The bet365 US Darts Masters will be the fourth staging of a competition which is the first of six events in the 2022 World Series.
Sixteen stars of the PDC, including Michael van Gerwen, world champion Peter Wright and Queen of the Palace Fallon Sherrock, plus eight North American players make up the 16-player field for the £60,000 bet365 US Darts Masters.
The eight Europeans feature seven members of this year's Premier League field plus Sherrock, who stole the hearts of darts fans in 2019 when she became the first woman to beat a male player at the PDC World Championship.
The North American contingent are headed by ex-Lakeside runner-up Jeff Smith plus dangermen Danny Lauby Jr and Matt Campbell.
The bet365 US Darts Masters is being held on 3rd-4th June, 2022.
It is the first of six World Series events over the course of the summer, the other five being held in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, two in Australia, one in New Zealand, before the top 16 head to the AFAS Live in Amsterdam in mid-September for the finals.
The bet365 US Darts Masters is this year being staged at the Hulu Theater, part of Madison Square Garden, in New York City.
This is the fourth running of the event, the previous three having been held in Las Vegas.
The bet365 US Darts Masters is being broadcast live on ITV4 in the UK, through the PDC's worldwide partners DAZN and Viaplay and also on pdc.tv.
This is the fourth time the bet365 US Darts Masters has taken place.
The inaugural staging of the competition was in 2017 at the Tropicana Las Vegas and was won by Michael van Gerwen.
Three separate runnings of the competition have produced three different winners.
Michael van Gerwen won the first bet365 US Darts Masters, beating Daryl Gurney 8-6 in the 2017 final.
Twelve months later it was the turn of Gary Anderson to lift the trophy after he had overcome Rob Cross 8-4 in the final.
And last time out – in 2019 – it was Nathan Aspinall who came good. The Asp saw off Michael Smith 8-4 in a final in which he averaged 106.70.
Michael van Gerwen, the inaugural winner of this event, is the favourite for this year's bet365 US Darts Masters ahead of his six Premier League rivals.
