Sunday's play features Andy Hamilton against Co Stompe, the PDC ProTour's most recent Players Championship winner, while Adrian Lewis faces Mark Webster, the former Lakeside Champion who is making his World Matchplay debut, while the night concludes when local favourite Wes Newton meets Alan Tabern.
Monday's play features World Championship runner-up Simon Whitlock against Tony Eccles, two-time World Matchplay finalist Terry Jenkins facing debutant Steve Brown, the all-Scottish clash between Gary Anderson and Robert Thornton and Mervyn King's contest with Jelle Klaasen.
Essex-born pair Colin Lloyd - the 2005 World Matchplay champion - and Kevin Painter kick off Monday's final night of first round action, with Mark Walsh meeting 2004 runner-up Mark Dudbridge, debutant Paul Nicholson facing Steve Beaton and reigning champion Phil Taylor facing Wales' Barrie Bates.
Taylor hit an historic two nine-darters on his way to winning the final of the Whyte & Mackay Premier League Darts in May, an achievement he followed up with a world record televised average of 118.6 in defeating Kevin Painter on his way to the Riley's Darts Zones UK Open last month.
"It will be a little bit wierd watching everyone else in action for three days before I play but I'll enjoy watching everyone else," said Taylor.
"It gives me a couple of extra days to prepare, although my game's been in good shape in the last couple of months and the World Matchplay seems to bring the best out of me too.
"It's a great tournament and a venue I love to play at, and I can't wait to get on stage on Tuesday.
"I'll have a hard game against Barrie. He's a real battler of a player and it's great to see him back in form after his injuries, but I'm determined to win this title again and will be focused on doing that."
The semi-finals on Saturday July 24 will also be followed by the final of the inaugural PDC Unicorn Women's World Championship, with America's Stacy Bromberg facing England's Tricia Wright to battle for the £10,000 first prize.
