The draw for the fifth and final PDC Winter Series event has been confirmed, with 128 players competing in Coventry.

A total of 128 players are in action at the Ricoh Arena, with PDC Tour Card holders joined by several Associate Members.

The PDC Winter Series, which takes place from November 10-14, will feature ranked Players Championship events on five consecutive days.

As with all previous Players Championship events, prize money will stand at £75,000 per event, with all winnings counting towards the PDC Order of Merit, ProTour Order of Merit and Players Championship Order of Merit.

In addition, the winner of the Winter Series Order of Merit – based on prize money won across the five days – will qualify for next week’s Boylesports Grand Slam of Darts.

Following the final PDC Winter Series event on Saturday, the top 64 players on the Players Championship Order of Merit will form the field for Players Championship Finals later this month.

World number one Michael van Gerwen and reigning World Champion Peter Wright head the field, while Premier League champion Glen Durrant and fellow box office stars Nathan Aspinall and Michael Smith are also in action.

World Matchplay champion Dimitri van den Bergh, former World Champions Adrian Lewis and Rob Cross, Polish ace Krzysztof Ratajski and Portugal’s Jose De Sousa also feature.

Play commences at 2pm GMT, with all matches up to and including the Quarter-Finals to be contested over the best of 11 legs, while Semi-Finals are best of 13 and the final is best of 15.

Matches from two streaming boards available to watch exclusively live on desktop and mobile in the UK and various other regions.
