PREMIERSHIP champions Belle Vue will launch their defence of the title in a repeat of last season’s Grand Final at Sheffield on Thursday March 23.

The Aces clinched top-flight gold for the first time in 29 years in a dramatic decider live on Eurosport and discovery+ at Owlerton last October, and the 2023 fixture list shows them clashing with the Tigers again on the opening night of competition – with the return taking place four days later (March 27) at the National Speedway Stadium.

2021 champions Peterborough are also in action in the opening week as they face a trip to local rivals Ipswich on March 23 before hosting the Witches on March 27.

Newcomers Leicester go into action at Premiership level for the first time on March 30 when they take on Ipswich in the KO Cup, whilst Wolverhampton and King’s Lynn open their league campaigns at Monmore Green on April 3.

Easter Monday (April 10) provides a traditional home-and-away double-header between Belle Vue and Wolverhampton in the KO Cup, as well as a league clash between Peterborough and Leicester.

The cut-off for completion of Premiership fixtures is August 31, with the month of September reserved for the play-offs and the KO Cup Final.

The Premiership Pairs, as previously reported, will take place over three rounds this year, and the staging venues have now been finalised as Wolverhampton (May 15), King’s Lynn (June 29) and Ipswich (August 3). The British Final will take place at Belle Vue on Monday August 14.

Live Premiership coverage on Eurosport and discovery+ will commence on Monday May 22, enabling a consistent run of televised fixtures over the majority of weeks building up to the play-offs, followed by live coverage of all the semi-final and Grand Final action in September.
