Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts

The 32-player event will be held from November 13-21 and returns to Wolverhampton this year, with tickets now on general sale through Ticketmaster.

Reigning champion Jose de Sousa and World Champion Gerwyn Price – who also won back-to-back Grand Slam titles at the Aldersley Leisure Village in 2018-2019 – 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.

In addition, Gary Anderson, Dimitri Van den Bergh, Mervyn King and Luke Humphries have reached TV finals in the past 12 months.

The World Cup of Darts, World Grand Prix, European Championship and World Series of Darts Finals remain as televised events for players to qualify for the Grand Slam.

Should the 16 places not be filled from the televised events, winners from the PDC’s 2021 European Tour and then Players Championship events could secure their spots in the Grand Slam.

A further eight players will come through the PDC Tour Card Holder Qualifier, which will be held on November 5, with eight additional qualifiers completing the field.

2020 World Youth Champion Bradley Brooks and runner-up Joe Davis will be joined by the winners from the UK and European Challenge and Development Tour Orders of Merit, as well as two Women’s Series qualifiers.

Tickets for the Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts are available through Ticketmaster.
