The 12th of 13 live-streamed Euro Tour events this season will feature 48 players battling it out for the £25,000 title at the SACHSENarena in Riesa, Germany.
The field is comprised of the top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit (seeded through to the Second Round) plus a further 18 UK Qualifiers, six European qualifiers, two West & South European qualifiers, four Host Nation qualifiers, one Nordic & Baltic qualifier and one East European qualifier.
The race to secure places in October’s European Championship intensifies as those currently below the cut-off look to embark on a strong run in Riesa.
Gerwyn Price is the defending champion after he defeated Simon Whitlock 8-3 in last year’s final.
Michael van Gerwen’s withdrawal means that Ian White is seeded number one ahead of Price, Daryl Gurney, Peter Wright and Adrian Lewis.
Other seeded stars include Rob Cross, Nathan Aspinall, Glen Durrant and Jamie Hughes, while John Henderson, Dimitri van den Bergh, Jelle Klaasen and Kyle Anderson are among the notable qualifiers.
The tournament runs from September 13-15 and is streamed exclusively live on desktop or mobile devices to fans in the UK and various other regions.
