The Players Championship events are known as having the first to six format throughout the whole events previously but like the European Tour in 2018 this has now been changed for the latter stages.

ProTour events at the various venues in 2019 will have an extended format with the semi-finals being best of 13 and the final best of 15 it has been revealed.
This coincides with a rise to prize money for this year meaning there will be more darts and more money on offer to the players involved.
It remains to be seen whether this will help the more experienced players or whether there will be more first time winners this year.
