  1. This new contract for coverage of the Extraleague from 2019 to 2021 is reportedly worth 60 million PLN as against 25 million PLN for the period 2016-18. Phil Rising recently wrote a piece in the Star regarding the FIM and BSI are very unhappy at the Extraleague scheduling matches now on Friday`s-including those friday`s which are practice days for the GP the following day It didn`t register at the time of reading it why the Extraleague would want to do this. The FIM/BSI could easily scupper this plan by insisting that all riders must be present at the draw on practice day.( even getting them to pull their own draw number out) In this weeks Star(excellent edition) it becomes clearer when it says that N Sport have lost the exclusive rights and are from next season sharing the Extraleague coverage with Eleven Sports. I have subsequently found out that the intention is all matches are now being televised live- 2 on Friday`s on eleven and 2 on Sunday`s on N Sport- happy days for us Polish TV and internet watchers !!!!! I`m not sure how this is all going to resolve itself- I can`t see that the GP riders will be happy missing practice to ride in an Extraleague match- surely with only 14 round matches to fit in over the regular season there must be dates available that don`t encroach on GP weekends.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    You keep on saying 2 GP`s - however the reserve dates are on another 6 GP weekends. Hell of a difference if they use some of those !!!!
  3. I`m excited !! R & R bookmakers are funding the competition for a 7th year- and the best Speedway bookmaker in the UK has made the competition better for the punters(i know my generosity is unequalled !!) In 2019 we have the introduction of the SPREAD STRETCHER- more of that later. RULES Each contestant MUST place bets in all 10 rounds -in the event of having no money left they are out of the competition Each player starts with £400. MAXIMUM BET PER GP IS £200.minimum bet per GP is £20(or total balance if less than £20) minimum bet per rider is £10. All bets can be edited up to the advertised starting time of the meeting. If a rider is injured before a round starts then the bet is voided on that rider, or bets can be amended up to the meeting start time. If a rider starts a meeting but is injured and cannot continue THE BET STANDS but any points scored by the reserves count towards the injured riders score. If any rider is excluded for a starting offence the reserve points scored do not get added. To ensure fair play bets for the final round may be required to be PM`d to me instead of normal posting. If a meeting is called off at heat 16 then the spread will be adjusted to 4/5th`s of the original. If a meeting is called off at or after 20 heats the spreads stand. HOW TO PLAY One must bet on a rider to score MORE OR LESS than the spread-the HIGHER figure is taken for MORE bets and the LOWER for LESS bets-the mid between the two is what I expect them to score-and they add up to 138 which is the total points available in a GP EXAMPLE These might be 3 of the spreads for the 1st GP of the season Woffinden 10 - 12 .Hancock 7 - 9 Kolodziej 5 - 7 Player 1 might think Woffinden will score more than 12 in Warsaw so bets £100 MORE. If Woffinden scored 15 he would win (15-12 =3) X £100 which is £300. If he only scored 8 he would LOSE (12-8=4) X £100 which is £400 and be out of the competition. Player 2 might think Hancock will score less than 7 and bets £200 LESS Hancock scored 5 so wins (7-5=2) X £200 which is £400. If he scored 11 he would LOSE (11-7=4) X £200 which is £800 and he would be out of the competition. Player 3 might think Kolodziej will have a stormer and bet £200 MORE than 7 . if he scored 9 he would win (9-7=2) X £200 which is £400. however if Kolodziej scored the mid-spread of 6 he would LOSE (7-6=1 x £200 which is £200 SPREAD STRETCHER The other major bookmakers are so predictable offering " bet boosters" "make your own bet" etc etc that i have gone one better and am offering the unique SPREAD STRETCHER. Every contestant has 2 opportunities (separate GP`s) to use their SPREAD STRETCHER in the 10 GP`S(if left in competition!!) The SPREAD STRETCHER is used on a bet on 1 rider - up to the maximum of £200 bet per round (ie £200 on the 1 rider or maybe £100 as the SPREAD STRETCHER with up to £100 on other riders) If the SPREAD STRETCHER bet is to score MORE i will adjust the spread on that rider bet by ONE WHOLE POINT ie Bet more on Woffinden at 10-12 the SPREAD STRETCHER turns it into 9-11 !!!!! If betting LESS the adjustment goes the other way ie Woffinden less than 10-12 becomes 11-13 Obviously if you the Punter get it wrong it`s happy days !!!! As you can tell i`m really excited about this addition to the competition- and rest assured i will be keeping a note of it`s use so that no one gets to use it 3 times(as if punters would try that !!!!) Spread for the 1st GP of the season in Warsaw on May 18th will be up nice and early once the early season form has been studied

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    I’m sure there are 15 riders unhappy with this Extraleague decision. They are all to scared to upset the Polish cash cow. You just wait until a rider racing in Poland the night before has a bad GP - the truth will then come out !!! For fear of repeating myself there is absolutely no need for the Extraleague to schedule league matches the night before a GP.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    Indeed and Polish matches have also been called off when reserves/other team members are not available through postponed FIM Europe/other FIM events. Yet the Extraleague are happy to schedule matches the day after Cardiff at 4.30pm Polish time !! The Poles if they wanted to could avoid GP weekends for any fixtures.

    100% certain there will be meetings on in Poland on that Sunday- either rearranged postponed matches or individual meetings.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    Because it`s about the Extraleague having no respect for anybody else other than themselves. They have the best riders in the world, and the best riders in the world want to prepare properly for their ulitimate aim - being World champion. There are plenty of other Friday`s they can use other than GP weekends. The FIM should have immediately scuppered their plans by ensuring riders are at practice the day before GP`s. 2 years ago the Extraleague even annoyed there own association(Polish PZM) by rearranging a league match for a Thursday when the Polish championships(IMP) qualifying was on- and the PZM had to cancel a round.

    2019 Extraliga fixtures?

    As i said on my last post on the other thread - the TV fixtures are done in blocks of 4/6 rounds. Early March will probably around the time when the 1st lot is decided. As for who is hosting the MPPK that maybe will be known by end of February.
  9. Sportowefakty are reporting that Nicklas Porsing has had to resort to going through the Polish court system to try and get what he is owed to him by Mr Nawrocki. Not sure if DWP is able to give any further information.

    Poland Div 1 & 2

    The Saturday/Sunday dates for the Nice Polska league are for TV and which matches when.They are normally decided in blocks throughout the season. The Saturday/ Sunday dates for Div 2 are presumably because some teams like to ride Saturday`s(eg Rawicz) instead of Sundays. Plenty of reserve dates for both leagues which should only be used for rain offs.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    Lublin preparing for the Extraleague with big stadium plans for 2020.- Google translation. We've got to know the future of the stadium at Al. Zygmuntowski, on which riders from SPEED CAR Motor Lublin are competing. The new arena of struggle will be built in the previous location, and construction can start in 2020. Currently, work is underway to adapt the stadium to the requirements of PGE Ekstraliga - informs Kurier Lubelski. - The decision is already made. For the general modernization of the existing stadium at Al. Zygmuntowski is supported by the fact that we have a ready-made project of such an investment developed a few years ago. We will not develop a new project, we want to update this document to include all the necessary records, eg regarding all installations, energy networks and arrangements with institutions, eg the voivodeship conservator. This is an undeniable advantage of the option of rebuilding an existing stadium. Next year, we could initiate the procedure of selecting the contractor for the investment - said Katarzyna Duma, the President's spokesman for Lublin. The reconstruction of the stadium is to start in 2020 and will have around 17,000 spectators. Currently, works are in progress related to the preparation of the facility for the PGE Ekstraliga games in the 2019 season. - The most important task that the MOSiR is to carry out is to prepare the stadium for this year's season. We promised that the requirements of the league would be fulfilled and this would happen - said Duma. In addition to the Municipal Sports and Recreation Center, companies that want to do part of the work at the stadium where SPEED CAR Motor Lublin is to compete are registered. Out of six tasks, the stadium manager received offers for four of them: renewal of the starting machine, setting up an additional stand, demolition work and reconstruction of fences. The question of repairing the existing stands and building a pavement on their crown is underway. Additionally, in the nearest time, MOSiR should sign a contract for the repair of track drainage. The manager also chose a company that will mount a temporary tribune for supporters of visiting teams (minimum 290 seats). Miłosz Bednarczyk, spokesman for MOSiR Bystrzyca, also noted that one more tender is being prepared. - To adapt the lighting to the requirements agreed with PGE Ekstraliga. Currently, a photometric project is being developed, which will be a description of the subject of the contract - he said. SPEED CAR Motor Lublin will inaugurate the matches of the best speedway world league on April 7. Their opponent will be MRGARDEN GKM Grudziądz.
