The current National League was formed in 2009 as the third division of speedway in the United Kingdom, replacing the Conference League. It follows the same rules and regulations as the Premier and Elite League, including the use of rider averages.

There were two previous speedway leagues in Britain sharing the 'National League' name, the main league that operated from 1932 to 1964, and British League Division Two, which was renamed the National League between 1975 and 1990.

Rules

The rules follow those of the Elite and Premier leagues with some relaxation of regulations. Riders who hold a non-British FMN licence are not permitted to compete in the National League.[1]
