The 2018 Danish Darts Open was the eighth of thirteen PDC European Tour events on the 2018 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at Brøndbyhallen, Copenhagen, Denmark from 22–24 June 2018. It featured a field of 48 players and £135,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Mensur Suljović won his second European Tour title, defeating Simon Whitlock 8–3 in the final.

This was the first PDC European Tour event to be held in Scandinavia.

Prize money[edit]

This is how the prize money is divided:

Stage (num. of players) Prize money
Winner (1) £25,000
Runner-up (1) £10,000
Semi-finalists (2) £6,000
Quarter-finalists (4) £4,000
Third round losers (8) £3,000
Second round losers (16) £2,000

Prize money will count towards the PDC Order of Merit, the ProTour Order of Merit and the European Tour Order of Merit, with one exception: should a seeded player lose in the second round (last 32), their prize money will not count towards any Orders of Merit, although they still receive the full prize money payment.[1][2]

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