In line with the rest of the speedway world, the Swedish Bauhaus Elitserien will have a delayed start and a series of other measures have been announced to ensure that the season will be able to be completed, assuming no worsening of the situation around the Coronavirus.
The Elitserien will start a month later than planned on 2 June and the first four rounds of the season will be moved to elsewhere in the calendar.
At the same time they have cancelled the quarterfinals so only the top four clubs can go into the post season.
They have also dramatically changed the rules to make sure there are enough riders for each match. They will allow guest riders, lower the average from 8.500 to 8.000 enabling more riders to be eligible for racing and changed rules around transfers allowing seven instead of three. This will surely mean an increase in younger Swedish riders filling up spaces left by Poles and Danes who may be on the team's roster, but are unable to travel to the country.
