Big names from both sides of the darting divide head to Wolverhampton for the 2019 Grand Slam, and you can follow all the latest results, group tables and fixtures here.
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 has been placed into Group C alongside reigning Ladies World Champion Mikuru Suzuki, Tour Card holder qualifier Robert Thornton and World Youth Champion Dimitri van den Bergh.
World number one Michael van Gerwen, who won the title consecutively between 2015 and 2017, begins his quest for a fourth Grand Slam success in Group A alongside World Trophy winner Jim Williams and Tour Card Holder qualifiers Adrian Lewis and Ross Smith.
Anderson, the 2018 runner-up, returns to Wolverhampton in pursuit of a maiden Grand Slam title and is situated in Group D with Darren Webster, William O’Connor and Dave Parletti.
World Matchplay champion Rob Cross heads up a formidable Group E which also houses World Grand Prix runner-up Dave Chisnall, Czech Open champion Jamie Hughes and women’s World Masters champion and world number one – Lisa Ashton.
Group H, arguably ‘The Group of Death’, features World Championship finalist Michael Smith, UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall, BDO World Champion Glen Durrant and 2018 World Youth finalist Martin Schindler.
Two-time finalist James Wade is placed in Group B alongside European Tour event winner Ian White, World Cup finalist Steve Lennon and BDO star Wesley Harms.
Group F sees 2017 finalist Peter Wright take on World Series finalist Danny Noppert and debutant duo Ryan Harrington and Wayne Warren.
Players Champion Daryl Gurney heads up Group G and will face former Grand Prix finalist Brendan Dolan, German number two Gabriel Clemens and BDO star Richard Veenstra.
The tournament runs from November 9-17 at the Aldersley Leisure Village, Wolverhampton.
Group matches are to be contested over the best of nine legs, with Second Round ties best of 19 and the Quarter-Finals, Semis and Final best of 31 legs.
