PDC Europe Super League

The 2021 Hylo PDC Europe Super League will be broadcast from April 17-22 on PDCTV, as Germany's top stars battle it out for a place in the 2021/22 William Hill World Darts Championship.

The tournament will return to the screens of darts fans for a second successive year, after last year's tournament saw Nico Kurz crowned champion.

Taking place at the H+ Hotel in Niedernhausen for the first time, a revamped format will see 24 of Germany's hottest talents in action across six days.

The tournament will be played on up to four boards simultaneously with selected matches broadcast live on Sport1 in Germany (online live stream) and on PDCTV where English commentary will be available.

Around 35 hours of darts will be broadcast, with all matches from the quarter-finals stage onwards will be broadcast.

The schedule of play and tournament format are confirmed below.
