Mensur Suljovic will make his debut in the Champions League of Darts in September after securing the penultimate spot in the invitational event this week.
The world number seven takes on Daryl Gurney in the quarter-finals of the World Matchplay tonight, with his place in the BBC-televised Champions League having now been secured.
Suljovic joins defending champion Phil Taylor, who qualified automatically, and Michael van Gerwen, Gary Anderson, Peter Wright, Adrian Lewis and Dave Chisnall in the second staging of the Champions League, which will take place in September.
Raymond van Barneveld, who currently occupies the final qualifying spot, exited the World Matchplay after losing 11-3 to Taylor last night.
But the Dutchman is hopeful of clinging on to the final place, with only Daryl Gurney or Alan Norris able to overtake him by winning the World Matchplay on Sunday night.
