The draw for the 20th PDC Players Championship event of the season has been confirmed, with 128 players returning to action in Barnsley.

The pair of £75,000 live-streamed floor tournaments will feature a star-studded field of 128 players battling it out at the Barnsley Metrodome from July 16-17.

Prize money acquired will count towards both the ProTour Order of Merit and the Main Order of Merit, with a £10,000 top prize up for grabs on both days.

For many, the events represent a final warm-up for the 2019 World Matchplay, which gets underway in Blackpool on Saturday.

World number one Michael van Gerwen is absent from both events, but a formidable field will lock horns, headed by reigning World Matchplay champion Gary Anderson, world number two Rob Cross and German Masters winner Peter Wright. 

Grand Slam champion Gerwyn Price, world finalist Michael Smith, US Masters champion Nathan Aspinall, Lakeside Champion Glen Durrant and multiple Euro Tour event winner Ian White are among the other notable front-runners.

Play commences from 12pm BST, with all matches from Round One to the Quarter-Finals contested over the best of 11 legs, Semi-Finals best of 13 and the final best of 15.

Selected matches from two boards are streamed exclusively live online with commentary throughout the day.
