After the World Matchplay, the line up for one of the next tournaments on the PDC calendar will be decided in the form of the Champions League of Darts.
Defending champion Mensur Suljovic as well as Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright, Gary Anderson and Daryl Gurney have sealed Order of Merit qualification.
Rob Cross will make his Champions League debut having won the World Championship and qualifying through his ranking.
This means two more spots are up for grabs with the World Matchplay deciding it. Simon Whitlock and Dave Chisnall currently occupy those final two spots.
Michael Smith, James Wade, Ian White, Gerwyn Price and Raymond van Barneveld will be trying to seal qualification with the first two the most likely to do so.
There is a sizeable prize pot on offer for winning at the Winter Gardens; so if a surprise winner is in the offing it could change who qualifies.
