World Champion Gerwyn Price and 2020 Grand Slam winner Jose de Sousa head up the list of 17 players who have already secured qualification for this year's event.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Michael van Gerwen is also among the qualifiers, along with former finalists Peter Wright, James Wade and Gary Anderson.

World Cup runner-up Mensur Suljovic occupies the 12th qualification place ahead of his Austrian teammate Rowby-John Rodriguez by virtue of his higher PDC Order of Merit position.
