The International Darts Open is the traditional event in the new German states. For the sixth time already a European Tour Event takes place at the SACHSENarena.

Thanks to an innovative hygiene and prevention concept, darts fans in Saxony can experience the best darts players in the world live this year as well.

In the entire venue (except at the seat) masks will be mandatory and immediately after the admission the hands must be disinfected. In addition, carnival costumes and fan chants should be avoided.

At each European Tour event £140.000 (approx. 160.000 EUR) will be played for and the prize money will be included in the European Order of Merit. The 32 best players in this ranking will qualify for the European Darts Championship 2020.

The field of participants of a European Tour event includes 48 players. The top 16 players of the Pro Tour rankings are seeded and enter the tournament in the second round. The other 32 places are played for in various qualifying tournaments. The 32 qualifiers determine the opponents of the top 16 in the first round. The draw for a European Tour event always takes place one day before the event.
