The fixtures for the 2021 Premiership season have been amended, with the Witches now starting their league campaign with an away meeting against local rivals King’s Lynn on 17th May.
Due to the government’s roadmap not allowing fans back into sports venues until 17th May, fixtures originally planned before that date have been re-arranged with a few other adjustments to the original fixture list published.
With no Supporters Cup this season, it is league action all the way for the Witches as they face the other five teams in the division four times over the course of the season, twice at home and twice away with the top four at the end of the season qualifying for the play-offs.
The British Final will still take place on 16th August at The National Speedway Stadium. Plans for a Premiership individual or pairs tournament have been dropped following the delay to the season, but a one-off event is currently under consideration subject to availability of dates.
All fixtures are subject to change and fixtures that are live on Eurosport will be released in the near future.
