The 2018 International Darts Open was the twelfth of thirteen PDC European Tour events on the 2018 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at the SACHSENarena, Riesa, Germany from 14–16 September 2018. It featured a field of 48 players and £135,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Peter Wright was the defending champion after defeating Kim Huybrechts 6–5 in last year's final, but he was defeated 6–4 by Ryan Searle in the second round.

Gerwyn Price won his first European Tour title by beating Simon Whitlock 8–3 in the final. This tournament was also the first in European Tour history in which none of the top 4 seeds reached the quarter-finals.

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.[1][2]

Qualification and format[edit]

The top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 30 August will automatically qualify for the event and will be seeded in the second round.

The remaining 32 places will go to players from five qualifying events – 18 from the UK Qualifier (held in Barnsley on 3 September), eight from the West/South European Qualifier (held on 13 September), four from the Host Nation Qualifier (held on 13 September), one from the Nordic & Baltic Qualifier (held on 10 August) and one from the East European Qualifier (held on 26 August).
