The eight players who will compete in the 2019 Paddy Power Champions League of Darts have been confirmed.

Six players were already assured of their places in the event heading into the World Matchplay and results from the event have now ensured that Gerwyn Price and James Wade will take to the stage at the Morningside Arena in Leicester from October 19-20.

For Wade it will be a second appearance in the BBC broadcast tournament since his semi-final berth at the inaugural 2016 staging of the event, while Price will make his debut this year.

The players are split into two groups of four for the round-robin stage of the event, based on PDC Order of Merit positions following the World Matchplay.

The opening three sessions in Leicester see the players in each group meet once, before the top two from each group progress to the semi-finals and final on Sunday evening.
