Reigning champion Jose de Sousa and World Champion Gerwyn Price will headline the 32-player field.

Finalists from the PDC’s televised events over a 12-month period will qualify for up to 16 places in the Grand Slam, with ten of those spots already occupied with four tournaments remaining.

Premier League and Masters champion Jonny Clayton, World Matchplay winner Peter Wright, UK Open champion James Wade, and Players Championship Finals winner Michael van Gerwen have all won televised events in the qualifying period.
