·2-min read

The three-day invitational event, to be staged at AFAS Live in Amsterdam from September 16-18, will see 24 players competing for £300,000 in prize money. Four-time champion Van Gerwen will be aiming to continue his charge on home soil, having returned to the winner's circle with Cazoo Premier League and Betfred World Matchplay success over recent weeks. Clayton will be bidding to defend the title he claimed 12 months ago, with two other former champions - Gerwyn Price and James Wade - also set to feature in Amsterdam. Last year's runner-up Dimitri Van den Bergh is among the invited PDC representatives, having secured back-to-back World Series titles at the Nordic Darts Masters and Dutch Darts Masters earlier this year.

Reigning World Champion Peter Wright continues his ever-present record in the showcase event, alongside US Darts Masters winner Michael Smith.
