The Speedway of Nations is an annual speedway event held each year in different countries. The first edition of the competition in the current format took place in 2018, replacing the Speedway World Cup on the international calendar. It was the first time an official FIM international pairs competition was staged since the World Pairs Championship ceased in 1993. Russia are the current champions, having won the tournament in 2018.
Each meeting is staged between seven national teams, with each national team represented by two riders. A third rider, who must be aged 21 years or under, acts as a reserve and can be used at any time. Each pairing rides against each other once. The combined total of each pair will be used to determine the outcome.
Two semi-finals are held in different countries, with the top three teams in each progressing to the final. The final is then staged between the hosts and the six qualified nations. It takes places over two rounds, with the second and third placed nations progressing to the semi-final, which is a single race. The winner of the semi-final faces the first placed nation in the Grand Final. The Grand Final winners are crowned Speedway of Nations champions.
