German Darts Grand Prix 2023 Preview & Details

The German Darts Grand Prix is the fourth of 13 PDC European Tour events this season. It brings some exciting weekend action to the table, being played from April 8th – 10th at the Zenith in Munich, Germany.

All the tournaments from the European Tour count towards the ProTour Order of Merit, which in turn provides future qualification and seedings for other events. Any prize money earned from the German Darts Grand Prix will also count towards the main PDC Order of Merit. So there are important prizes up for grabs in the event.

Gerwyn Price has been the hot ticket so far in the 2023 PDC European Tour after winning the last two events. Here we look forward to the 2023 German Darts Grand Prix and also provide darts predictions across the tournament.

The matches will be coming thick and fast across the three days of German Darts Grand Prix action. So punters will have plenty of darts betting odds and predictions to pour over as the tournament marches on.

There are 48 players entering the draw for this PDC European Tour event. The winner collects £30,000 on the night, out of the overall prize pot of £175,000.

Reigning champion

Luke Humphries won the 2022 edition of the German Darts Grand Prix. The Englishman took a convincing 8-2 victory in last year’s against Martin Lukeman and will be top seed on his title defence in 2023.

‘Cool Hand Luke’, a previous PDC World Youth Championship winner has found the going tough on the PDC this season. Humphries withdrew from the recent European Darts Open and the International Darts Open.

But in the first PDC European Tour event of the season, Humphries was the runner-up at the Baltic Sea Darts Open, losing to Dave Chisnall. Humphries made a name for himself on the European Tour last year, winning four of the ten events that he entered.

So is a title defence in Munich on the cards for him? Heading up the market for darts betting is Gerwyn Price, who has been in terrific form this season, winning two of the three European Tour events played so far, the International Darts Open and the European Darts Open.

The set up for the German Darts Grand Prix is the same as all PDC European Tour events. The opening day of the tournament will host all the first round matches, with the second round of the event being played on day two.

The field of 48 players that makes up the International Open Darts draw consists of 16 seeds and 32 qualifiers. The seeds don’t enter the action until the Second Round of action, to meet an unseeded winner from the First Round.
The first four rounds of the tournament are the best of 11 legs, while the semi-finals go up to the best of 13 and the Final is a best-of-15 fixture.
