Who is playing?

The line up sees 117 of the 128 Pro Tour players at the events, with 11 Challenge Tour players joining too.

The highest profile name not on the list of entrants is Gary Anderson. He has announced he will not play in these events, and at the World Series of Darts Finals, due to travel concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic.

What will these events count towards?

The Autumn Series will count towards the overall PDC Order of Merit, as well as the Pro Tour Order of Merit.

These events will also count towards the Players Championship Order of Merit. The top 64 players on this list will play in the Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals at Butlin’s Minehead in November.

In addition, these are the final Pro Tours before we know the World Grand Prix field. Players qualify if they’re in the top 16 of the:

  • PDC Order of Merit. These players will be seeded
  • Pro Tour Order of Merit, if they’re not already in the top 16 on the normal order of merit.

The final cut off for the Grand Prix is next month’s Euro Tour event in Germany.

Finally, the player who earns the most money over the five days will receive a spot in the 2020 Grand Slam of Darts.
