A record-equalling 28 nationalities will be in action at the 2019/20 William Hill World Darts Championship.

Once again, international players have had more opportunity than ever before to qualify for the sport's biggest event as the expanded 96-player format returns for a second year.

The number of nationalities at this year's World Championship is equal to the number at the 2018/19 World Championship, meaning the continental flavour will remain at this year's festive feast of darts.

A full list of players sorted by nationality is listed below.
