The top 64 players from the prize money rankings after the 2019 World Championship, and the 29 players earning a two-year card the previous year automatically qualified for the season. Next, eight places were allocated to the top 8 on the One Year Ranking List who have not already qualified for the Main Tour. Another two players came from the Challenge Tour, two players came from the CBSA China Tour, and a further 16 places were available through the Q School (four Event 1 winners, four Event 2 winners, and four Event 3 winners and 4 Order of Merit places). The rest of the places on to the tour came from amateur events and national governing body (NGB) nominations.

The list of all professional players in the 2019/2020 season consist of the standard field of 128 players, including an invitational tour card for Jimmy White.
