The World Matchplay draw will take place at 7pm UK time on Thursday July 5. The draw will be streamed live on the PDC Facebook page.
Six players will make their World Matchplay debuts at the Winter Gardens later this month, while Michael van Gerwen will be the top seed for the prestigious 32-player event.
The 25th staging of the World Matchplay at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens will be held from July 21-29, as players compete for “The Phil Taylor Trophy” after the renaming of the honour following the 16-time champion’s retirement.
