A field of 154 players has been confirmed for the 2021 Ladbrokes UK Open, which will take place from March 5-7 in Milton Keynes.

PDC Tour Card Holders will be joined by qualifiers from the Development Tour, Challenge Tour and Qualifying Schools Orders of Merit to compete for a £450,000 prize fund.

Six Tour Card Holders (Wesley Harms, Robert Marijanovic, Daniel Larsson, Michael Unterbuncher, Darren Penhall and Boris Kcrmar) will not be competing, therefore six players will receive a first round bye.

A busy Friday afternoon session will see the opening three rounds take place, beginning with 26 round one fixtures, featuring Tour Card Holders ranked 97-122 in addition to the qualifiers.

Round two will include Tour Card Holders ranked 65-96, while Tour Card Holders ranked 33-64 will enter the competition in round three.

The 32 third round winners will advance to Friday evening's fourth round, where Tour Card Holders ranked 1-32 enter the tournament, including the likes of reigning champion Michael van Gerwen and world number one Gerwyn Price.

The annual festival of darts is usually held at the Butlin's Minehead Resort in Somerset, but due to the ongoing situation will this year be staged at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes.

The full 154-player field is listed below.

The draw for the first three rounds of the tournament will be made later today (Monday March 1).
