The 2017 European Darts Open was the eighth of twelve PDC European Tour events on the 2017 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at Ostermann-Arena, Leverkusen, Germany, between 30 June–2 July 2017. It featured a field of 48 players and £135,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Michael van Gerwen was the defending champion after defeating Peter Wright 6–5 in the final of the 2016 tournament,[2][3] but lost 6–2 in the third round to Rob Cross.

Peter Wright won the tournament, defeating Mervyn King 6–2 in the final.

Qualification and format[edit]

The top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 11 May automatically qualified for the event and were seeded in the second round.

The remaining 32 places went to players from five qualifying events – 18 from the UK Qualifier (held in Wigan on 16 June), eight from the West/South European Qualifier (held on 29 June), four from the Host Nation Qualifier (held on 29 June), one from the Nordic & Baltic Qualifier (held on 19 May) and one from the East European Qualifier (held on 22 June).

Adrian Lewis withdrew for health reasons the day before the event, meaning a fifth Host Nation Qualifier took his place.[5]

On 2 July, Joe Cullen withdrew before his third round match after his father suffered a heart attack;[6][7] consequently Mensur Suljović was given a bye to the quarter-finals.

The following players took part in the tournament:
