Stalemate over Coventry and Peterborough move

THE BSPA can confirm an offer has been made to both Coventry and Peterborough which, if accepted, would see them both resuming their membership of the Elite League with immediate effect.

THE BSPA can confirm an offer has been made to both Coventry and Peterborough which, if accepted, would see them both resuming their membership of the Elite League with immediate effect. That offer remains open.

The BSPA very much hopes that, even at this late stage, Coventry and Peterborough will choose to resume their membership of the Elite League; and contribute towards a successful 2011 season.

The BSPA would like to make it clear that they would welcome both Coventry’s and Peterborough’s resumption of their membership of the Elite League in time for the 2011 season: the absence of both Coventry and Peterborough from the Elite League is their own choice.

The BSPA regrets that Coventry and Peterborough have not been prepared to accept relatively minor improvements to the BSPA’s rules supported by the overwhelming majority of BSPA members but have chosen to maintain their threat of costly legal proceedings that can only damage the interests of the sport, its fans and riders.
