Group B, meanwhile, features former UK Open champion Peter Wright, World Champion Rob Cross, reigning Champions League winner Mensur Suljovic and former European Championship winner Simon Whitlock.

The opening fixtures in the afternoon session on Saturday September 22 will be headlined by the big-name tie between Sussex-based World Champion Cross and reigning Champions League winner Suljovic, who open the event.

Colourful former UK Open champion Wright will meet Australian Simon Whitlock, a Champions League debutant, in the other Group B tie.

2017 Champions League runner-up Anderson then plays Daryl Gurney in the opening Group A fixture, before Van Gerwen opens his challenge against Chisnall.

Cross is 7/1 to take glory in his maiden Champions League campaign, with Wright at 15/2, Suljovic a 10/1 chance to retain his title, Chisnall at 25/1 and both Gurney and Whitlock the outsiders at 33/1.
