Former world champions Mark Williams and Ken Doherty have been confirmed for Matchroom's new Championship League, which will run over 16 days, starting at the end of February.
Williams and Doherty appear in the first of eight groups that will eventually produce a player for the Premier League, which is staged around Britain from September to December.
The other players in the first group will be Matthew Stevens, Ali Carter, Ryan Day, Barry Hawkins and Joe Perry.
The winner will go through to the final group. The bottom two will be eliminated. The other four players will go into group two to try again, where they will be joined by Joe Swail, Anthony Hamilton and one further player to be confirmed.
Shaun Murphy and Mark Selby will feature in later groups.
The League will be broadcast exclusively on the internet on betting websites.
