Dart players from around the world travel to Germany and the UK in January to compete for a professional tour card to become a member of the exclusive group of 128 players who compete throughout the year in the Player’s Championship Tour and European Player’s Tour.
During the 2018 Q-Schools, 33 players earned tour cards, determined by performance at these two events.
The PDC and DartConnect will be providing live scoreboards on DartConnect TV for every match of this dramatic competition.
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.
