No Grand Slam spot available for PDC Super Series yet

The ProTour season kicks off on Thursday with the first PDC Super Series with four Players Championship tournaments set to take place in Bolton.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic last year, the PDC was forced to organize several Players Championship tournaments in a row to fill up spots on the calendar.

These were divided into the Summer Series, Autumn Series and Winter Series but this time, they will be called Super Series.

The first one takes place from February 25-28, with ones in March (16-19) and April (24-27).

Last year, a combined Order of Merit was drawn up during these different series. This saw the highest ranked player invited to the Grand Slam of Darts.

The PDC have yet to confirm whether this will return this year. A PDC spokesperson points out that qualifying criteria for the Grand Slam of Darts has yet to be set.

As a result, while this could be changed later, it will not be the case right now.

But money will still count towards ProTour Order of Merit and Players Championship Order of Merit.
