The draw for the ninth PDC Players Championship event of the season has been confirmed, with 128 players in 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 April 6-7.

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.

With reigning World Champion Michael van Gerwen opting to skip this weekend's events, his close rivals will be aiming to cash in and claim their first title of the season.

Gary Anderson, Daryl Gurney and Gerwyn Price have also pulled out, but fellow Premier League stars Rob Cross, Peter Wright, Michael Smith, Mensur Suljovic, James Wade and Raymond van Barneveld all feature.

Three-time BDO World Champion Glen Durrant, two-time PDC World Champion Adrian Lewis and Dave Chisnall will be aiming to add to their title tallies, while the likes of Ian White and Joe Cullen also look to make their mark.

Former World Youth Champion Corey Cadby makes his return to PDC ranking action for the first time in 12 months after being sidelined due to visa complications.

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.
