The 2016 European Darts Grand Prix was the ninth of ten PDC European Tour events on the 2016 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at Glaspalast in Sindelfingen, Germany, between 16–18 September 2016. It featured a field of 48 players and £115,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Kim Huybrechts was the defending champion, but lost in the semi-finals to Michael van Gerwen. Van Gerwen went on to win the title after defeating Peter Wright 6–2 in the final.[1]

Qualification and format[edit]

The top 16 players from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 27 July automatically qualified for the event and were seeded in the second round.[3] The remaining 32 places went to players from three qualifying events - 20 from the UK Qualifier (held in Barnsley on 5 August), eight from the European Qualifier and four from the Host Nation Qualifier (both held on 15 September).

Daryl Gurney who had to withdraw from the last two European Tour events due to a broken finger on his throwing hand has also pulled out of this event after failing to recover. Third seed Dave Chisnall also withdrew due to an neck injury, moving seeds 4-16 up a place, and promoting UK Qualifier Steve Beaton to 16th seed.

Arron Monk also withdrew due to personal reasons the day the tournament began, thus giving Robbie Green a bye to the second round. The remaining places were filled with two additional Host Nation Qualifiers.

The following players took part in the tournament:
