The European Darts Matchplay begins on Friday, affording its participants the final opportunity to qualify for the World Matchplay, which will be live on Sky Sports.
Former European Tour event winners Justin Pipe and Vincent van der Voort are set to clash in the first round.
The £135,000 tournament is the year's ninth European Tour event, as 48 players compete in Hamburg across the weekend.
Friday's first round will feature 32 qualifiers competing, with the field having been finalised following Thursday's South & West Europe Qualifier and Host Nation Qualifier.
Van der Voort headlined the South & West Europe Qualifier, as he progressed to a first-round tie against fellow former Austrian Darts Open winner Pipe.
The World Matchplay is live on Sky Sports from July 21.
