The Grand Slam of Darts lineup is close to being completed, the yearly tournament in Wolverhampton plays host to the best of PDC and BDO with only the European Championship left being the tournament that helps decide it.

Daryl Gurney and Simon Whitlock have been confirmed due to Grand Prix runs and the BDO lineup is similar to usual with World Champion Glen Durrant appearing in the lineup, Danny Noppert being apart of it once again ahead of a rumoured PDC switch and Geert de Vos returning among the 8 men in their lineup.
The likes of Michael Smith, Alan Norris, Adrian Lewis etc. are relying on someone not pulling of any shocks in the European Championship to confirm their spots otherwise they will have to take part in the PDPA qualifier which determines multiple spots in the tournament in a few weeks.
