The PDC have confirmed the line up for the 2020 World Series of Darts Finals.
The event will take place as originally scheduled between 18-20 September in the Salzburgarena in Salzburg, Austria. It’s still unclear whether fans will be allowed to attend. You can still book tickets via the PDC Europe website.
Van Gerwen looks to defend crown
The current top eight in the world will be the top eight seeds. This means defending champion, and four time winner Michael van Gerwen will be number one, with the world champion Peter Wright number two.
Gerwyn Price will be the number three seed, and World Matchplay semi finalist Michael Smith will be number four. Two former major winners, Rob Cross and Nathan Aspinall will be five and six respectively.
Former Grand Prix winner Daryl Gurney is seed number seven, with current world number eight James Wade the final seed.
Global lineup invited
The current World Matchplay champion Dimitri Van den Bergh will be at the event. Dave Chisnall and Mensur Suljovic, last year’s semi finalists, will return to the tournament.
Making their debuts at the tournament will be the league champion of the Premier League, Glen Durrant, and Poland’s number one player, Krzysztof Ratajski.
The Queen of the Palace, Fallon Sherrock, will finally make her debut at a World Series event. She won a place in every single event this year, thanks to her heroics at the William Hill World Darts Championship.
The Australian duo of Simon Whitlock, Damon Heta and have also been invited. New Zealand’s Cody Harris. Canada’s Jeff Smith and Lithuania’s Darius Labanauskas complete the 12 invited players.
In addition, there are four further places up for grabs. These will be decided on Friday 11 September in Hildesheim, as part of the PDC Autumn Series.
