The race to secure places in the 2020 European Championship culminates at the International Open this weekend.

The 32-man field for the prestigious tournament will be confirmed on Sunday following the season’s fourth and final European Tour event in Riesa.

This year’s European Championship will take place in front of a limited capacity crowd in Oberhausen, Germany, from October 29 to November 1.

A reduced schedule of European Tour events from 13 to four this year means a host of players remain in the running to qualify for the European Championship heading into the cut-off weekend.

As it stands, Gerwyn Price is set to be seeded number one, ahead of last week’s European Grand Prix winner Jose De Sousa.

Four-time European Champion Michael van Gerwen is also assured of a place in Oberhausen, alongside fellow Premier League stars Nathan Aspinall, Michael Smith and Glen Durrant.

Reigning European Champion Rob Cross is also safe, as is former champion James Wade, World Champion Peter Wright and Poland’s Krzysztof Ratajski.

Five players are tied on £4,000 in the final five provisional places, though Jeffrey de Zwaan, Scott Waites, William O’Connor and Kim Huybrechts have failed to qualify for the International Open.

The likes of Dave Chisnall, Daryl Gurney and Max Hopp are all looking over their shoulders going into the International Open this weekend.
