Ahead of the new PDC season, we take a look at the 128 PDC Tour Card holders who will be playing on the tour from this year onwards.
This is lead in the Top 64 by Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright in the form of the world number one and number two. Matthew Edgar, Toni Alcinas and Simon Stevenson round out the top 64. This is due to Corey Cadby and Raymond van Barneveld deciding against playing on the circuit from this season onwards.
The likes of Harry Ward, Ted Evetts and Mark McGeeney will have the pressure of heading into the final year of their Tour Card cycle. Then we will get Callan Rydz, Jesus Noguera, Ryan Meikle and Ciaran Teehan involved from the Challenge Tour and Development Tour who won their Tour Cards through there. This is followed by this years Tour Card holders with more Dutchman being added to the list from the European Q-School.
As well as another Austrian in Harald Leitinger, a Croatian in Boris Krcmar, another Polish player in Krzysztof Kciuk and a Swede in Daniel Larsson. As well as a return of a Hong Kong player to the tour in the form of Kai Fan Leung. Overall there are 60 English Tour Card holders including the returns of the likes of Andy Hamilton and Steve Brown
There are 19 Dutchman following next; as well as 6 Scotsman and 6 Welshman. This shows that in the case of the Dutchman, despite Raymond van Barneveld retiring there are still more players returning or coming through in the case of Dirk van Duijvenbode and Wesley Harms among others.
