The UK Open returns bigger and better than ever in 2019 with 159 players competing for a record prize fund across three days of frenetic action in Minehead.

All 128 Tour Card Holders, excluding Corey Cadby, will compete in the Ladbrokes UK Open, with the field complemented by 16 amateur qualifiers and 16 qualifiers from the 2018 PDC Challenge Tour Order of Merit.

The unique open draw format will remain in place, with the Tour Card Holders being exempt from the early rounds based on their PDC ranking.

Play will again be across eight stages simultaneously at the Butlin's Minehead Resort from March 1-3, with the action culminating with the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final on the main stage on Sunday.

The top prize has increased to a record £100,000, with a total prize fund of £450,000 on offer and being paid down to the last 96.

Reigning champion Gary Anderson is making his return from injury as he takes to the big stage for the first time this season, while world number one and World Champion Michael van Gerwen is bidding for a third UK Open title.
