PDC Autumn Series announced and planned to take place in September
The PDC Autumn Series will take place from September 12-16 in Hildesheim, Germany as professional darts continues to return following its four-month hiatus.
After the striking success of the Summer Series in early July, all 128 tour card holders will be given the opportunity of competing in five Players Championship tournaments in an identical format.
Michael van Gerwen, Ryan Joyce, James Wade and Peter Wright reigned victorious at the Summer Series, with £75,000 being on offer on each of the five days.
The Autumn Series will once again see £375,000 on offer throughout the course of the five days, as well as ranking points towards World Grand Prix, Players Championship Finals and World Championship qualification.
A Grand Slam of Darts spot will also be up for grabs for the Autumn Series Order of Merit winner behind closed doors at Halle 39 in Hildesheim.
PDC Chairman Barry Hearn told pdc.tv: “The Summer Series was popular with players and fans alike, so I’m delighted that we’re putting on another block of Players Championship events.
“The tournaments will give all our Tour Card Holders another opportunity to win prize money and qualify for televised events during the unprecedented times we are living in.
“For our fans, the Autumn Series means live darts will return to our screens soon after the block of seven Premier League nights concludes on August 31.
“It was also important for us to arrange tournaments outside of the UK in view of our large number of European Tour Card Holders, so we’re delighted to be hosting the Autumn Series in Germany.
“We would like to give thanks to PDC Europe for their hard work and co-operation in arranging the Autumn Series at the fantastic Halle 39 venue.
“Schedule planning for the rest of the year is an on-going, ever-changing process, but a Winter Series will take place in the UK on dates to be announced.”
The Autumn Series will be broadcast live on PDCTV throughout its duration as well as numerous bookmaker’s websites.
