Following the success of the PDC Unicorn Youth Tour in 2011 and 2012, the PDC have expanded the concept to the Challenge Tour in 2013, allowing players aged from 14-25 to compete.
Players can play from the day they turned 14, while players aged 25 or younger on January 1 2013 can enter all tournaments during 2013.
Each PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour weekend will feature three tournaments which will each be worth £3,000 in prize money.
Entry will cost £30 per player per event, and entries will close at 5pm on the Friday immediately before each Challenge Tour weekend.
