European Order of Merit
Below is the final 2013 European Order of Merit, as at October 28 2013 following the Dutch Darts Masters.
The European Order of Merit is comprised of prize money won by European players in the eight European tour events held throughout 2013.
Please note that, as only four European Tour events have been held ahead of the cut-off for the partypoker.net European Championship, ties for prize money in respect of qualification for the European Championship are being separated by a count-back of prize money won per event, based on most recent events first.
NB - In 2014, the European Order of Merit will not be compiled. Qualifiers for the European Championship and World Championship will be taken from the European-based players in the ProTour Order of Merit.
