With hosts Russia, Sweden, Poland and Germany safely through to the Finals in Togliatti on July 20 and 21, the final three spots in Russia will be filled at the National Speedway Stadium.

Great Britain face off with Australia, Denmark, USA, Latvia, France and Finland with the top two scorers qualifying for the Finals automatically, and the third to fifth-placed teams competing in the knock-out races for the last ticket to Togliatti.

The Lions are led into action by triple world champion Tai Woffinden, British champion Robert Lambert and former FIM Speedway Grand Prix and Belle Vue Aces star Craig Cook.
