There will be an early season League Cup competition consisting of two groups where clubs race five home and five away fixtures - the group winners then take part in a two-legged final.
North group: Berwick, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Redcar, Scunthorpe, Sheffield and Workington.
South group: Ipswich, Leicester, Newport, Plymouth, Rye House and Somerset.

League fixtures will consist of one home and one away - top six clubs then take part in the play-offs. These will be split into two groups with first and second teams in the league choosing the other two clubs to join their group for two home and two away fixtures - the winner of each group then face each other in a two-legged Grand Final home and away to decide the Premier League Championship.

Next six clubs (positions 7-12 in the league) will take part in a separate competition - same format for league play off competition. The two bottom clubs will not take part in any further competitions.

Knock Out Cup: two byes to quarter final (Berwick and Sheffield). Round 1 – Somerset v Ipswich, Edinburgh v Rye House, Plymouth v Glasgow, Workington v Scunthorpe, Newport v Leicester, Newcastle v Redcar.

Riding order: the rider with the highest average always rides at number 1, the two with the lowest averages ride at 6 and 7 and the remaining riders can be placed in any order.

One Tactical Ride can be used by a team losing by ten points or more and a second one can be used if a team is losing by twelve points or more. A Tactical Ride cannot be used until heat five and is not permitted after heat twelve.
