PDC Ranking

The PDC rankings are all price money rankings - the PDC changed the ranking system in 2007 respectively. In all tournaments - whether Major or Pro Tour event - the players can win prize money according to their placing. The highest prize money is on offer in the World Championship, the lowest in the Pro Tour events.

All prize money won in the ranking tournaments flows into the PDC Order of Merit. The Premier League and the Grand Slam both are invitation tournaments and the prize money doesn't count to the ranking. The current Top 16 of the Order of Merit are automatically qualified for all PDC Major tournaments. Exceptions again are the Premier League and Grand Slam. To Premiere League only the Top 4 of the Order of Merit + 6 Wildcards are invited. To the Grand Slam predominantley winners and runner-ups of Major tournaments of the PDC and the BDO are invited.
The Order of Merit is a two year ranking meaning that over the year each time the prize money which was won by the players two years ago in the same tournament will be discarded.

Beside the Order of Merit the Pro Tour Order of Merit is the most important PDC ranking as the starting field of the Major tournaments is filled up with players from this ranking who are not otherwise qualified. Beside this the Top 32 of this ranking will play in the Players Championship final.
The Pro Tour Order of Merit is a one year ranking meaning that over the year each time the prize money which was won by the players one years ago in the same tournament will be discarded. Thus the Pro Tour Order of Merit provides information about the current form of the players.

To the UK Open Order of Merit only the money won in the UK Open qualifiers counts. The Top 96 are qualified for the UK Open. The UK Open Order of Merit starts afresh every year.

To the Scandinavian Order of Merit only counts the prize money won on the Scandinavian Tour of the SDC. By the Scandinavian Order of Merit players from Scandinavia can qualify for the European Championship and the PDC Wolrd Championship. The Scandinavian Order of Merit starts afresh every year.

Since 2011 there exists a Youth Order of Merit, to which all money won on the PDC Youth Tour counts. The PDC Youth Tour started in 2011. The top twenty will play together with international qualifiers in the PDC Youth World Championship. The player on top of the table gets a place in the Grand Slam of darts and in the preliminary round ot the PDC World Championship.

In 2014 the Challenge Tour was launched for PDPA Associate members. Those are players who took part in the Qualifying Tour but failed to win a Tour Card. The two players heading the Challenge Tour Order of Merit at the end of the season will get a two years Tour Card.

The Challenge Tour and the Youth Tour together are the PDC Developing Tour. Both Rankings start afresh every year.

2016 the European Tour Order of Merit was again intriduced. Only price moeney earned in European Tour events counts for the ranking by which the participants of the European Championship qualify. The top 32 of this ranking will take part in the tournament.
