PDC European Tour 2020
European Tour 2020:
The qualification structure for the PDC European Tour has been confirmed for 2020 ahead of the widest-reaching season of events since the series was introduced.
A total of 13 European Tour events are set to take place during 2020, including visits to Belgium and Hungary for the first time alongside tournaments in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, the Czech Republic and Gibraltar. As in recent years, each event will feature 48 players and sees the top 16 players from the ProTour Order of Merit seeded through to the second round.
PDC Tour Card Holders will now compete in one combined qualifier for a total of 24 places in the tournament, having previously been split into UK and European Qualifiers. The top two ranked players from each Host Nation will also qualify by right, where applicable, as two of four players representing each Host Nation.
Further qualifiers will come from the PDC Nordic & Baltic and East Europe regions (one place per tournament), with two places reserved for an Associate Member Qualifier, which will be open to players who competed at the 2020 PDC Qualifying School but did not win a Tour Card.
- 16 Seeds
- 24 Tour Card Holders
- 2 Top Ranked Players From The Host Nation

All Tour Card Holders can only enter each European Tour event via their ‘SportRadar’ account prior to the entry deadline date/time specified.
Associate Members and Day Members, must enter via ‘PDC Europe’ on the specified deadline date, usually two days prior to the main event.
The Top 16 players from the PTOoM Table who have entered will be the 16 seeds.

If any of these places are not taken up by the relevant Host Nation players by virtue of not being ranked, these places will go direct to the Host Nation Qualifier.
