Ipswich Witches begin their 2021 Premiership speedway season on May Bank Holiday, the 3rd, at Foxhall Stadium, with Peterborough Panthers the visitors for what is likely to be an afternoon clash.

The six-strong Premiership will see teams race each other home and away twice (A and B fixtures). The top four will compete in the play-offs at the end of the campaign.

There was no league speedway in Britain last year, but the Witches enjoyed one of their best seasons in a long while in 2019, when they reached the Premiership final, only to lose to Swindon over two legs.

REVEALED: The Witches team of 2021

Dates for an individual series this summer involving the league’s top riders will be announced soon with one round taking place at each Premiership track.

But for speedway fans, the hope of getting to watch their teams live once more will be the biggest boost.

All fixtures are subject to change and fixtures that are live on Eurosport will be released in the near future.
