A total of 96 professionals secured their spots from the UK Open Order of Merit following the six UK Open Qualifiers and are joined by 32 Rileys Amateur Qualifiers who came through knockouts staged across the UK.

The unique tournament, affectionately known as 'The FA Cup of Darts' sees play held across multiple stages simultaneously in the early rounds, while the open draw can see top names pitted against each other at any stage.

The top 32 players from the UK Open Order of Merit will enter the £350,000 tournament in the Third Round on Friday evening.

Peter Wright is the defending champion after he defeated Gerwyn Price 11-6 in last year's final, and 'Snakebite' is looking to reach the final here for the fourth consecutive year.

Two-time champion Michael van Gerwen will be keen to make up for lost time after missing last year's UK Open due to injury, while 2014 champion Adrian Lewis is also out to restore former glories.

Seeded players who will enter at the Third Round stage also include Rob Cross, Gary Anderson, Michael Smith, Daryl Gurney and exciting debutants Corey Cadby and Krzysztof Ratajski.

James Wade, Steve Beaton, Alex Roy, Wayne Jones and Terry Jenkins are the only ever-presents in this prestigious tournament since it began in Bolton 15 years ago.

The tournament runs from March 2-4 at the Butlins Minehead Resort, with all First and Second Round ties to be contested over the best of 11 legs, Third, Fourth and Fifth Round best of 19, Quarter-Finals and Semi-Finals best of 19 and the Final best of 21 legs.
