The European Tour returns this weekend as the Gibraltar Darts Trophy is on the schedule. Michael Smith will be trying to defend his title that he claimed last year.

Michael Van Gerwen will be at the Gibraltar Darts Trophy this year after withdrawing from the competition last year. This starts another run of European Tour events including a debut in Copenhagen.

James Wade and Stephen Bunting are some of the returning seeds; this is after brilliant form for the pair. Wade in particular qualified for every event before the Gibraltar Darts Trophy so was definitely in form.

The likes of Adrian Lewis, Brendan Dolan & Robert Thornton came through the UK Qualifier. This is alongside the return of Barrie Bates, Mark Dudbridge & Ross Smith who join the line up in Gibraltar.
