Top seed Gary Anderson will face home favourite Max Hopp in the opening round of the 2017 German Darts Masters, while Michael van Gerwen meets Martin Schindler in Dusseldorf.

The first PDC World Series event to be held in Germany will take place from October 20-21 at the Castello Arena in Dusseldorf, as 16 players compete across two days.
 
The PDC Representatives will be the leading eight players from the current 2017 World Series Rankings - headed Anderson, Van Gerwen and Phil Taylor.

In addition, top-ranked German pair Max Hopp and Martin Schindler were joined by Mensur Suljovic in the field after the Austrian's success in winning the Champions League of Darts last month.
 
The remaining places are taken by players from the German Superleague event, with the final ranking weekend having taken place on October 7-8.

Two-time World Champion Anderson has been drawn to face former World Youth Champion Hopp - Germany's highest-ranked player - in the pick of the First Round ties.

Reigning World Champion and world number one Van Gerwen will face emerging star Schindler - who partnered Hopp in Germany's World Cup side back in June.

Phil Taylor marks his final World Series campaign with a clash against German-born Croatian Robert Marijanovic - a player who has featured in two previous World Championships.

Recent World Grand Prix winner Daryl Gurney takes on Austria's Maik Langendorf, while multiple major winner James Wade faces qualifier Kevin Munch.

Stablemates Suljovic and Kyle Anderson collide as two of this season's first-time TV title holders lock horns in tasty tussle.

New world number two Peter Wright will take on the highly-rated Dragutin Horvat, while Raymond van Barneveld meets European Tour regular Stefan Stoyke.

The tournament will begin on Friday October 20 (7pm UK time) with the eight first round matches, before play continues on Saturday afternoon (1pm) with the Quarter-Finals, before the decisive evening session (7pm) sees the Semi-Finals and final take place.
