Gabriel Clemens will not play in the Premier League Darts 2023. The name of the “German Giant” is not on a list of the darts world association PDC with the eight participants. At the beginning of January there were corresponding reports after his entry into the semi-finals of the Darts World Cup.

Germany’s best darts professional Gabriel Clemens did not get the hoped-for wildcard for the multi-million dollar Premiere League. The 39-year-old world championship semi-finalist is not one of the eight participants for the prestigious event, as the world association PDC announced on Twitter on Monday.

At the beginning of January, voices were still being raised that the “German Giant” had received an invitation. At that time he was the first German of all time to reach the semi-finals of the Darts World Cup. FOCUS online also reported on it. These reports were not confirmed.

The top four players in the rankings were seeded for the Premier League, which begins next Thursday in Belfast. Apart from the Welsh premier Gerwyn Price, there are world champions Michael Smith (England), Michael van Gerwen (Netherlands) and Peter Wright (Scotland). The four wildcards went to Jonny Clayton (Wales), Nathan Aspinall (England), Dimitri van den Bergh (Belgium) and Chris Dobey (England).

Clemens himself had not expected an appointment for the Premier League. Most recently, he lost in the first round at the Masters in Milton Keynes.
