Jonny Clayton has been confirmed as the final representative of the PDC roster to compete in the inaugural Bahrain Darts Masters which takes place between 12-13 January.

Clayton, who lost to Dimitri Van den Bergh at the 2023 World Darts Championship quarter-finals, will join newly-crowned world champion Michael Smith, Gerwyn Price, Peter Wright, Rob Cross, Luke Humphries, Van den Bergh and Raymond van Barneveld for the brand new event. For world number five Humphries, this will be his first time competing on the World Series of Darts debut.

The PDC’s World Series of Darts will be heading to Bahrain for the very first time this month and it will kick off the global tour. 


The eight Asian representatives are headlined by Singapore's legendary star Paul Lim, Japan's recent World Championship representative Toru Suzuki and Bahrain qualifiers Bassim Mahmood and Abdulnaser Yusuf.

In addition, Japan's Yuki Yamada, Philippines' Alain Abiabi, India's Nitin Kumar and Hong Kong's Man Lok Leung will star in the event.

The World Series of Darts circuit will also visit Denmark, America, Australia and New Zealand during 2023, before the season-ending World Series of Darts Finals in the Netherlands.

Elsewhere, it has also been confirmed that reigning champion Van den Bergh will headline the field at the 2023 Nordic Darts Masters on January 20-21, with the stars for the World Series of Darts event in Copenhagen all revealed.

The 16-player event will be held between 20-21 January at Forum Copenhagen, with three sessions of action taking place to decide who will walk away with this year’s title.

Van den Bergh will return to Copenhagen to defend his crown later this month, with 2021 champion Michael van Gerwen also back in action after his World Darts Championship final defeat to Smith at Alexandra Palace.

World number one Smith will also be competing in the Danish capital, alongside former World Champions Wright, Price and Cross, the impressive Humphries and Welsh superstar Clayton.

The eight Nordic representatives will include PDC Tour Card Holders Darius Labanauskas, Madars Razma and Vladimir Andersen, as well as Swedish World Cup veteran Daniel Larsson.

They are joined by four other qualifiers from the 2022 PDC Nordic & Baltic Order of Merit, Finland's Marko Kantele, Swedish duo Dennis Nilsson and Andreas Harrysson and Denmark's Benjamin Drue Reus.
