This PDC tournament was first played in 2008 and is in some respects unique.
The Top 8 of the PDC Order of Merit play the first league day. It is played first in round robin, all matches best of 11 legs. After the round robin the top four of the day play the semi-finals and the final.
The group winner of the first day advances into the winners group which will be played on the final day of the league in the same way to determine the tournament winner.
The last two of the first days table will be eliminated off the tournament while the remaining five players will return for the next league day supplemented by three new players.
Beside the final day eight league days are played in this way and 29 top players take part in the tournament. The tournament is played in September and October.
The price money is calculated by won legs - during the round robin one gets 50 pounds per leg, in the semi-finals and final 100 pound. At the final day with the group winners the price money is higher - 100 pound per leg during the round robin, 200 pound for semi-final and final.
