Danish bosses have confirmed the Metal Speedway League will return in 2021.

Despite efforts to stage a limited programme at the end of the season, coronavirus restrictions forced the cancellation of the league this year.

But following a meeting of eight competing clubs at Danish SGP venue Vojens last Saturday, Grindsted, Fjelsted, Esbjerg, Region Varde, Slangerup, Holsted, Vojens (SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway) and Brovst (Nordjysk Elite Speedway) all confirmed they are ready to stage action again.

League chairman Annette Vesterskov said: “We want to send a clear message to the Danish speedway fans, sponsors and clubs, as well as to all the riders who have a contract in the Metal Speedway League, that you will not experience another year on the sidelines.”

It’s unclear how severe crowd restrictions and social distancing measures will be for the 2021 season, which usually gets underway in Denmark in late April or early May.

But Vesterskov insists teams are working on a range of plans that would allow them to cope with whatever challenges they face.

She added: “Without being able to go into details, we are working with more models in relation to any restrictions in the coming year, but most importantly all clubs agree to ensure speedway at the highest level in 2021.”
