First, the top-16 of the Pro Tour Order of Merit will receive an invitation. They have a bye in the first round and enter from the second round. New starting this season is that the top-16 of the overall world ranking list also receive an invitation. They do have to start from the first round. However, for both groups, they must win their opening match at the European Darts Open in order for the prize money to count toward the world ranking.

The remaining sixteen participants in Leverkusen are winners from the various qualifying tournaments. Regardless of the result these players achieve, they will get the prize money added to the ranking anyway. They will receive at least 1250 pounds in starting money. Upon reaching the second round, the prize money rises to 2,500 pounds. So the top-16 on the seedings list will get this amount anyway, but they still have to win a match to get it added to the world rankings as well. Making it to the third round is good for £4,000, while quarter-finalists go home with £6,000 anyway. Semi-finalists will get at least £8500 before the rewards go into the five numbers for reaching the final. For the runner-up at the European Darts Open, a sum of 12,000 pounds awaits. The winner of this Euro Tour tournament goes home with £30,000.

The European Darts Open is one of the longest running Euro Tour tournaments. The first edition was played back in 2012, when it was won by Raymond van Barneveld. Michael van Gerwen is the record winner of this tournament with five titles. In 2023, this event was won by Gerwyn Price, who was too strong for Dirk van Duijvenbode in the final 8-7.
