What is a PDC Tour Card?

A tour card is a coveted prize that guarantees free entry into the highest paying tournaments for two full years. Q-School is packed with former tour card holders anxious to regain position, along with hungry newcomers, all vying for a chance to compete on the circuit.

Why PDC Q-School?

PDC Qualifying School is an annual open competition that allows ambitious players from around the world to compete for the right to play in the Players Championship Tour and European Players Tour. These two tours are regarded as the highest level of play in darts.

Q-School is comprised of four one-day events in Germany and four one-day events in England. Twelve two-year tour cards will be awarded to the top performers.  Additional tour cards will be awarded based on how a player’s Q-School performance affects the PDC Order of Merit,  to complete the 128 player field.
