IT is with extreme disappointment that British Speedway Promoters Ltd can confirm with withdrawal of Eastbourne Eagles from the remainder of the 2021 British Speedway season.
Despite exhaustive efforts and every opportunity given to the club to meet their financial obligations by the Directors of British Speedway Promoters Ltd, we have now been informed by the club that this will not be possible and they have asked to be withdrawn with immediate effect.
As a consequence a request for annulment will now be made to the SCB (Speedway Control Bureau).
We realise the impact this will have on the sport in general, and the Championship in particular, and we sincerely hope the famous Eagles can return under new management at the famous Arlington Stadium for the 2022 season.
We offer our thoughts to all the riders, staff, sponsors and supporters who are impacted by this extremely disappointing news.
We will not be making any further comment on this matter at this stage.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS, BRITISH SPEEDWAY PROMOTERS LTD.
