The Premier League Riders Championship is a contest between the top riders (or two riders) with the highest average points total from each club competing in the Premier League in the UK. The championship was inaugurated in 1995, the same year that the Premier League was formed. For its first two years, the Premier League was the top league in Britain. From 1997 it was the second tier after the Elite League was formed.

The competition is currently held at Owlerton Stadium.
