The European Championship is a PDC darts tournament featuring the top 32 players on the European Tour Order of Merit at the Ethias Arena in Hasselt, Belgium.

Introduced to the darts calendar in 2008, Phil Taylor won each of the first four stagings of the 32-man event before Simon Whitlock bucked the trend by claiming glory in 2012.

Whitlock reached the final the following year, when he was beaten by Adrian Lewis, while the last three editions of the tournament have been won by Michael van Gerwen.

The 2017 event will be held from October 26-29 at the Ethias Arena in Hasselt, Belgium - the tournament's home since 2015 - with the top 32 players on the European Tour Order of Merit battling it out for the top prize of £100,000.

Only prize money won during the 12 European Tour events on the calendar count towards a player's ranking, so every single dart counts right down to the final event just over a week before the grand finale.

Runaway world number one Van Gerwen is the defending champion following an emphatic 11-1 rout of Mensur Suljovic in last year's final, and he will be aiming to emulate Taylor's four titles on the bounce.
