MODUS’ MAGNIFICENT SEVEN will be heading to Dublin for the Unibet World Grand Prix after the 32-player was confirmed on Sunday.
Last year’s runner-up Simon Whitlock (7) joins three-time winner Michael Van Gerwen (1) as a seeded player, with seeding positions being given to players in the top eight of the main PDC Order of Merit.
Joe Cullen, who impressed at the World Matchplay earlier this year, automatically qualifies due to his position in the world’s top 16.
Danny Noppert’s run to the semi-finals of last weekend’s European Tour event sealed his debut in the Dublin tournament – a fine achievement in his first year on the PDC ProTour.
Steve West, who also reached the last four in Riesa, will return to the double-start tournament where he famously defeated Phil Taylor in the his last ever appearance in the prestigious event.
Last year’s semi-finalist John Henderson also makes his return to the CityWest, while Jonny Clayton will make his debut after leading the list of the 16 ProTour Order of Merit qualifiers.
The 2018 Unibet World Grand Prix will be staged at Dublin’s Citywest Hotel from September 30-October 6 and will be televised live on Sky Sports.
