2024 Baltic Sea Darts Open: Schedule, format, players, prize money and where to watch

The PDC European Tour returns this weekend as the tungsten circus heads to Kiel, Germany for the 2024 Baltic Sea Darts Open.

Luke Littler is flying in the Premier League and he isn’t taking his foot off the gas when it comes to continental darts either.

The 17-year-old won the Austrian Darts Open a fortnight ago and will be looking for his third European Tour crown in Kiel.

The remaining 47 players in this weekend’s tournament will be looking to stop the rampant teenager.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the Baltic Sea Darts Open, including the schedule, format, qualified players, prize money and where to watch.


Schedule and format

The first round of the event begins on Friday (May 10) as the first 32 players enter the tournament.

Winners of those games will progress to the second round where they will meet the top 16 ranked PDC stars.

Second round matches will take place on Saturday (May 11) while the rest of the tournament will play out on Sunday (May 12).

First, second and third round games will be contested in a best of 11 legs format. That will continue in the quarter-finals.

Matches will be played in a best of 13 legs in the semi-finals and best of 15 in the final.
