Justin Pipe will begin his 2013 Ladbrokes World Darts Championship campaign against Andy Jenkins.
The first round draw was made live on Sky Sports News this morning by Wayne Mardle and Rod Harrington.
No.11 seed Pipe, from North Curry near Taunton, was matched up against Hampshire's Jenkins.
Gary Anderson, meanwhile, will have to wait a bit longer to find out his first round opponent.
Scotsman Anderson, who now lives in Burnham-on-Sea, will start his bid against the winner of a preliminary round tie between Jarkko Komula and Jani Haavisto.
The £1 million tournament will get under way at London's Alexandra Palace next Friday, December 14.
