The top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 25 June 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 2 August), six from the European Tour Card Holder Qualifier (held on 2 August), two from the West & South European Associate Member Qualifier (held on 12 September), four from the Host Nation Qualifier (held on 12 September), one from the Nordic & Baltic Qualifier (held on 24 August), and one from the East European Qualifier (held on 25 August).

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.

Michael van Gerwen and Dave Chisnall, who were set to be the 1st seed and 4th seed respectively, withdrew prior to the tournament. All seeds below Van Gerwen moved up a place and all seeds below Chisnall moved up two places. Jeffrey de Zwaan and Jamie Hughes became 15th seed and 16th seed respectively, and an extra two places were made available in the Host Nation Qualifier.
