How much Luke Littler could earn if he wins Premier League Darts 2024 as prize money confirmed

The amount Luke Littler could earn if he wins the competition.

The amount that the likes of Luke Littler and Michael van Gerwen could earn if they win the 2024 Premier League Darts has been confirmed.

The new season is set to get underway on Thursday 1 February, with Peter Wright taking on Rob Cross in the first match of the campaign at the Utility Arena in Cardiff.

A number of other stars of the sport, including Van Gerwen and Littler, will hope to beat world number one Luke Humphries to the trophy.

Both Littler and Humphries, who featured in a thrilling World Darts Championship final earlier on in January, will face off again in the final game of the first evening on Thursday.

Littler, 17, lost the World Darts Championship final but won his most recent meeting with Humphries at the Dutch Masters, on his way to being defeated by Van Gerwen in the final.

Ahead of the competition starting this evening, the prize money the players will be competing for has now been revealed.

The total prize pot sits at a staggering £1million - which is the same amount as the 2023 tournament.

The winner will receive around £275,000 if they emerge victorious after three months of action, while the runner-up will walk away with £125,000 for their efforts.

Nathan Aspinall and 2023 runner-up Gerwyn Price also join the list of players who are competing for the title.

Speaking after his Dutch Masters defeat to Van Gerwen last week, Littler outlined his ambitions to bounce back as he looks ahead to his Premier League debut in Wales.

"Hopefully I haven't burnt myself out for the Premier League next week," he said.

"But I'll take this as match practice and it goes into my World Series ranking, but I can't wait to go down to Cardiff."
