  • No automatic promotion from Allsvenskan after 2018-2020 seasons.
    Allsvenskan teams have to apply for promotions and several criteria will be looked at.

 

Track grading.

  • fixed grading interval after heats 4,7,10 & 13 for Elitserien and Allsvenskan.

Swedish rider quotas:

  • Elitserien
  • minimum 2 Swedish licensed rider per lineup rule is considered to violate EU-laws and might not be used. see this post.
  • minimum 1 Swedish licensed U21 rider per lineup
  • For 2013 all teams agreed on to use a minimum of three Swedish riders per lineup (R/R was allowed) , 2015 will be the same.
    unfortunately several teams have circumvented this by bringing in non-Swedish riders on a Swedish license or simply not followed it at all.
    This has been changed to 2017 and onwards where minimum 2 Swedish riders/lineup is agreed upon.
  • Allsvenskan
  • minimum 5 Swedish licensed rider per lineup rule is considered to violate EU-laws and might not be used. see this post.
  • minimum 1 Swedish licensed U21 rider per lineup
  • minimum 1 Swedish licensed U23 rider per lineup

  • R/R available for maximum one rider/meeting
  • R/R available for the 5 riders with the highest average.

Guest riders

  • Not used in Elitserien
  • For Allsvenskan not limit on amount but they count towards the squad limit for 8 riders with an average greater then 0,500.

Averages:

  • Average limits:
    Elitserien average cap is 10.250
    Elitserien average floor is 8.500
    Allsvenskan average cap is 10.250
    Allsvenskan : TBC/TBA
    .
  • Season entry averages (ingångssnitt).
    Are based on the previous seasons scores and are calculated by
    dividing points with the amount of ridden heats.Season entry average is
    used to select 7 riders for the lineup and stays the same the entire season.
    This means that a team can use the same riders the entire season
    regardless of how much their averages changes during the season.
    .
  • Floating/Alternating/Rolling average (löpande snitt).
    The floating average is re-calculated after each meeting using
    the points/heat formula.12 heat is required for obtaining a floating
    average . Until a riders has a floating average the season
    entry average will determine if a rider will ride at reserve or not..

Transfer window:

  •  Replaced by transfer cards for Elitserien and Allsvenskan. Each teams has three transfer cards and can use
    them when they have completed at least 2 but no more then 75 percent of their meetings (11 meetings for Elitserien).

Heat schedule

  • a modified version of the 15 heats heat schedule that have been used since 2011 will be used in Elitserien
    which means no second reserve heat and where heats 12-14 are moved forward by one notch.
    Allsvenskan will still use the old heat schedule.
  • Grading pauses will be pre-decided and after the same heats for all tracks.
  • Grading pauses after heats: 4, 7, 10 and14 for Elitserien / Allsvenskan. Extra grading
  • Division 1 will use a 5 man heat schedule of the same type that is used in Denmark.

Ther have been suggestion from Svemo to introduce a salary cap at 2.9 million kronor (£278000) however as of Friday afternoon only three teams have sent in
their approval.

IMO Piraterna's team manager Stefan Andersson describes the problem with it very well:

 

-Jag är för ett lönetak, men då måste det vara under ordnade former; en kontrollnämnd som fungerar och med registrerade kontrakt, säger Piraternas sportchef Stefan Andersson.
I am a supporter of a salary cap, but it has to be under controlled forms: a controller committee that works and with registered contracts.

-Som det ser ut nu kommer andra bara att skratta åt oss när sponsorer kan betala i stället. Vi måste veta vad vi får och inte får göra.
the way that it looks now, other will just laugh at us when they can have the sponsors pay the salary instead. We have to know what we are allowed and not allowed to do.


What Stefan is saying is that some teams would follow that cap while others will be able to let the sponsors pay the riders so that
he team appears to have lower salary costs then they actually have. If i'm not misstaken Rune Holta got a quite large tax penalty a few years ago
for sponsor money from one of Vetlandas sponsors . Skattetverket (Swedish Tax Agency) considered it be a salary which Rune of course hadn't paid any tax for since
he considered it sponsorship.

Personally i agree with Stefan, there is no point in having it if they teams can bypass it. Edited by Ghostwalker

first post updated with the agreed rule changes for 2012.

rules taken from: http://www.svemo.se/...eglerinfor2012/

 

 

There also speculation about many of the riders.

 

Especially riders like

  • Chris Holder
  • Darcy Ward
  • Piotr and Przemyslaw Pawlicki
  • Rune Holta
  • Fredrik Lindgren
  • Tomasz Gollob

Pawlickis have been rumoured to Elit Vetlanda. If my calculations are correct. Vetlanda can squeeze them in together with the 5 confirmed signings and still have 0,039 to the average cap.

Freddie Lindgren is claimed to be very close to sign with Västervik.

Gollobs whereabouts are also uncertain since Hammarby's team manager made a statement to the press that Gollob (and a few other riders) were not desirable for the 2012 season.

I think that there would be many team interested but perhaps Västervik where Tomasz for for over 10 years would be a strong candidate. However Västervik doesn't most surely

not the amount of money required for such a signing.

"Swedish speedway's governing body Svemo has set out the rules for the 2012 Elitserien season.

 

Riders in Swedish competitions receive an average according to how many points they score per race rather than over four heats, which is the system used in the British leagues. The new rules see each team given an equivalent of a 42 points limit for building their teams and managers must achieve a minimum of 35 points,

 

Each of the eight clubs are only allowed to sign a squad of seven riders, with the addition of two Swedish guest riders who also compete in the Allsvenskan League if they choose to do so.

 

In an effort to bring youngsters through the Swedish system, every team must also feature a minimum of two Swedish-licensed riders with one ride under the age of 21."

 

Nice to see the averages falling in line with what most fans are used to and makes it much easier to grasp and compare riders performances.

 

I certainly think the two national rider stipulation is a good one for those outside the main seven. Also it should go without saying that any league that demands a rider be included on an 'under a set age' rule is very good for that league's nation.

THJ have decided to leave Smederna for Gnistorna.

 

THJ were about to sign for another year with Smederna when Gnistorna raised their bid more then Smederna could match.

 

Obviously i'm quite disappointed but as always money talks.

Errrm? I was just commenting on the averages and make up of the teams!

 

I quoted a source that had the information presented in a more readable form paragraph wise. Plus, last i saw of the original thread it said "a new system to calculate averages will be presented later."

 

Anyways, no biggie and thanks as ever to Ghostwalker for all the info.
