Workington boss Tony Jackson says his riders are looking forward to the chance to impress a TV audience when they travel to Scunthorpe.
The Comets take on the reigning Premier League champions at the Eddie Wright Raceway on 30 April and the contest will be shown live on Sky Sports.
And Jackson said: "We actually featured in the first Premier League fixture to be televised when we visited Sheffield many years ago, but it was great news to be told that we were going to be back on the TV screens again this year and it is a major boost for the new promotional team.
"We have generally been entertaining visitors wherever we have been in recent years and I am sure that we will be on this occasion too.
"When I broke the news to the riders they were all very excited about the opportunity to not only showcase their own talents but also to fly the flag for the Premier League.
"The racing at Scunthorpe is always highly entertaining and hopefully there will be plenty of supporters from both sides creating a really good atmosphere on the night."
