a poster boy for the sport in his nation.

The young-gun has dealt with the pressure extremely well to date, winning the 2015 World Youth Championship and helping guide his country to two World Cup of Darts quarter-final appearances. He also already has a nine-dart finish to his name!

Without giving too much away for our Peter Wright quiz, here is a bit of background about him.

Born on March 10, 1970, Snakebite initially chose to represent England as a youngster way back in the 1995 BDO World Championship.

It took him a few years to get going, but at the time of writing he is now number three in PDC world rankings, and if he carries on at this pace he’ll be challenging Michael van Gerwen for top spot in the next year or so.

Wright’s walk-on dance across the stage, colourful attire and mowhawk hairstyle, made by his wife, have made him a fans’ favourite in recent years.

Although his opponents have not always warmed to the former, it is certainly now hard to imagine a darting world without Snakebite’s pre-match ritual to excite the crowd.

Wright is feared across the globe thanks to his ability on the oche, and he finally won his maiden Major earlier in 2017. Surely there’ll be more to come too…

Televised 9-darts quiz

Snooker has the 147 maximum break, golf the hole-in-one, cricket six sixes in an over and tennis the golden set. Most sports have their version of a holy grail, where perfection is achieved.

Darts has the 9-dart finish, an accomplishment that doesn’t happen very often – and even less so on TV. Depending on whichever source you believe, a total of 50 televised perfect legs across the PDC and BDO have been thrown in history, with 24 players in total having done so.

Without giving too much away for our televised 9-darts quiz, here is a bit of background.

In total, there are 3,944 different ways to achieve a perfect leg.

Players nearly always start on treble 20, but in the PDC World Grand Prix event stars must begin and end on a double – only three have ever done this.

The first ever televised 9-darter was thrown in 1984, but it took another six years until the next was witnessed.

A further 12 years passed until the third perfect leg on TV was thrown, but since then it has become a more regular occurrence.

There were none in 2003, but there has been at least one every year since, with the most in one year (seven) coming in 2012.

Many players and even greats of the game have failed to throw a nine-darter on TV, but eight have done so multiple times.

So, without further ado, see how you do in our televised 9-darters quiz!

To give you a bit of history about the uniquely thrilling Premier League Darts competition, read on below.

Starting in 2005, it originally consisted of seven participants – one of whom is the only person to have taken part in all 13 Premier League campaigns to date.

The event now consists of 10 players, who battle it out around the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands every Thursday evening for 16 weeks in a round-robin format.

After playing each other once, the league’s bottom two in the table are eliminated. The remaining stars then continue to face each other once more on a weekly basic until the play-offs, where the top four tussle at London’s grand O2 Arena for the coveted trophy.

Just five of the 28 Premier League participants have managed to lift the title, with three of them doing so multiple times.

Meanwhile, the most recent 2017 season is the first time there has been no debutant in the competition.

As interest in the competition has vastly grown, venues have become bigger and crowds all the more passionate and energetic when watching their darting heroes.

Memorable nights at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, SSE Hydro in Glasgow and Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, have meant that the event is one of the most exciting spectacles in darts and perhaps even sport in general.
