It was governed by the Speedway Control Bureau (SCB) in conjunction with the British Speedway Promoters' Association (BSPA). The teams from the top division of league racing, the Elite League, took part. Similar competitions were held for clubs in leagues that preceded the Elite League, including the British League Knockout Cup and the Premier League Knockout Cup.
This competition was run on the knockout principle; teams drawn together race home and away matches, with the aggregate score deciding the result. In the event of the aggregate score being level, the teams again race home and away.
