Somerset fans and speedway supporters worldwide will have the opportunity to watch the 2020 British Final via a live stream if they can not attend the meeting on September 26th.

Following a Government imposed crowd restriction of 1000 for the event itself, which falls under the pilot scheme, due to the latest rise in reported Covid-19 cases, causing all tickets to have been sold out, the British Speedway Promoters Ltd have announced an agreement that they have struck with professionals Sports Central for a multi camera production that will include behind the scenes action and live commentary.

Supporters can obtain their "stream tickets" from at a cost £12.95 with the meeting build-up starting at 7.15 and the first race is 7.45. The stream will go live at 6.30. Registration and email verification will be required before purchase.

British Speedway Chairman Rob Godfrey said: “We are delighted to have got to this stage. It has been an incredibly time consuming exercise and when the goalposts changed last week to reduce spectator numbers by more than half it was another major obstacle.
“Now supporters everywhere have the opportunity to watch the meeting live with a quality production from people with vast experience in the streaming industry, particularly in ice hockey."
"The line-up is taking shape and despite some absentees it’s going to be a keenly competitive meeting and picking a winner is going to be tough.
“Live stream tickets are not limited in numbers but we urge you to buy your tickets in advance and log-in early on the evening of the live stream to watch.”

Riders announced so far include two of the planned 2020 Rebels - Rory Schlein and Ben Barker together with Danny King (Ipswich and Poole), Richard Lawson (Sheffield and Eastbourne),Lewis Kerr (King's Lynn and Eastbourne), Josh Auty (Scunthorpe) and Dan Bewley (Belle Vue).
