The PDC Super Series will return in June and July ahead of qualification for the World Matchplay.
After three events, the most recent in Germany, two more events will take place before the cut off for Blackpool.
When and where the events take place?
The fourth block will happen between Monday 14 June and Thursday 17 June at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.
The fifth block is scheduled between Tuesday 6 July and Friday 9 July at the University of Bolton Stadium.
How many events will each PDC Super Series have?
As usual, four events will take place over four days. All these events will be Players Championship events.
All money won will count towards the Players Championships Order of Merit. The 64 players that win the most money at these events will go to Minehead in November, to play in the Players Championships Finals.
How does this affect the race to the World Matchplay?
The World Matchplay, which takes from Saturday 17 July to Sunday 25 July in Blackpool, will see the top 16 players in the PDC Order of Merit qualify as seeds.
They’ll be joined by the 16 players that win the most money on the Pro Tour over the last 12 months.
The PDC Order of Merit counts from July 11 2019-July 10 2021. This includes events from 2019 Players Championship 19 to the end of 2021 Players Championship 20.
The ProTour Order of Merit counts from September 11 2020-July 10 2021. This includes events from 2020 Players Championship 14 to the conclusion of 2021 Players Championship 20.
Players Championship 20 is the final Super Series event in block five, on Friday 9 July.
Will there be other tours coming back soon?
In a statement, the Chief Executive of the PDC Matt Porter said:
“We’re pleased to be able to add a further eight Players Championship events to the calendar in June and July.”
“A further two PDC Super Series will mean that players have had 20 Players Championships this year in the race to the Betfred World Matchplay, with our planned return to the Winter Gardens being a huge incentive for players battling to win a place in that unique event.
“We remain confident of confirming the return of the European Tour in the second half of 2021 and are also continuing to make plans for our Challenge and Development Tours to provide opportunities for players across all levels within the PDC system.”
