THERE will be a record entry of over 190 players for the 2019 US Darts Masters and North American Championship Qualifiers in Las Vegas next week.

The PDC's World Series of Darts returns to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, with two days of qualifying on July 2-3 preceding the stage events on July 4-5.

Eight places are on offer in the stage events, with each winner of the four qualifying events being joined by the top four players from the Qualifiers Order of Merit.

A total of 191 players have entered across the four qualifying tournaments, with interest building year-on-year since the World Series of Darts first visited Las Vegas in 2017.

This year's entrants are headlined by three-time World Champion John Part, 1994 World Matchplay winner Larry Butler, current PDC Tour Card Holder Dawson Murschell and reigning North American Darts Champion Jeff Smith.

Recent BetVictor World Cup of Darts representatives Jim Long (Canada), Darin Young and Chuck Puleo (both USA) will also be in action.

2008 UK Open finalist Gary Mawson is joined in the field by father-and-son duo Dan and Daniel Lauby, former World Championship qualifiers David Fatum, Ken MacNeil, Dan Olson, Ross Snook and Dave Richardson.

Chris White, Shawn Brenneman, Jim Widmayer and Roger Carter are other players with big-stage experience bidding to secure their spot.

"It's fantastic news to see record numbers of players entering the qualifiers in Las Vegas next week," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.

"The past two years of the US Darts Masters and North American Championship have been a huge boost to the sport across the USA and Canada, and next week promises to be a great start to the 2019 World Series of Darts.

"We know that competition in the Qualifiers alone will be fierce and not all of these brilliant players can win a spot on the big stage - but the opportunity is there for someone to make a name for themselves in the bright lights of Las Vegas!"

The US Darts Masters will be played from 1200 local time on Thursday July 4 and Friday July 5, with the eight qualifiers taking on eight top PDC stars in the World Series of Darts event.

The 2019 North American Championship will take place from 1800 on Thursday July 4, with the eight players facing off in a bid to win the $10,000 first prize and a place in the William Hill World Darts Championship.

Results from the Qualifiers will be available through the PDC website and DartConnect on July 2-3.

Worldwide TV coverage of the US Darts Masters and North American Darts Championship will include live broadcasts through DAZN in the USA, Canada and Brazil.

UK fans will be able to watch the US Darts Masters through ITV4, with the North American Championship available worldwide through PDCTV-HD at video.pdc.tv.
