ARMCHAIR ACTION: MONARCHS MARK 400TH MEETING

Sunday June 28, 2020
Not only was it to be the 400th meeting staged at the Oaktree Arena, it was also a Cup Final and supporters can re-live the 2015 KO cup first leg on Tuesday evening via the club's website, and then enjoy the concluding leg, presented by Edinburgh Speedway.



The Cases Rebels were facing the defending cup champions Edinburgh, making it the third successive season that a piece of Premier league silverware would be battled out between these two long-distance clubs. In 2013 and 2014 the two sides had met in the league play-offs, with one-a-piece honours and in the first of those, that earmarked a double winning season for the Rebels, a semi-final cup confrontation had stretched over four legs when the initial tie ended all square.

Add in the fact that just seven weeks prior to this meeting on September 29th the Monarchs had left the Oaktree with a league victory under their belts, a result witnessed by Sky Sports viewers across the nation, the scene was set for a mouth-watering meetings, the Rebels determined to put themselves into the best position possible to secure the KO Cup for the third time in their history, needing something to defend at Armadale three days later.

ReRun Productions and Speedway Portal have again colluded to bring speedway to your streaming devices within your home and the premiere showing launches at 7.30pm via the links below, after which viewers can complete their evening's entertainment by directing themselves to www.edinburghmonarchs.co.uk where EMTV will be streaming the second leg from 8.30pm.
