LEICESTER will launch the new season with six league meetings in May.

The reigning champions, who won the double in 2019, will start their title defence against Redcar at the Paul Chapman and Sons Arena on Saturday May 1.

A week later they welcome Championship newcomers Poole, who include former Watling JCB Lions man Danny King and British Champion Rory Schlein.

The plan is to have all league home meetings completed by the end of August but in the event of the season starting later than it means there are plenty of spare Saturday night dates.

Club boss Stewart Dickson said: “It’s an exciting fixture list, like everyone else I really cannot wait for that moment when we can open the doors and welcome fans back.

“Saturday August 28 stands out with Plymouth visiting us and that means Jason Crump and Bjarne Pedersen, two former Grand Prix riders. Hopefully it will be a warm and sunny evening!

“As soon as government rules allow it’s my intention to get the track ready for some practice sessions in the build-up to the spring.”
