The draw for the final stages of the Royal London Watches Grand Prix will be made in Princes Square, Glasgow on September 26.
The qualifiers run from September 22-25 at Pontin's, Prestatyn. For the first time, players ranked 17-32 are required to pre-qualify, which means the likes of Ken Doherty, Mark Williams, Steve Davis, Matthew Stevens and Stephen Lee will be in action.
So too will John Parrott and Jimmy White, who starts in the first qualifying round against Michael Georgiou, the reigning IBSF world under 21 champion.

The final stages draw will see two 'hats': one for the top 16 and one for the qualifiers. However, from the last 16 onwards players will be drawn at random.
The final stages run from October 11-19 at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow and are live on the BBC and Eurosport.
Marco Fu is the defending champion after his 9-6 defeat of Ronnie O'Sullivan in last year's final.
