Elite League team building points limit is 39.90
Elite League teams may utilise one team place to be shared by any two riders contracted to a Premier League team with an official average of 8 points or less - these include (d) after their name, above. Where fixtures clash between the clubs in both leagues, the rider's Premier League fixture will take preference.
Top four teams progress to the play-offs (all play-off ties will be raced over two legs). The team finishing top gets to choose their opponents in the semi-finals. The winners from the two semi-finals then meet in a two-legged Grand Final to decide the Elite League Championship. There will be a handicap points system used in the semi-finals only - starting points will be awarded as follows: 1st placed team gets 8 points, 2nd placed team gets 4 points, 3rd & 4th placed teams get 0 points.
The team finishing bottom of the Elite League table will race in two-legged tie against the winners of the Premier League play-offs to decide promotion and relegation places.
New League Points scoring system introduced.
15 metre Tactical Replacement rule has been removed. One Tactical Ride can still be used by a team losing by ten points or more and a second has been added which can be used if a team is losing by twelve points or more. A Tactical Ride cannot be used until heat five and is also not permitted in heat fifteen.
