Four Players Championship events will be staged in Super Series 5 as the final qualifying tournaments ahead of the cut-off for the Betfred World Matchplay.
The events had originally been planned to be staged at the University of Bolton Stadium, however following the recent rise in Covid-19 cases in the Bolton area, the PDC have moved Super Series 5 to Coventry with new dates of July 5-8.
If you are in the WMP or could potentially still qualify please note the following. There will be no bubble at the World Matchplay, so it will not be possible for the PDC to issue any sort of quarantine exemption letter for non-UK players/support staff for this event.
Therefore, our recommendation to any affected player(s) is that you remain in the UK following the Coventry Super Series. There will be no restriction on where you can stay for the World Matchplay and currently it is planned for all to be Lateral Flow tested on your first day of play, this is obviously subject to possible change.
The current WMP race table is here https://www.pdpa.co.uk/pdc/wm-race-table/ with the PDC Super Series four PC events to add,

The PDC will be doing Lateral Flow Testing from 09.00, UK based players will be allocated a time, any non UK players/managers need to contact Graham Fairhurst firstname.lastname@example.org and inform him of your expected arrival so a time slot can be allocated.
