The 2014 Premier League will feature brand new innovative Unicorn boards.

For the first time in a television tournament, Unicorn's High Definition boards will feature 'live' on Sky Sports HD during the event, which kicks-off in Liverpool on February 6.

The concept has been in development for the last two years and the Unicorn Eclipse HD board was trialled on the PDC Pro Tour last year.

The news comes as Unicorn launches its 2014 range, which features a host of new products from 'The Big Name in Darts."

Unicorn Managing Director Edward Lowy said: "It is unique. The board has been a success on the tour. The players, the viewers and the thousands packing all the venues will enjoy a new experience during the Premier League."

"The clarity on the Unicorn Eclipse HD board is remarkable. For over 70 years we have brought innovation to every aspect of the game and we will strive to carry on raising the bar."

PDC Chairman Barry Hearn Is delighted with the ground breaking board: "Unicorn have consistently been at the forefront of darts technology and their development of the Unicorn Eclipse HD board continues that trend. The HD board not only looks fantastic but it will be the best dartboard for our stars to play on."

The new HD board features a seamless playing surface with HD 20/20 white digital numbering and will enhance the viewing experience over the 16 weeks of the Premier League.

It has been given a big thumbs-up by the players.

Team Unicorn star Raymond van Barneveld said: "I am sure it will prove to be a big hit during the Premier League. It is all about improving the product and Unicorn as a company, is always at the heart of taking our sport forward."

Going forward, the new HD board will be used in every TV 'Major'.

The new 2014 Unicorn range will be launched on this website on Friday 31st January.
