The scramble to secure places in the 2020 World Grand Prix culminates at the German Darts Championship this weekend.

The 32-man field for the prestigious double-start tournament will be confirmed on Sunday following the season’s second European Tour event in Hildesheim.

This year’s World Grand Prix will take place behind closed doors at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry from July October 6-12.

It will be the first time the World Grand Prix has not been staged at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin since 2000.

The field will be comprised of the top 16 players from the main Order of Merit, as well as the next highest 16 players from the ProTour Order of Merit.

The top eight players in the main Order of Merit will be seeded in the First Round draw.

Heading into the German Championship several places remain up for grabs, with a number of players set to make their debut in the double-in, double-out event.

Madars Razma currrently occupies the 16th and final qualification spot via the ProTour Order of Merit, but is not in action this weekend and therefore faces a nervous wait.

Former finalist Mervyn King, who has appeared in the Grand Prix for 13 years consecutively, is just £1,000 adrift of Razma, as is Welsh ace Jonny Clayton.

Canada’s Jeff Smith must reach at least the Quarter-Final stage if he is to secure a Grand Prix debut, while Irish duo Steve Lennon and William O’Connor must reach the Semi-Finals and final respectively.

Chris Dobey, who narrowly missed out on July’s World Matchplay, is level with Razma on £17,500, as is Dutch star Jeffrey De Zwaan.

Dirk van Duijvenbode and Kim Huybrechts also have destiny in their own hands as they head to Hildesheim in a bid to consolidate their Grand Prix berths.
