PDC World Darts Championship 2023/24: What is the format?

Of the 96 players in the championship, 32 qualify by virtue of being the highest-ranked on organisers the Professional Darts Corporation’s (PDC) Order of Merit, and are seeded to the second round.

The next 32 participants consist of the highest-ranked players from the 2023 PDC Pro Tour Order of Merit, with the final 32 qualifying through various international routes.

After first and second-round matches that are best-of-five sets, the third and fourth rounds are best-of-seven.

From the Second round onwards, a tie-break will be employed in all matches in which a deciding set must be won by two clear legs.

If the score in the final set reaches 5-5, a sudden-death leg will be played. There will be no throw for the bull in any sudden-death legs.
