Darts’ unique cross-code event features title holders, finalists and qualifiers from both the PDC and BDO as they battle it out over nine days of round-robin and knock-out action to compete for £550,000 in prize money.
The 32 players are divided into eight groups, with the top two players from each group following the round-robin phase progressing to the knock-out stages.
Gerwyn Price is the defending champion after he defeated Gary Anderson 16-13 in a highly charged final 12 months ago, and the Welsh ace returns as the number five seed.
World number one Michael van Gerwen is bidding for a fourth Grand Slam title since 2015 as he looks to continue his clinical spell of dominance, having won five of his last six televised tournaments.
World Matchplay and European Champion Rob Cross, two-time Grand Slam finalist James Wade, 2018 finalist Gary Anderson, 2017 finalist Peter Wright, Michael Smith and Daryl Gurney make up the other seeded stars.
Despite being a PDC Tour Card Holder, Glen Durrant is representing the BDO as reigning Lakeside Champion, while Ladies World Champion Mikuru Suzuki and Ladies World Master Lisa Ashton make their debuts.
The tournament runs from November 9-17 at the Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton.
In addition to television coverage, all matches are also available to watch live on desktop or mobile devices in selected regions to customers with a funded account.
