This year’s European Grand Prix will take place from Friday April 19th to Sunday 21st in Sindelfingen in Germany.

Sixteen first-round ties will be staged on April 19th, 16 second-round ties will be played on April 20th, with the third round onwards - culminating in the final - held on April 21st.

European Grand Prix Venue

The European Grand Prix is staged at the Glaspalast in Sindelfingen, a 5,000 capacity arena which has hosted all but one of the previous nine stagings of the tournament.

European Grand Prix How to watch

The European Grand Prix, like all the PDC’s European Tour events, can be streamed live through Viaplay in the UK and through DAZN in Germany and other central European countries.

There is also coverage on PDCTV.

European Grand Prix Favourite/odds

Luke Humphries, the reigning world champion and world No.1, is the 4/1 favourite. Humphries won this title two years ago, is a multiple European Tour winner - but is scheduled to meet great rival Luke Littler in round two.

Littler, like Humphries, is enjoying a fantastic year and is priced at 5/1, but will have to beat home hopeful Arno Merk in round one before he can plan for taking on Humphries.

Michael van Gerwen, a two-time winner of the European Grand Prix and also in winning form in 2024, is next best at 11/2 followed by 7/1 shot Gerwyn Price, a beaten finalist in last week’s European Tour event, the International Open.

Gary Anderson, back after suffering from shoulder problems, is 11/1. Defending champion Rob Cross is 20/1, while there are always punters who will keep an eye out for crowd favourite Raymond van Barneveld, who can be backed at 125/1.

Last week’s winner, Martin Schindler, is the shortest price of the German aces hoping to thrill a home crowd at 40/1.

European Grand Prix History

This is the tenth running of the European Grand Prix, first staged in Sindelfingen in 2014, when Mervyn King beat Michael Smith 6-5 in the final to claim his only ever European Tour success.

Van Gerwen and Peter Wright are four-time finalists, Mighty Mike winning the title twice, Snakebite once.

The last two finals have been contested by Humphries and Cross, with Cool Hand winning 8-7 in 2022 and Voltage returning the favour with an 8-6 triumph 12 months later.
