Over 650 players set for 2021 PDC Q-School
This year's Q-School is set to be split into first stage and Final Stage and was delayed slightly due to restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The two three-day blocks will take place from February 8-10 and 11-13. Final Stage is then set from February 14-17 with a total of 29 PDC Tour Cards on offer.
The UK Q-School likely due to restrictions and also the likely bubble scenario at the Marshall Arena has attracted only 397 entries with 32 players through to the Final Stage.
The remaining 365 players will be split into 183 and 182 entries respectively for Stage 1A and Stage 1B.
European Q-School wise, it has 271 entries with 18 players exempt. This leaves groups of 127 and 126 players in the two groups for the First Stage.
Each venue will produce four players on each day to join those in the Final Stage with an Order of Merit system used to define the remaining 72 (UK) and 86 (Europe) players through.
The entry lists for both Q-Schools and the different entry blocks will be revealed on Tuesday (January 19) after a random draw is completed.
