The 2019 Dutch Darts Masters will be the seventh of thirteen PDC European Tour events on the 2019 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament takes place at IJsselhallen, Zwolle, Netherlands, from 24–26 May 2019. It will feature a field of 48 players and £140,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Michael van Gerwen is the defending champion after defeating Steve Lennon 8–5 in the final of the 2018 tournament.

Qualification and format[edit]

The top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 7 May will automatically qualify for the event and will be seeded in the second round.

The remaining 32 places will go to players from six qualifying events – 18 from the UK Tour Card Holder Qualifier (held on 17 May), six from the European Tour Card Holder Qualifier (held on 17 May), two from the West & South European Associate Member Qualifier (held on 18 May), four from the Host Nation Qualifier (held on 23 May), one from the Nordic & Baltic Associate Member Qualifier (held on 8 March) and one from the East European Associate Member Qualifier (held on 10 March).

From 2019, the Host Nation, Nordic & Baltic and East European Qualifiers will only be available to non-tour card holders. Any tour card holders from the applicable regions will have to play the main European Qualifier.

Adrian Lewis has withdrawn from the event, meaning Jermaine Wattimena becomes a seeded player.

The following players will take part in the tournament:
