As the finalists of the European Championship were both already guaranteed qualification for the Grand Slam, Steve Lennon and William O'Connor's places in Wolverhampton are now safe.

The Republic of Ireland's World Cup runners-up have take the 13th and 14th PDC Qualifier places, meaning just two more PDC Qualifier spots are up for grabs.

The places are currently occupied by Ian White and Mensur Suljovic, the highest ranked European Tour event winners not to have already qualified.

If the finalists of the Jack's Casino World Series of Darts Finals are both already guaranteed qualification in the Grand Slam then both White and Suljovic will qualify.
