In February, six UK Open Qualifiers will complete the field of participants for the UK Open Finals in Minehead.

The 96 players who collect the most prize money during these six qualifying tournaments earn a place at the UK Open. All Tour Card holders and Q-School entrants are allowed to participate in these qualifiers.

Winner £10,000
Runner-up £5,000
Semifinalists £2,500
Quarterfinalists £2,000
Last 16 £1,500
Last 32 £750
Last 64 £250
Total £60,000

The top 32 in the rankings get a bye for the first two rounds. Numbers 33 to 64 on the UK Open Qualifiers Order or Merit will be granted a bye for the first round. The remaining 32 players start in the first round, just like the Rileys Amateur qualifiers.

The “FA Cup of Darts” will be played from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 March. Peter Wright is the defending champion. Snakebite defeated Gerwyn Price 11-6 in the final last year.
