Prize money breakdown 2022 PDC Challenge Tour with £240,000 on offer
Due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the PDC decided last season to do a separate Challenge Tour for players from the UK and one for players from continental Europe. This year, the two tours have been merged as usual.
From reaching the last 64, players can earn prize money, starting at £50. That amount then increases with each round. The winner will receive a nice sum of £2,000.
The Challenge Tour ranking is based on the prize money earned. At the end of the season the numbers one and two receive an invitation to the PDC World Darts Championship, plus a Tour Card for 2023 and 2024.
There is also another reward for players who do well. The top of the Order of Merit gets a chance to play as a reserve player in the Players Championship tournaments on the PDC Pro Tour. When a Tour Card holder doesn't sign up or cancels, the highest ranked player on the Challenge Tour Order of Merit can fill in.
