The 2018 German Darts Grand Prix was the second of thirteen PDC European Tour events on the 2018 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at Zenith, Munich, Germany, between 31 March–2 April 2018. 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 Rob Cross 6–3 in the final of the 2017 tournament, and he retained his title by defeating Peter Wright 8–5 in the final.[1]

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
First round losers (16) £1,000
Total £135,000

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.[2][3]
