Elite League team building points limit is 42.50

Elite League teams may contain a maximum of three doubling up positions. One rider only to be named in each position. A Premier League guest will be used when a doubling up rider is not available. Where fixtures clash between the clubs in both leagues, the rider's Premier League fixture will take preference except for re-arranged fixtures (e.g. rain offs).

28 meetings to be completed per team before play-offs. Top four teams progress to the play-offs (all play-off ties will be raced over two legs). The team finishing top get 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.

The Knock Out Cup competition will not take place this season.

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.
