The event, in its second staging, will feature a number of top players hoping to turn professional and make an impression on the world stage.

Notable entrants include former Vegas Desert Classic champion Peter Manley, world finalist Alan Warriner-Little, Chris Mason, Andy Jenkins and 1996 World Matchplay winner Peter Evison. Former BDO world champion Andy Fordham has also confirmed his attendance in the event.

A number of BDO players have thrown their hat in the ring at the chance of PDC stardom, including 2011 Lakeside runner-up Dean Winstanley, the West brothers - Steve and Tony, as well as young star Jerry Hendriks.

Youth stars seeking to become full-time professionals by winning through include - Gino Vos, Co Stompe JNR, Brandon Walsh and Chris Aubrey.

Tour cards will be awarded to the Semi-Finalists from each day, with a tournament played each day from Thursday January 19 to Sunday January 22.

In addition to this, ranking points will be allocated depending on finishing positions in each event, culminating in a final ranking list from which further players will be awarded Tour Cards.

The PDC confirmed that the four Lakeside Semi-Finalists would be offered two-year tour cards should they wish to make the switch from BDO to PDC.

Ted Hankey has announced he will be plying his trade in the PDC, after playing his last game at Frimley Green last week. His Semi-Final appearance means he will not be required to attend Q School and will be a regular on the Pro Tour in 2012.

Popular thrower Wayne Mardle will not be entering the four-day event, as he has decided to focus on punditry commitments.

Entries are open to any darts player and must be registered before 12pm on Wednesday along with a £200 entry fee.
