Also, the Q-School has been cut into two phases. During the first phase from Jan. 8 through Jan. 10, players will compete for a spot in the final phase, where there is room for a total of 128 players at each playing venue. Players who lost their Tour Card after 2023 and are in the top-16 of the Challenge Tour Order of Merit and/or Development Tour Order of Merit are immediately admitted to the finals phase.
The Tour Cards are only distributed during the final stage. The final phase consists of four tournament days, with each day winner receiving a PDC Tour Card. The remaining Tour Cards will be distributed via the Q-School Order of Merit.
Participation in the Q-School costs £475. Registration can be via this link until Thursday, January 4 at 3 p.m.
