Competitions explained
For the 2015 season, every team will be entered into the following competitions:

Main Standings [formerly The Championship]

Every single team is entered into the Main Standings. Think of this competition as the equivalent of The Premiership (in football). It's the one that, surely, everyone wants to win.

The Mushroom Cup

Designed to give late entries a chance to win a major competition, The Mushroom Cup is a big Champions League type format competition, only longer. And with much more speedway. It's the second of the 'BIG TWO' competitions, along with The Championship.

Manager of the Week

Every week, the manager who scores the most points will be declared Manager of the Week. For the first 10 weeks of the season the top three scoring managers each week will get a free team, which I imagine they can use to try and enhance their chances of winning The Mushroom Cup.

Mini Leagues

When you pick and confirm a team it is automatically allocated to a Mini League consisting of a maximum of 15 teams that were created at roughly the same time. You access the Mini League for each of your teams via the link at the top of your individual team sheets. You cannot have two of your own teams in the same mini league.

Supporters Leagues

If you selected a team that you support when you registered, you will automatically be entered into a supporters league along with everyone else that supports the same team as you. I'm usually in a Milton Keynes supporters league all of my own...

In addition, managers can add each of their teams into one of the following competitions:

The Premiership (formerly Elite League Championship)

Now in its fifth year, this competition is exactly like The Main Standings but based only on points scored in The Premiership. Some people may choose to reserve a team or two in which they only ever pick Elite League riders, in an effort to win this. Some people won't bother. To continue with my football analogys, I think of this as the equivalent of the FA Cup, but without the black and white footage of giant-killing acts by Yoevil Town.
*Points scored by EL riders while guesting in The Premier League do not count towards this competition.

The Championship (formerly Premier League Championship)

Also now in its fifth year, and exactly like the Main Standings but based only on points scored in The Championship. The football equivalent? The Carling Cup, I guess...
*Points scored by PL riders while guesting in The Elite League do not count towards this competition.

The Spring League

New for 2014, every team will be entered into The Spring League, which will run between Apr 1 and May 31. I've run out of football analogies though.

The Summer League

Now in its third year, every team will be entered into The Summer League, which will run between Jun 1 and August 31. Basically, it's a 'last chance saloon' to win a competition for any teams that have lost their way. So maybe it's the eqivalent of the Intertoto Cup? I dunno...

Private Leagues

You can set up private leagues for just you and your family and/or friends. It's really easy, just follow the instructions via the links on your My Team page. You can now also set up 'Open' Private Leagues, which anyone can browse and request to join if they don't have friends and family that play the game.
