Qualification and format

The top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 21 September automatically qualified for the event and were seeded in the second round.

The remaining 32 places went to players from five qualifying events - 18 from the UK Qualifier (held in Dublin on 28 September), eight from the West/South European Qualifier (held on 21 September), four from the Host Nation Qualifier (held on 12 October), one from the Nordic & Baltic Qualifier (held on 12 August) and one from the East European Qualifier (held on 27 August).

Mensur Suljović withdrew prior to the start of the tournament for family reasons. As he was a seeded player, all seeds from 7–16 moved up one place, with the highest-ranked qualifier, Stephen Bunting, being assigned as the 16th seed. An extra Host Nation Qualifier was made available as a result.[1]
