THE 2018 bwin World Series of Darts Finals will feature the six winners of this year's global events alongside players from around the world and four qualifiers.
Vienna's Multiversum will host the World Series of Darts Finals from November 2-4 as a 24-player field competes for a £250,000 prize fund. The top eight players from the World Series Order of Merit following the year's six global events qualify by right.
That means reigning champion Michael van Gerwen - a winner in Auckland this year - qualifies alongside fellow 2018 champions Peter Wright, Rob Cross, Gary Anderson, Michael Smith and Mensur Suljovic.
In addition, Raymond van Barneveld and Simon Whitlock also qualify from the World Series Order of Merit. The top four non-qualified players from the PDC Order of Merit following October's World Grand Prix will also compete in Vienna, alongside a further eight invited players from the World Series Order of Merit.
The final four places in the 24-player field will be taken by players in the PDC Tour Card Holders' Qualifier in Barnsley on Friday October 19. "The World Series of Darts tour was more open than ever in 2018 with six different winners from our worldwide events, and our end-of-season Finals promises to be a fabulous weekend,"said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
