Somerset look very likely now and maybe Sheffield depending on the new owners there. 

If Somerset and Sheffield did both move up then its odds on Peterborough will fill one of the vacated Championship places which brings the total to 8 teams, would this be enough for Eurosport, at least Eurosport can i think be aired on sky with the sports package.

Eurosport is part of the sky sport package, but if you want to watch the gp's then you still need BT sport.

BT's GP coverage is a totally seperate contract to that for domestic speedway. Its with different organisations for starters.

I’m sure Eurosport is part of Sky’s Entertainment Package.

The rumor i have heard is ten teams to run in Premiership Monday and Thursday

Ten teams in the Championship not Premiership nights

National league to run as a development league

That would leave the National League in a sorry state.  If two teams move up, and with Cradley and Stoke not running next year, there'd only be four teams left, and two of those would be the 'junior' sides of Leicester and Belle Vue.

So, only the numbers involved have changed, if this turns out to be the case. Fixed nights for PL matches will continue to strangle UK speedway. Not enough customers want those nights and are prepared to turn up and pay. But Hey Ho, why let that spoil a "good plan". Unless televised matches are to be a tenner or less to watch in the stadium there is no point in showing a moribund sport.

I wonder if that means 18 home and 18 away difficult to fit 12 home and 12 away at the moment its sounds good  meeting wise more and more double up as well
