The PDC representatives in the 2019 World Series of Darts have been confirmed, with Nathan Aspinall set to make his debut.

The World Series will touch down in Las Vegas, Cologne, Brisbane, Melbourne and Hamilton this summer as a star-studded field battles it out for the right to feature in November's finals in Amsterdam.

Each two-day event will feature eight seeded PDC stars alongside a series of local qualifiers.

UK Open champion and World Championship semi-finalist Aspinall will make his first appearance in a World Series event at the US Masters in Las Vegas in July.

Aspinall will join reigning champion Gary Anderson, World Champion Michael van Gerwen and Premier League stars Rob Cross, Daryl Gurney, Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price and Michael Smith competing at the Mandalay Bay from July 4-5.

The US Darts Masters - the first of the year's five international events on the World Series of Darts circuit - will also feature eight North American players following qualifying events on July 2-3.

Mensur Suljovic will defend his title at the German Darts Masters on July 12-13 as the sport's top stars return to Europe for the third staging of that event.

Five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld and reigning European Champion James Wade will join Van Gerwen, Cross, Anderson, Gurney and Wright in competing at the LANXESS Arena in Cologne.

Those eight PDC stars will take on eight leading German aces, with the World Cup pairing of Max Hopp and Martin Schindler to be joined by German Superleague qualifiers Gabriel Clemens, Nico Kurz, Kevin Munch, Robert Marijanovic, Christian Bunse and Maik Langendorf.

The World Series will continue with an Oceanic treble-header in August as the leading players in the sport return Down Under.

Cross will defend the Brisbane Masters title from August 9-10 as the BCEC plays host to the World Series of Darts for a second successive year.

The Melbourne Darts Masters, held at The Melbourne Arena from August 16-17, will then see Wright aiming to defend the title he claimed 12 months ago.

That pair will be joined in all three of August's events by Van Gerwen, Anderson and Gurney as well as the Australian trio of Simon Whitlock, Kyle Anderson and Corey Cadby.

In addition, top New Zealander Cody Harris has been invited to compete in the NZ Darts Masters, with Hamilton's Claudelands Arena hosting the World Series of Darts for the first time from August 23-24.

Further competitors for the events in Brisbane, Melbourne and Hamilton will be confirmed in due course, with other leading PDC players set to be joined by qualifiers from Australia and New Zealand.
