The last PDC event of the year before the World Championship takes place is coming up this weekend in the form of the Players Championship Finals in Minehead.

With the draw complete, the schedule has also been released ahead of it. Like usual at Minehead there will be two stages with PDC-TV HD showing coverage from Stage Two.
It all kicks off on Friday with a Double Dutch battle between Jeffrey de Zwaan and Jelle Klaasen. Among the other players on the main stage on the opening session include Adrian Lewis, James Wade and Daryl Gurney.
Then the likes of Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright, Rob Cross and Gary Anderson take to the stage in the evening.
The draw and schedule has already been completed for the second round meaning it is already known who will play on the main stage then.
