The PDC Players Championship has expanded for the 2019 season.

With UK Open qualifiers now scrapped, the number of Players Championship events has risen from 22 to 30. Like last year, there is a total prize pot of £75,000 for each event, meaning that a whopping £2,250,000 is on offer across the year. All earnings will count towards the Players Championship Order of Merit. After Players Championship 30 on 15 October, the 64 participants in the 2019 PDC Players Championship Finals will be confirmed.
There’s an international edge to the season-long tournament this time around. Wigan and Barnsley remain as hosts and will stage the lion’s share of events. Tour Card holders will visit Dublin once again, this time in October. And two events will be held in Hildesheim, the host of PDC European Q-School.
Daryl Gurney is the reigning Players Championship Finals champion. He beat Michael van Gerwen 11-9 in a thrilling final in Minehead.
