THE Premier League will break new ground in 2018 with its first night in Germany, as the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin joins venues in the UK, Ireland and Netherlands on the annual tour.

The Premier League will also return to Rotterdam Ahoy for a third successive year, following the sell-out success of the event in the Netherlands in 2016 and 2017, as well as arenas across the UK and Ireland from February to May.

Dublin's hugely popular 3Arena will open the 2018 season on Thursday February 1, before visiting the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff and Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena ahead of the tournament's inaugural visit to Germany.

March's five league nights begin at Exeter's Westpoint Arena before moving on to the First Direct Arena in Leeds, Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow and Belfast's SSE Arena.

April begins with Night Ten at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, with the tournament then visiting The Sheffield Arena before the third visit to the Netherlands at Rotterdam Ahoy.

League nights at The Manchester Arena, Arena Birmingham and The BHGE Arena in Aberdeen conclude the regular season, before the top four players contest the Play-Offs on May 17 at The O2 in London.

Tickets for the 2018 Premier League are likely to go on sale in September or October 2017. Full ticket information will be confirmed at
