The Coral UK Open is a PDC tournament featuring 128 players competing for £300,000 in prize money at the Butlins Minehead Resort.
The tournament has the nickname, the "FA Cup of darts", because of the wide mix of players of differing experience. There are also no seedings for the top players which means the top players can be drawn against each other at any stage.
As with the FA Cup, a random draw takes place after each round to determine the matches for the following round.
The UK Open was held at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton from 2003-2013 and shown on Sky Sports, before being relocated to Minehead in 2014 and televised live on ITV4.
The tournament has featured 19 different finalists in its 13-year history, with Phil Taylor having won the title on five previous occasions and Michael van Gerwen, James Wade and Raymond van Barneveld also multiple champions.
