Places in the year’s first three European Tour events will be on offer in the Associate Member and Host Nation Qualifiers to be held in Riesa on February 23-24.

Two days of qualifiers will precede the first European Tour event of 2022, with the International Darts Open being held from February 25-27.

Wednesday February 23 will feature the Associate Member Qualifiers for the International Darts Open and the European Tour events to be held in Hildesheim and Munich (ET2 and ET3) from 1100 local time.

The International Darts Open features qualifiers carried over from 2021 (when a third European Tour event was not able to be held), meaning that the seeded players, Tour Card Holder Qualifiers, the European Associate Member Qualifier, PDC Nordic & Baltic Qualifier and East Europe Qualifier are already known.

New PDC Tour Card Holders for 2022 are able to enter the 2022 ET1 Associate Member Qualifier on Wednesday February 23 in Riesa (1100 local time start), with one place on offer in the International Darts Open. This event is also open to Associate Members who did not previously compete in a qualifier for 2021 ET3.

The second and third events are open to PDPA Associate Members who competed in the 2022 PDC Qualifying Schools and will offer two places in ET2 and ET3 respectively.

Those event will then be followed on February 24 by the Host Nation Qualifiers for all three European Tour events, with four places on offer in Riesa and two places each available for Hildesheim and Munich (ET2 and ET3).

Players must enter all events through the PDC Entry System. The entry deadline for all events is 1400 GMT on Tuesday February 22. The entry fee for Host Nation Qualifiers is £105 per event (€125), with a limit of two events per player per year under PDC Rule 4.4.

New players must Register their details at this link. Following your registration, you will receive an email to confirm that you are available to enter tournaments, and at this stage you can login to make your entry to the relevant events. This verification may take up to 48 hours.
