The Premier League darts at Exeter's Westpoint Arena on Thursday night has been called off due to adverse weather conditions.
Following heavy snow across the UK and Storm Emma, the Met Office has issued a Red Weather Warning for the south-west of England on Thursday morning [March 1].
The PDC announced in a statement that they were informed by Westpoint Exeter on Thursday morning that local authority and police advice for the region was for no non-essential travel to take place and there were severe concerns over the safety of spectators and staff both accessing the venue and then leaving after the show.
Therefore, regrettably, the show will not take place on Thursday and all ticket holders should contact their point of purchase (SeeTickets or TicketZone, the event's official box offices) to receive a refund.
The 2018 Premier League heads to the First Direct Arena in Leeds next Thursday with coverage underway from 7pm on Sky Sports Action & Sky Sports Mix, which you can find on channel 287, and is free for all Sky customers. Ten weeks of tungsten action will then continue through to the season's conclusion with the Play-Offs on May 17 at The O2 in London.
