New qualification system will apparently be introduced for 2020.

They'll always mess about with it until it's right I think haha

I saw that earlier but wasn't sure - the PDC have now confirmed it though

The only difference I can see is the Associate spots look to be from both QSchools, not just the Euro one that Dartsnews would imply

In theory, but pratically I can't see many UK associates turn up to the qualifier, if that is still hold on the day before the Euro Tour.

Well maybe Uncle Barry got some bad press from the Euros where no Germans were playing so have decided to shoehorn them in to the Euros as Hopp and Clemens will be guaranteed in every German tournament on the Euro Tour. I mean yeah they'll have to do a bit of work to get in the Euros but it's the Headshaker World Series all over again

Yeah that's a bit too much, I agree. Probably I would have kept the same system of them entering the European qualifiers and reduced the HNQs to 2 players. I'd be okay with them getting a pass to 2-3 events but 7? It works right with other countries, (like the Belgian event would be pretty pointless without having Dimitri and Kim Huybrechts in there) but for it to work, the Euro Tour events should be distributed more evenly.

No, they gave the Danish event 2 years so clearly it's not working or they couldn't find a suitable venue. In short, they've retained 7 German Events with Saarbrucken and Mannheim making way for Trier and Jena, the Dutch event moving from Zwolle to Leeuwarden, the second Austrian event in Schwechat is getting replaced by the Belgian one in Hasselt and the Copenhagen event in Denmark getting replaced by the Budapest in Hungary. Good to see they are changing it as from 2015-2018 it was for the most part untouched

The following Tour Card Holders have not entered the ET1 Tour Card Holder Qualifier: Gary Anderson, Kyle Anderson, Martin Atkins, Dave Chisnall, Marko Kantele, Darius Labanauskas, Daniel Larsson, Adrian Lewis

The following Tour Card Holders have not entered the ET2 Tour Card Holder Qualifier: Gary Anderson, Kyle Anderson, Andy Hamilton, Daniel Larsson (Larsson has already qualified for the tournament as a Nordic & Baltic Qualifier)


EDIT: meant to add Huybrechts and Dancing Dimi won't need to play in the ET1 qualifier as they have already qualified under the new top ranked host nation players rule (although they will need to win their first round games for the money to count on the OOM), and similarly Hopp and Clemens won't need to play the ET2 qualifier.

Associate Member qualifiers are going to be a crap shoot...however I'm fine with it. I don't really see why non tour card holders should be on
